To repent, to dedicate ourselves for the Glory of God, to be not afraid, and in the context of appropriate grief for our nation turning away from God that people in their distress will turn to God instead of rejecting Him.

All are welcome but you may have a closer venue where you have been before (but if not, why not make it happen). Join us in spirit WHEREVER YOU ARE. Come to the top of the hill to overlook the Swan River and the Darling Range. Facilities: Toilets, Playground, Barbecues.

Celebrate the freedom we still have in this nation and pray earnestly that we will continue to have freedom to uphold and teach Christian truth in our homes (“around the kitchen table”), in our Christian schools, in our churches and in public.

Dedication for the year, for ourselves, our families, our churches and ministries, our communities, our nation, our governments, our leaders especially our Prime Minister, our suffering brothers and sisters here and elsewhere, the Islamic peoples, the Middle East, the peace of Jerusalem, our world.

For young families. If you aren’t going elsewhere for the day then come and maybe have a picnic breakfast down on the pier on the banks of the Swan. You can do it! Good soldiers for Jesus Christ for our day and for our nation can do it!! Come on young, and young at heart, you can do it! We have had up to 24 attending from 5 different churches representing 5 denominations.

At sunrise it is suggested we join in saying The Lord’s Prayer followed by quiet singing of The Lord’s Prayer – the Millennium version to tune of Auld Lang Syne.

You may choose to read a Psalm of praise or dedication

Parking is through the main entry but there is also roadside parking next to the reserve.

The Lord’s Prayer – Matthew 6:9-13

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from te evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.”

Heritage of Success Hill

Known as traditional Noongar land and an important meeting place. To Noongar people this side of the Swan is known as Yellagonga’s country. Captain James Stirling explored this area in 1827, 2 yrs before the founding of the colony. We acknowledge the Noongar heritage and are grateful to use this area to dedicate the Year.

Covid 19 pandemic. Pray for wisdom re management of infection, the use of vaccine, the fragmentation of society, the loss of income for families, for there to be no division amongst God’s people in evangelism, and that people in their distress will turn to God.
