On 9th February 2012, Rev Bruce Gallacher was inducted into the Kimberly Patrol. The Kimberly Patrol covers all the Kimberly, including Kununurra, where the Bruce and Kaye will be based.

The Induction service was held at the new Frontier Services Community Day Centre, which was opened earlier that day by Northern Synod Moderator Stuart McMillan. The new centre is a great improvement on the former day care facility.

Both the Community Centre opening in the morning and the evening Induction were very well attended, with a strong showing of a range of community leaders, ministers from other churches and the local Uniting Church congregation.

Senior traditional elders spoke and sang as part of the opening ceremony

For the Gallachers, this is a return to the north as previously Bruce had served in the Broome placement. We welcome the Gallachers back to the north and look forward to sharing and supporting this new ministry.
