Rae Mavor Farewelled

The Uniting Church has come together to honour the life of Rae Mavor, who died earlier this week at the age of 86.

The former school teacher and much-loved wife of Rev. John Mavor was farewelled in a service at Beenleigh Uniting Church south of Brisbane.

The Assembly has joined with the Synods of NSW-ACT, QLD, VIC-TAS and the Northern Synod to establish a national insurance buying group called the National Insurance Program (NIP).

“The implementation of the NIP is the result of a two-year journey,” said Leo Iosifidis, the Assembly’s National Director of Strategic Finance and Administration.
