Rawson to treat business owners

Broken Hill’s small business owners have been invited to a ticketed business networking event this Saturday, hosted by the Silver City CRC.

The CRC Churches International is an Australian Pentecostal movement that started in the 1940s, and Pastor Jessie Heidenrich has been the local Pastor since July 2023.

The networking event, to be held on Saturday, February 10 from 6pm at the Black Lion Inn, will provide local business owners, big and small, with plenty of networking opportunities, all while they enjoy a presentation from Tony Rawson, a seasoned photographer who has been in business for more than four decades.

Mr Rawson, from Melbourne, spent a year in Bible College before finding work as a portrait photographer.

While the majority of his subjects are regular families, he also lists yacht designer Ben Lexcen, who designed the winged keel on Australia 2 and won Australia the America’s Cup, as a client.

The Fernando family, who own Dilmah Tea, have also utilised the services of Mr Rawson to make a family portrait for them in Colombo.

Pastor Heidenreich, in an interview with the Truth, said, “as a church, we want to have a positive impact on the community and that is what this event is about”.

“I myself moved here with my family nearly three years ago, and we fell in love with the glorious outback lifestyle, and we want to do everything we can to see this place thrive,” she says.

In the time Pastor Heidenreich has been associated with the local congregation, the Church has held several community markets, as well as several workshops which have attracted people from all walks of life.

The congregation’s venture into business networking came about after Mr Rawson approached the Pastor and made the suggestion, and Pastor Heidenreich said she was “was very interested” in the idea.
