Church Service 2017 – CELEBRATING 21 YEARS !!

Dear Fellow Exhibitor,

Who would have thought that back in 1997 when the first church service was run at IDW that it would still be a part of the program in 2017.  That’s 21 years!!  We feel very humble and grateful to have been able to run this church service for all those years.

mark-conner-portraitAs we look back, we are amazed at the quality of the speakers who have willingly given of themselves to come and be with us.  This year Mark Conner, who is the Senior Pastor at City Life Church in Melbourne, will be the key speaker. Mark is an outstanding communicator who is passionate about people. He is genuine in his approach and relates to people from all walks of life.

If you haven’t attended a church service at IDW previously, please come and join us this year. It will be well worth your time.  You will also be celebrating our 21st birthday with us and we invite you to join us for light refreshments after the service.

This event will be held in the main judging area from 9:30 to 10:30 am.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We trust that this Dairy Week will be a significant one to every person involved.

Sincerely,

John and Cherie Gardiner – AVONLEA HOLSTEINS
