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”......

We were treated to a variety of talks on the theme, with speakers from all over New Zealand and Australia. The Piano (Christchurch Centre for Music and the Arts) was the venue for the convention and it had terrific acoustics. This meant amazing......

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......

Newcastle Youth Outreach

With the coffee overflowing and banana bread by the bucket load, the “Say Something” outreach highlighted Newcastle as place to be over the long weekend. The weekend kicked off with great encouragement from Pastor Mark Wade: if we love God our desire is for everyone to have a relationship with God, as it is God’s will to have a relationship with His creation. In a refreshing format, workshops and group exercises were run on Saturday morning to discuss how to talk to others about our personal experience in receiving the Holy Spirit.......

Townsville High Tea

Last Saturday the Townsville RCC hosted a Ladies High Tea (sorry, no guys allowed). Chief organiser, Debbie Gibson, was our ‘au pair’ for the afternoon and entertained the 21 guests from the Townsville public. There was lots of fun to be had, including a ‘fascinator’ competition, poems, musical items, auctioning of antiques, hilarious stories, food and tea in abundance, and most importantly – the sharing of testimonies. All proceeds went to the Aussie farmers ‘drought relief’ and our African ‘mission fund’. A beautiful time had by all. God bless....
