The 19th Annual Meeting of the Perth Bible Institute was held at the Burt Memorial Hall on the 19th July 1947.

Rev John H Watson was the Principal (1946 to 1948). His comments on the night of the Annual Meeting included these: “The best minds in the world today are concerned about man. All our thinking has not improved our souls…..Can’t something be done before it is too late? It can. We desire to do it. But we urge you to note that man’s only hope is Jesus Christ and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Some 26 graduates were serving the gospel overseas and 11 were in “home service”.
If you were a student during this time, or know someone who was, we’d love to have your contributions. Either leave a comment below, or contact us.
