Boreham and the Last Tour

In 1935 Boreham received an invitation from Epworth Press to tour Britain and undertake a further preaching tour.

They left from Port Melbourne in March 1936. It was on this trip that Boreham addressed the large gathering of pastors in Edinburgh, when he was introduced as “the man whose name is on all our lips, whose books are on all our shelves, and whose illustrations are in all our sermons.”

In September of that year they boarded the Orontes at Tilbury and from the deck and through their tears, Frank and Stella took their last look at England and sailed for home.
