Melbourne Youngies Breakup Camp

Last weekend the Melbourne Youngies drove down the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay for our Breakup Camp. On the Saturday we convoyed to the Beauchamp Waterfall in the forest for a walk and a swim. Back at camp we enjoyed the beach, sports, rockpools, camp fire, card games and much more! On Sunday, we had a communion meeting on the rocks at the beach, we were encouraged by talks from the Youngies and by the spiritual gifts. It was a top weekend away with a great group of Youngies and a......

Victorian Young Revivalists' Camps

Young Revivalists’ Camp 2017 was, undeniably, a rousing success. Choruses were sung at belting volumes, canoes were capsized, teams were built up and pushed to their limits, sausages were burnt and the damper was, as always, burnt on the outside, raw and gooey on the inside. Every year Victorian assemblies play host to kids from far and wide of all shapes, sizes and dispositions. Camp provides an exciting and unique opportunity for Revival Centre Church’s younger members to run the show. Kids run the meetings, give the talks, make up the band,......

European Camp in Italy

The European Camp at Valles, Italy. As well as fellowship, items and all-around fun, time was spent considering our approach and our motivation. During a day-long seminar led by Pastor Simon and Pastor Geoff from Melbourne, working groups came up with thoughts and ideas on how we approach people. A lot of consideration was given to 1 Corinthians 13, and our motivation of love, and what that means for us. Great encouragement to an audience of Polish, Italian, German, British, New Zealand and Australian saints. Professional translators were used for the day-long......

European Young Peoples Camp

Sunny skies, delicious Italian food and great fellowship – what more could you want out of a youngies camp? Our third European YP Camp this year took us to the beautiful Lake Garda, about two hours from Milan. About 30 young(ish) people from the UK, Italy, Australia and NZ all gathered in Malcesine, a small village on the picturesque, to enjoy the last weekend of April together and rejoice in the Lord. With the weather on our side, our first day saw the group take a cable car to Monte Baldo, with the......

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......
