Advent and Christmas are special times for us as church members. With Jesus at the heart of our celebrations it’s easy to assume that we all share a similar Christmas experience. For Pastor Neville Doecke, who works with Indigenous communities as part of the Finke Rive Mission in Central Australia, Christmas celebrations are a time to put on his creative thinking cap, devising new and inventive ways to instil the message of the season, particularly for the younger generation. The result? A uniquely central Australian Christmas!
