Will you pray with us?

The team at Jericho Road count it an immense privilege to be in a position to show God’s love to the most vulnerable in society. We know that to do this effectively, we must continually bring our thoughts, ideas, ministries and needs before God in prayer.

We are always keen to have people partner with us in prayer. If you would like to receive regular updates and prayer requests – for Jericho Road in general and for particular concerns such as bush fires and the drought – please complete the form below to be added to our Prayer Letter email list.


Tell Parliament what you believe

Let NSW Parliament know you believe all children are made in the image of God, including children with disabilities; and that you want to see Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital funded so it can provide the healthcare these children need.

“To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly,

We are citizens of NSW who believe everyone is made in the image of God. Including children who live with disabilities and complex medical needs. 

We are grateful NSW devotes $30,000,000,000 to provide healthcare for patients in public hospitals, and for many patients in specialist faith-based hospitals, such as palliative and neonatal care. 

The only hospital dedicated to the health of children with disabilities in NSW is Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital. It operates on a $5,500,000 budget to employ 150 staff, mostly nurses, as they meet the health of 120 special children. 

While Allowah is grateful for the adhoc MOU with Sydney Children’s Hospital Network to help fund this healthcare, the nature of the agreement means it provides just $5,000 per year. 

To keep caring for these children, this level of funding is inadequate. A problem made more urgent by the state’s COVID lockdown. It has forced the hospital to shut down programs, leading to damaging financial loss.

We humbly petition the Legislative Assembly to ask Ministers to provide $1.6M in emergency funding and $1.6M in annual block funding to Allowah Presbyterian Children’s Hospital — so it can recover from the setbacks of COVID and continue caring for children with disabilities. 

We need your support, so that we can continue to support the children of New South Wales.”
