Heroes of the faith

We mourn the loss, and celebrate the ultimate victory of Bert and June Bain – who are both now in the presence of Jesus. Our beloved former pastors recently passed away – Bert on 26 July 2019, and June on 2 February 2020.

Ps Bert and June Bain arrived at Parramatta Christian Church in 1986 and faithfully devoted 22 years of their lives to our church – as God brought restoration to a struggling congregation. As our church got back on its feet under Ps Bert’s leadership, we were able to plant a church in Guildford, and to help relaunch a church in Ryde. We also saw missions work and giving become a key focus.

We thank God for the great blessing that Bert and June Bain have been to our church over two decades, and the legacy they leave behind. Their absence is felt by all who loved them, however we rejoice that Bert and June are now face to face with the Saviour, who they faithfully proclaimed and worshipped.

Ps Bert and June are survived by their children Robert, Ian, Roselyn, Alan and Allison.


Should friends wish, the Bain family have requested that any memorial gifts go towards the Parramatta Christian Church building fund.
