Right on the QLD side of the NT border Camooweal is a small town with a big heart. The Georgina River starts its slow wander down to Lake Eyre just north of here too. Around 300 people call Camooweal home but the population can swell in the cooler months with the “Grey Nomads” that pass through each year. Summers can be pretty intense but the winters can be lovely. People from all over the region, and the world, have planted their roots in Camoooweal. For such a remote place it is also very diverse with families from many different tribal groups calling Camooweal home. The main industry in the region is Cattle, and many people find employment on the surrounding stations.

Jono and Grace and their children, Elijah, Tjanara & Manoah, have been living in Camooweal since 2005. As well as pastoring the church here in Camooweal, Jono has had the added blessing of being able to visit several remote communities regularly for encouragement, Bible teaching and leadership development.

Camooweal Church

Christian impact on Camooweal goes back a fair way, although things really kicked in when there was a revival here the mid 1980s. This revival saw a lot of people come to know Jesus and become a part of the church here. There has been a missionary presence in town on and off since that time.

Camooweal is a fairly small place and Camooweal Community Church has been a committed small group reaching out to the community around them for some time.

Please Pray
Pray that despite the smallness of Camooweal and the church here, that God’s people here will be a beacon of hope for the region pointing people to Jesus and His finished work on the cross.
