Audio mission organisation, Global Recordings Network, will officially open its new missions centre in Prospect, west of Sydney, later this month - and you're invited.
The renovated building, which was completed in late September, houses six sound recording studios and offices for GRN as well as the Crossroads Bible Institute and the NSW offices of Wycliffe Australia and Interserve.
Christine Platt, chief executive of GRN Australia, says working with other mission agencies in a shared building is a "natural choice". "We work every day with Bible translators such as Wycliffe to translate our recordings. We also record audio recordings of their Bible translations for use by two-thirds of the world who can't read or prefer not to."
GRN, which brings together translators, tribal musicians, recordists and the latest audio technologies to produce recordings of Bible stories and evangelistic messages has a particular focus on providing resources for people groups with less than 10,000 speakers.
All are welcome to attend the official opening of the building on 3rd November. Tours will be conducted between 1pm-2.30pm and 3pm-4.30pm with formalities held between 2.30pm-3pm. Please call (02) 9899 2211 to RSVP for catering purposes.
