The afternoon of Saturday 26th November 2011 was special for the Northern Synod, NRCC and the community of Gapuwiyak. On that day Timothy Wanamayku Wunungmurra was Ordained as a Minister of the Word.
Wanamayku was danced into the Ordination service by his clan group and was presented to NRCC Chairperson Yanyi Baker, who led the service with Rev Rronang Garrawurra and NRCC Presbytery Minister Rev Steve Orme.
Visitors from Darwin joined with others who travelled from Galiwinku, Yirrkala and surrounding homelands to be part of the celebration. As part of the Ordination service, various praise, worship, singing and dance items were presented. It was a great day. The afternoon of celebration on Saturday was followed by Rev Wanamayku’s induction into the Gapuwiyak placement in a service on Sunday. Thanks be to God.
