REVEREND Ted Brush declared he was proud to be invited as the guest speaker at the Singleton Anglican Parish Christmas dinner late last month.
The BCA (Bush Church Australia) NSW/ACT regional officer shared his journey with those in attendance on Friday, November 29, to cap off his society's centenary year (after it started on May 26, 1919).
"It gave me the opportunity to thank those who have been supporting us over the years," he said.
"There are towns out there with 500 people and we'd like to encourage people from Singleton to continue to support them.
"Droughts obviously have come and gone over time but this particular drought if I recall correctly is probably one of the three most significant droughts since the advent of European settlement," he continued.
"It will take many years for the pastures to come back so it affects the farmers economically as well as emotionally and spiritually."
