HIS WORD MEDIA
AUSTRALIA’S GOSPEL HERITAGE
John Newton in England, the writer of Amazing Grace was instrumental in getting the Gospel out to the convicts in Australia.
Newton aided the establishment of the first Christian chaplaincy in the new Colony of Australia. Through Newton’s friend, William Wilberforce, they suggested to the Prime Minister of England that Richard Johnson be appointed as Chaplin here.
Johnson left England with his wife in 1787 on the First Fleet, in order to share the Word of God here in our land.
HIS WORD MEDIA continues to build upon the legacy of Richard Johnson and others, enabling believers to freely share the Good News of the Gospel via the provision of unique Gospel tracts in Australia and beyond.
