Large numbers attended all meetings with an estimate of 1,300 people present on the Sunday evenings when the adjoining prayer tent was filled to capacity and many listening outside. A great cross-section of people from all walks of life came, many of whom were completely new to the gospel. There were a number of known conversions and the convenors also had joy in hearing from some for the first time that they had been saved at the annual meetings five years ago. A feature of the back-up was that a team of young people led by S Moore worked hard every day in Newcastle and area inviting people and in some instances arranging transport.
After each evening meeting an open air meeting was held on the promenade and many heard the gospel.
In conjunction with the above, C Sheldon held meetings daily for children at two of the large Caravan Parks where the Word was faithfully sown.
