Welcome to the Home page of the Manna House ministries.

Out in the hills of Hall, NSW, just outside the Australian Capital Territory border, not far from where
the grapes and hazelnuts grow and the alpacas, cattle and horses roam, just off Wallaroo Road and along Oakey Creek Road,
a new ministry has emerged called "the Manna House" ministry. This ministry has been established on a
17 hectare property, called ‘Rivendell’, acquired by
Gary & Jennifer Strachan and Jennifer's father, Noel Coleman.

This ministry is named after
MANNA taken from the Bible that refers to the "bread from heaven" given
and used by God to teach lessons for spiritual instruction, as well as physical sustenance. God's provision
of manna was so we would learn 'that men and women don't live by bread only; we live by every word that
comes from GOD'S mouth' (Deut 8:3)

The focus of this ministry is two-fold:

First, it was born out of a particular burden for the health and well-being of vocational Ministers and

Secondly, it grew out of a felt need for a place of quiet reflection ‘close to town' to encourage a more
contemplative spirituality among all Christians.
