BROKEN HILL, NSW, AUSTRALIA, April 29, 2014 – International speaker Will Graham, whose grandfather Billy Graham preached extensively throughout Australia beginning with a well-known series of outreaches in 1959, will return to Australia in May to hold a two-day event in the Broken Hill Civic Centre. “Reality 2014” will take place Saturday May 10 and Sunday May 11 and will feature top Christian bands and inspiring messages from Graham.
“Reality 2014” festivities will begin at 2pm on Saturday May 10 in Sturt Park with music from Compliments of Gus and JC Epidemic, and entertainment from comedian Michael Connell. At 6pm a program tailored toward young people (but open to everybody) will begin inside the Civic Centre.
On Sunday May 11, a combined church service will take place at the Civic Centre at 10am, followed by a “bring your own” Mother’s Day lunch at Sturt Park. Later, at 4pm, the final program of “Reality 2014” will commence at the Civic Centre.
The 6pm program on May 10 and the 4pm program on May 11 will both feature live music and brief sermons from Graham.
“Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to visit Australia several times, either to preach or to meet with pastors and leaders,” said Graham. “I love the land, I love the country, and I love the people of Australia. I’m looking forward to visiting Broken Hill for the first time to share how we can find purpose and meaning in life, and I hope that as many people as possible come out to take part in ‘Reality 2014.’”
This will be Graham’s third trip to Australia for “Reality” events. In 2010 Graham preached in the cities of Gunnedah, Moree and Tamworth, and in 2012 he visited Orange, Lithgow and Bathurst.
“Reality 2014” in Broken Hill will be Graham’s fourth event this year, having preached to more than 33,000 in Sri Lanka in February, and to more than 8,000 in Japan in March. Most recently, Graham visited Clinton, Miss., and spoke to 10,000 at the end of March.
