Conference shines a light

MARK this Saturday on the calendar for the fifth Shine Conference.

The conference gets under way from 9.30am with Shine's worship team, Krysalus.

"Krysalus have been part of Shine for the past five years, bringing the women who attend to a place of worship and ready to hear God's word. Carolyn plays the keyboard," organiser Andii Owen said.

"Carolyn plays the keyboard, Renee plays the djembe, harmonica and lead vocals, Ludeen sings backing harmonies. Krysalus have been singing and playing together for eight years.

"They lead worship at Living Hope Church of Christ, Caboolture, love the Lord and love to serve Him through music. Krysalus also plays at birthday parties, concerts and many other events."

Two special guest speakers, Bronwen Healy and Ruth Tuxworth, are preparing to share the theme - Shine in His Light.

Bronwen has an amazing story to tell in the light of the community concerns regarding the use of the drug ice.

Bronwen's background as a former heroin addict and sex worker can relate to those involved and wanting to find a way out.

Bronwen is founder and CEO of the Hope Foundation, whose mission is to help women wanting to be free from addiction and/or the sex industry.

Ruth, meanwhile, has worked in Manila for the past five years at the largest school for the children of missionaries in the world.
