Freshwater Creek Easter Camp

Four days of talks, fellowship and fun just flew past. The theme of the camp was “No Doubt About It.” The talks given by a variety of pastors really emphasised what a great God we have and what a great vision of God’s Word our church has. There were talks on the importance of speaking in tongues, the importance of baptism, sticking to God’s directions, what healing means, staying strong and the importance of telling others what they need to do. Apart from talks, we had wonderful fellowship with other saints. We......

Port Fairy Easter Camp

Young and old gathered, some new, some seasoned to the Port Fairy Easter camp. Port Fairy a cozy seaside town that offers lush green pastures, riverside fishing, many walks, excellent surf and an abundance of quality cafes with homemade delicacies. What a great retreat for a weekend away of fellowship. The usual icy wind and grey skies were absent this year, replaced by a welcome ray of sun and gorgeous blue skies. All came together at nighttime and morning for fun fellowship and spiritual inspiration in a well-worn cinema. Rousing songs were sung......

Personal Story: Axel

I have been brought up in a family who attend the Revival Centres Church where we believe that God answers our prayers and He is active in our lives. We went to meetings on a Sunday, housemeetings on Wednesday nights and assembly activities whenever they were on. Listening to many talks and reading the bible, I realised I needed to seek for the Holy Spirit as evidenced in the bible by speaking in tongues.   At a Freshwater Creek Christmas camp, I started speaking in tongues while at a seekers meeting and......

'Grow' National Youth Rally

If you know me personally, you’ll likely know that I love two things: plants and language. So when I heard that the theme for the Freshwater Creek Camp, 2017 National Youth Rally would be ‘GROW’, I could scarcely contain my excitement for all the plant analogies I knew would be headed my way (similar to how there’s a bunch of them headed your way now if you care to read on!). After a quiet fellowship-filled first night, we heard talks about the parable of the talents, the church spreading and growing like......

Freshwater Creek Christmas Camp

The end of 2016 brought with it a huge sigh of relief. Another year over, another opportunity to find ourselves in the company of the saints, ready to recharge and reset for the new year. At the Freshwater Creek Christmas Camp, we did exactly that. It was a week or so, more for some, of meetings, items, fellowship, bug spray, beach visits and coffee runs. Grey weather and reluctant sunshine meant lots of opportunities to sit in caravans and share testimonies. Many spent their leisure time shooting hoops on the basketball court......

Halls Gap Christmas Camp

Saints from New Zealand and four states gathered at Hall Gap in the west of Victoria for six days of wonderful fellowship. A total of 170+ campers enjoyed 12 encouraging and inspiring talks and many moving testimonies of healing, deliverance from addictions and provision.  On the first day, the rain made the waterfalls spillover more. The unique Grampians provided many activities with bush walking on a variety of tracks. The Tandara oval was once again the place of a cricket match and scrumptious suppers followed by card games chess and puzzles. The......

Melbourne Youngies Break-Up Camp

A sunny weekend away was the perfect way to farewell 2016: a year of unexpected turns, good times and bad and a fun and fulfilling time for our Youngies. We set out on Friday night and pitched our tents just a short walk from one of mainland Australia’s southernmost beaches in the Wilson’s Promontory National Park. The weather was exceptionally generous over the weekend providing eerily perfect, cloudless skies and a shining sun that reminded us to slip, slop, slap! Of course that didn’t stop the water from being icy cold but......

Scotts Head Camp

Scotts Head Surf Camp 2016 held in this beautiful seaside village perfect for a holiday. Only a few came this year from NSW and QLD who enjoyed some excellent surf, beach, fishing and get togethers. Relax and have fun seemed to be the standard. Our Sunday meeting was awesome, the preacher (don’t you love preaching) exemplified the communion of the body of Christ given for sacrifice delivering us from our sin and its consequences by the will of God. it’s over, see you next year…...
