Melbourne Youngies Break-Up Camp

The Melbourne Youngies made the journey to Freshwater Creek Camp, located just out of Geelong, Victoria for our end of year break-up camp. The weather was not promising with warnings of strong winds and rain… however this didn’t dampen our mood! As everyone arrived on the Friday night, we started off on Saturday morning with a game of badminton in the Pavilion before heading out that afternoon for a hike in the Brisbane Ranges. That night we had a communal dinner at the rotunda, followed by a games night around camp. Sunday......

Wyangala Dam Camping Weekend

The annual Dubbo and Mudgee assembly retreat at Wyangala Dam was enjoyed by all over the past weekend. With the theme being ‘unity’, we took encouragement from scripture and conversation with one another. We were reminded of the wonderful relationship we each have with God and how we can work together to build each other up spiritually. Here are the accounts of the weekend from a couple of the children.   On the weekend we got to go camping. We saw lots of kangaroos and animals. We didn’t see many fish. I......

Boltenhagen Outreach Camp

Arriving at midnight on Thursday night (after flying into Hamburg and driving for an hour or two on the Autobahn) wasn’t enough to stop us from staying up late chatting about the things of the Lord. “You can sleep when you get home,” says Pastor Konrad, with matchsticks already propping open his eyelids. (He was comparatively quiet at breakfast the next morning.) Of course, as is tradition for our European “camps”, we are provided with an endless stream of food, from buffet breakfasts to restaurant bookings and birthday cake “birthday cake eating”......

Newcastle Assembly Camp

Newcastle had a relaxing weekend at Glenrock Scout Camp for this years’ assembly camp. Situated in a serene valley, with reception blackout, it was truly an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle (but we still managed to smuggle a few coffees in). By day we spent our time at the beach, mountain biking and bush walking. By night the decks of cards brought out the competitive side in some, with a few rounds of 500. After our Sunday Communion meeting we had a great BBQ lunch and fellowship before packing up......

Melbourne Youngies Winter Camp

The Melbourne Youngies went to Freshwater Creek Camp for a wintery weekend away. Arriving on the Friday night, we got started after breakfast on the Saturday morning to renovate the Youngies Shed. It was all hands-on deck to clean, bin, paint, carpet, install, you name it! Treated to a BBQ lunch, it was back to work to finish off the renovations that afternoon. Saturday evening, we had a Mexican communal dinner, joined by some of the Youngies from the local Bellarine Assembly. We had games in the Ranch House, Billiards and Table......

Freshwater Creek AU Easter Camp

The Easter Camp at Freshwater Creek is always a short one but a welcome break from our busy lives. We are able to get away from everyday life with like-minded people and really contemplate the things of God. The theme of the camp was “He is the Rock, so let’s roll.” What great inspiration for some wonderful talks! We were reminded that we are the body of Christ and that Jesus is the head, we have liberty in Christ through the Holy Spirit. We also have stability in the Holy Spirit as......

Tatum Park NZ Easter Camp

The Wellington Assembly hosted approximately 80 saints at Easter Camp in the beautiful surroundings of Tatum Park in Horowhenua. There was plenty to please everyone with a confidence course, flying fox, walking tracks, or places to just sit in the sun and fellowship with the saints. For the coffee lovers, there were afternoon excursions to Ruth Pretty Catering, about 10 minutes’ drive away, and shopping in her kitchen shop for those must have kitchen essentials. Back at camp, the saints were put into catering teams and these, combined with the outdoor dining......

Harrietville VIC Christmas Camp

The Harrietville camp has come and gone in quick time and proved to be a very successful replacement for Halls Gap. We had 100 folk being a good mix from Queensland, South Australia,Tasmania as well as Victoria. A big thank you to Sharna, Connor and staff at Feathertop who have been great to work with and did more for us than we expected. There was lots of prayer, talks and items with good humour and co-operation and plenty of sightseeing was enjoyed by many in the beautiful mountain area. The fishing was......

Hanmer Springs NZ Christmas Camp

The Annual New Zealand South Island Camp held in the alpine town of Hanmer Springs was attended by 70-odd people over the end of 2017 and the start of 2018. Attendees at the camp enjoyed the beautiful sunshine (after the initial poor weather cleared) as well as the various walk and bike tracks, cafes, shops, and the famous Thermal Hot Pools that were on offer. The Youngies especially enjoyed the “tic-tic-tic” of young scootering hooligans who rattled the pavement early in the morning. Word on the street was that Pastor Dave’s snoring......
