A hero of the faith

On Friday, 26 July, 2019, Pastor Bert Bain passed away and is now in heaven with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ps Bert and June Bain arrived at Parramatta Christian Church in 1986 and faithfully devoted 22 years of their lives to our church. Over that time, God brought restoration to a struggling congregation. Ps Bert oversaw a period of rebuilding and restoring the church to health.

As our church got back on its feet over the years under Ps Bert’s leadership, we found that we as a church were in a position 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 his family have been to our church over two decades. Ps Bert’s absence will be felt by all who loved him, however we also rejoice that he is now face to face with the Saviour who he faithfully proclaimed and worshipped.

Ps Bert is survived by his beloved wife June, and children Robert, Ian, Roselyn, Alan and Allison.


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