Encounters: Walks of Faith - BOOK LAUNCH

 Introducing:  “Encounters: Walks of Faith”

This book is made by residents of Newcastle Australia for people everywhere to see and hear of the transforming power of God .These amazing individuals and couples have been photographed and interviewed, sharing some of the highest highs and lowest lows of their personal life journey’s, they  represent a wide diversity of ethnicity, age, background and vocation.

Within the pages of this book you will find paradigm shifting, authentic, first-hand accounts of encounters between God and His people; bringing comfort, peace and hope to the darkest of circumstances.

The purpose of this book is to touch the hearts and minds of believers and non-believers alike.  To awaken within the reader a desire to see God move in their own lives coupled with the hope that all things are possible for those who believe. The vision for “Encounters: Walks of Faith” extends beyond this first edition to a sequel and beyond that to Short Films.


My name is Abbigail Barnes and I am the writer and director of this project, “Encounters: Walks of Faith”. I have had my own life radically transformed by a God encounter and my subsequent walk of faith has been a continued adventure of continual encounters. I am truly passionate about sharing transforming experiences of others, that through them we might all grow in our understanding of God and be encouraged to live beyond blessed.

The launch of this book is set for the 30th of November 2019! 

In order to cover the expense of the book launch (venue, catering, decorating and mass printing of books) we INVITE YOUR PRAYERFUL FINANCIAL PARTNERSHIP AND SUPPORT.

I welcome you in advance to the “Encounters: Walks of Faith” family and journey, which is only just beginning!

I am excited to share one more great incentive for all of our partners joining us; I have arranged for 25% of all proceeds to be sown back into Newcastle’s Soul Café. So thank you not only for supporting this book but for ongoing resources provided to this amazing organisation. For more information on Soul Café and the incredible work they do with the Newcastle’s most vulnerable, please visit the below link.

Bless you and may God return every seed sown back to you a hundred-fold!
