On Wednesday 18 November 2020, the congregation of Portland 2 gathered in anticipation for the planned visit of Bishop J Bucchianeri.

Whilst the Bishop and Rector were in the sacristy, a knock came on the door to inform them that the District Apostle had arrived. This unexpected surprise brought much excitement to all those in attendance.

The Bible word for the divine service was taken out of Psalm 23.4 

The District Apostle encourage God's people never to give up irrespective of our circumstances because God is always with us and that He will always protect His church and people.

The congregation continues to echo what a blessed encounter this surprise visit from the District Apostle.
