Avondale Offering: Spirituality and Worship

June 9, 2018

Does planting a church on the campus of a Seventh-day Adventist school strengthen the relationship between education and faith? A study from the Spirituality and Worship Research Centre at Avondale is analysing the plants and making recommendations. Another example of thinking and doing.

Giving to Avondale demonstrates your support for Seventh-day Adventist pioneer Ellen White’s explore-and-engage philosophy (Education, p. 17). Journey with us as we accept the challenge of learning and discovery. And as we use this knowledge to improve lives.

Your donation will help our research centres give us a better understanding of Christian education, teaching and learning, health and lifestyle and spirituality and worship.

Power to think and do: it’s a gift from the Creator. Accept it. Use it. Support it.

Avondale Offering, June 9. avondale.edu.au/giving. avondale.edu.au/egiving. Donations above $2 are tax deductible in Australia.

Thank you for your support.

School Library Shelves Are Bare – Your Help is Needed!

We need your help for the Solomon Islands book project.
There are many schools throughout the Islands with very limited or no resources.
The Adventist Book Centre is part of this project to send donated books purchased at the ABC to the Solomons.
We have already sent books and one book in particular had the schools very excited. Jesus Calling is a beautiful book they would love to use as class readers.
You can visit or phone the ABC with your donation amount on 8876 5200.
