Bushfires

The Australian 2019/2020 bushfire season has been unprecedented in its intensity and geographical spread. Following the fires, Chris has spent some time working as a Bushfire Recovery Adviser (BRA) for a major church body operating across Victoria, this involving him visiting affected communities in the east of Victoria.  Follow the link below for Chris’ role as a BRA.
