Many people claim that "you don't have to go to church to be a Christian". While this is true, we acknowledge that sometimes it can be tough to go through this life on your own!

What could be better than taking some time out with a group of caring people who genuinely value the sacrifices and service of our veterans?

We'd love to help you to structure an event, outreach or an active ministry to veterans. Also, keep an eye out on this web page for our prayer request tab, upcoming events and initiatives to partner with a range of veteran support organisations & ministries.

At ROAR you'll meet veterans and friends who have a heart for helping others. Some will be Christians of long-standing and some will be newcomers - but regardless of their background, everyone will try to encourage you to find the acceptance and peace that you might be lacking.

Since its inception, the ROAR ministry has been very closely associated with the Healing Ministry of St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney. Our ongoing relationship with this preeminent, prayer ministry ensures that we stay relevant to the needs of veterans and that we can share resources and events.

Nothing pleases us more than being able to pray with you, and to be able to pray for loved-ones deployed, on exercise or in training. In prayer, we simply speak out our trust in a wonderful, sovereign God - to whom nothing is impossible!

Since 1993

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 ESV)

While the Rest On Arms Reversed (ROAR) ministry was originally designed to resonate with military veterans, their families and friends - we welcome everyone who has an interest in coming along to a ROAR event or getting involved with the broader aims of the ministry.

Whether you've come from a background in Defence, Police or Emergency Services, you're likely to find some wonderful opportunities for fellowship, encouragement and prayer!
