Harrietville Camp was a great success this year with people coming from as far as Queensland and Tasmania, plus all states and territories in between. Pastor Simon joined us from Monday to Wednesday and ministered to us on the Middle East; he and others entertained with music and song. The ministry started with the importance of unity and each talk dovetailed neatly from there until the conclusion of camp. Singing, poetry, jokes and great testimonies were enjoyed and fun and laughter permeated the chalets. One and all were happy they had made......
I remember being surprised to discover that the concept of christening or “confirming” children isn’t mentioned in the Bible. Instead, the scriptures encourage each person to seek their own relationship with God, regardless of their age. And excitingly, when a child or adult genuinely seeks God, they can expect a direct response. Last week, I volunteered at a Young Revivalists Camp – an opportunity for children in the church to build friendships, try some fun activities, and develop their relationship with God. Being a teenager when I first learnt that God was......
It’s that time of year that, for the kids (and some of us bigger kids), just cannot seem to come fast enough and disappears far too quickly. I, of course, am speaking of the Young Revivalist Senior Camp. Starting from the Box (Melbourne Hall in Box Hill), the kids take a bus, stomachs tight with excitement and car sickness, as they make their way to Camp Rumbug near Foster in country Victoria. Upon arrival they are split into their teams: Elisha, Deborah and Gideon, each to represent the camp theme, ‘If God......
Holidaying in Sawtell over Easter, eating chocolate, swimming, surfing, walks, etc was topped off by an incredible array of entertainment and personal stories of God and His miraculous ways. Healings in body, soul and spirit were freely spoken about at Sawtell Easter weekend. The theme, ‘God with Us’ highlighted the personal relationship we have with God and the power that comes with that. People came from nearly every state in Australia and overseas from NZ and Italy. A very enjoyable time was had by all....
The Launceston Assembly hosted saints at the Greens Beach caravan park in the north of Tasmania over the Easter long weekend. With the marquee set up and the sun out, we were ready for a weekend of fun and fellowship. Each day we were treated to talks from the scriptures, the first covering the true Easter story, why did Jesus have to die on the cross? To die for our sins and make the Holy Spirit available to anyone who would seek for it. The second about in between, when Jesus had......
Let brotherly love continue (Hebrews 13:1). The anthem of Revival Centres youngies. Perhaps at times, a phrase we throw around but take for granted. Praise God the launch camp was not one of those times. 2023 Launch camp (Jan 25th-29th) was full of opportunities to meet the other youngies in this wide-spanning church, to have time away from the world and see the promising young people who love God; the cooks, the musicians, the leaders, the talk-givers, etc. From what I experienced and saw, everyone came away from camp with at least......
Christmas Camp was held at Glenrock Camp in New South Wales. A valley hidden away 2 kilometres south of busy central Newcastle. Saints from 3 different states came together to enjoy a week of fellowship. The theme was Colossians 3:2 – ‘Set your affection on things above’. It was a great time of refreshing and focus whilst sharing testimonies, displaying our musical skills, playing card games, bush walks, bike rides, displaying cooking skills and finding the perfect café experience. Everyone left rested and edified, ready to take on the challenge of 2023......
Freshwater Creek Retreat hosted Christmas camp with the theme ‘Onwards and Upwards’ Philippians 3v14. We were treated to exciting ministry with encouragement straight from the scriptures. The weather was on point with sunny weather, perfect conditions for an outreach on the Eastern Beach foreshore with games and fellowship. During meetings we enjoyed energetic gospel choruses and testimonies of God’s power in peoples lives. There were musical items and even some poems! The New Years Eve theme was ‘We Can Fly’, where children paraded their costumes and even scored a lolly. A communal......
Date 27th/12/2022 Hello Everyone, Happy Christmas Greetings and Belated New Year 2023 to you all RCC Members. “GOD’S PLAN FOR US” “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11” Our heavenly Father has a very good plan for us, which is demonstrated by His thoughts toward us. He is a God who knows what He is about; in fact, He is the master planner. Whatever we are going through as believers in......
Our Annual Young Revivalist Camp was held at a new location at Camp Rumbug in Foster, Victoria. The Seniors (Grade 7 to 10) started the camp on Sunday and were joined by the Juniors (Grade 3 to 6) on Tuesday. It was a great time of fellowship and praise. Young Revivalist Camp is a place for the kids to form life-long friendships, learn about God and take ownership of their Church and to have them ask questions and participate in meetings run by them. We saw kids give talks, testimonies, lead choruses,......
