Canungra churchgoers were delighted to have the Governor of Queensland, Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young AC PSM and her husband, Professor Graeme Nimmo, attend the church as part of their tour of the Scenic Rim.

Church Council Chairperson, Steve Moriarty, welcomed Dr Young to the service.

Dr Young gave the first reading during the service, a reading from Matthew, Chapter 5:11-16:

My Country Escape

“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.”

“It was an honour and a privilege  to welcome the Governor to our little church in Canungra, and to have her participate in the service,” said Mr Moriarty. 

“She was very friendly and interested in our church and community, taking the time for photos and to mingle with the congregation after the service. It was a memorable experience for everyone present, and we hope for Her Excellency as well!”

Dr Young and Professor Nimmo had taken part in the Friends of Binna Burra working bee the day before, replanting saplings in an area that had been affected by the Black Summer Bushfire in 2019.
