Forster – Tuncurry Christmas Camp 2013-14

Forster–Tuncurry is a classic coastal holiday destination boasting many coffee and food houses, beaches and an extensive river waterway for fishing and skiing.  It’s against this relaxed holiday backdrop that many of our camp day activities are conducted, including learn-to-surf sessions, swimming, fishing, boating and time in the mega skate park. This year, fine weather and cool afternoon breezes prevailed.

Camp officially commenced with the Sunday morning meeting and, that evening, a Trivia Challenge.  Monday saw our annual ladies’ coffee afternoon at the Dorsal Lounge buzzing with catch-up conversations while the dads and kids played indoor soccer and flew paper aeroplanes in the hall.  Evening entertainment included music, singing, poetry and quiz question times.  The New Year’s Eve fancy dress theme ‘In Pink and/or Bling’ proved to be colourful and creative and overall provided a great night of fellowship, food – and even fireworks.

Regular morning prayer times (speaking in tongues) were an opportunity to refresh in the Spirit and allow the Lord to bless.  This year’s camp theme scripture was from 1 Timothy 6:6 ‘But Godliness with Contentment is Great Gain and we were reminded through the camp ministry that our God is an active and interested God, and that we should continue to place the highest value on our relationship with Him.

All in all, a happy and edifying time of fellowship and learning from the scriptures.  With the camp continuing on into the future, we hope you can plan and book a holiday at Forster–Tuncurry and contribute to the 2014/2015 camp, too.
