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 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......
