St Lawrence Church is the oldest Anglican Church on this island and is over 150-years old - and it looks like it! But this small church wants to spread God’s love into a town where over 50% of its community lives below the poverty line.
Situated in the heart on the main street it is a ‘light of hope’ for the locals that comprise a large number of Hindi faith. A woman’s ministry to new young mothers at the local maternity hospital is one example. Ladies visit weekly and deliver clothing and blankets to the new Mum’s at this bustling hospital that has an average of 3 births/day -on average! The Golden Oldies went and met the nurses and the new Mums with two Mums with one-hour old babies.
This followed to a visit next door where Archer nurse Adele and Junior Golden Oldie Andrea have been working in a 24/7 Health Centre where they attend to 500 patients/day. The medical equipment from Archer residents donations and fundraising was gratefully received and is highly valued. This equipment will increase the number of patients they can see daily and it was heart warming to see how much difference it will make in this community
