I have lived a very blessed life. Blessed doesn’t always mean everything goes your way and blessed doesn’t mean you don’t get sad. To me, blessed is knowing. It is a contentment in a knowledge of the truth. I have spirit filled parents, and was brought up attending church every Sunday. Around the age of 9 or 10 I was aware that a lot of my friends were seeking for, or being filled with the Holy Spirit. I didn’t want to be left out so started attending meetings for the children who......
One of the three Melbourne Assemblies located in Box Hill, hosted their annual Sunday School Book Night last Sunday. The communion meeting talk had a focus on raising children, later in the meeting the children were invited on stage to sing some choruses, actions and all! Families were called to the stage to receive their books, speaking into the microphone proved popular with some of the young ones! The meeting was a great opportunity to celebrate the young families, that make up the whole family of God....
Through scorching days, windy days and cold nights with clear starry skies, saints got together at Freshwater Creek over the holiday break to celebrate the end of one year and to ring in the new. The light of the spirit shone in our hearts and minds, as was the camp theme: Shine The Light. During the meetings, we sang, we were entertained, and we heard from pastors and elders young and old on the theme of The Light. Pr Rob, all the way from London, reminded us that the eternal is not......
This year’s RCC Forster/Tuncurry Christmas Camp was well supported by Queensland and NSW saints. Cool north-east winds and clear skies provided a good back drop for outdoor activities, including walking trips, fishing, swimming, New Year’s fireworks, a breakfast BBQ by the river and yoga style exercises. The ladies’ coffee afternoon at Green Point went well. And the guys, not to be outdone, went to Hamiltons for coffee by the river. Our camp theme, “Abide in him” 1John 2 :28, was explored by our speakers and helped to give a sense of what......
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......
The sky was blue, the sun was shining, the kangaroos were hopping and the spirit was moving. In the first week of Victoria’s school holidays, Melbourne hosted our annual Young Revivalists Camp at Camp Weekaway in Lancefield, Victoria. It was another successful year. This year’s camp theme was strength: ‘He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might he increaseth strength’ Isaiah 40v29. Fittingly, our three teams represented strength as illustrated in the Bible: Unicorns, Lions and Eagles. We heard talks during the week from our very young......
We recently visited the Sigatoka Assembly for an uplifting visit with Pr. Apenesa, his lovely wife Kini and a fiery, fun loving, God fearing family of Saints. Thank you for such warm hospitality, beautiful singing, joyous testimony, reading the Word and the love you shared with us. The Sigatoka Saints would love to have you visit them… A map below from Nadi. It’s an easy and lovely drive to get there. Here are a few snippets of our wonderful time this day, much love to you all and hope to see you soon again.......
Greetings and God Bless from Morobe Zone, PNG, to everyone! During the month of May, we are having exciting stuff here in Morobe Zone. On Saturday, 12th May 2018, we had a new house meeting hall opening at 3 Mile in Lae. Many thanks to Pastor Simon Beles and the 3 mile community for tireless effort in building the hall. Amazingly, the hall was built by a non-church member with help from mostly kids. It was a great time of fellowship and as we continue to move the Lord’s work. The turn......
The Easter Camp at Freshwater Creek is always a short one but a welcome break from our busy lives. We are able to get away from everyday life with like-minded people and really contemplate the things of God. The theme of the camp was “He is the Rock, so let’s roll.” What great inspiration for some wonderful talks! We were reminded that we are the body of Christ and that Jesus is the head, we have liberty in Christ through the Holy Spirit. We also have stability in the Holy Spirit as......
In a world filled with “crazy people doing crazy things”, Freshwater Creek camp was an oasis of godly and profound ponderings, interspersed with, of course, “crazy people doing crazy things”!!! Of course difference was the content. Joyful singing, inspired testimonies chock-full of overcoming and miracles, talks filled with wisdom and thought provoking ideas designed to take us into a new year where there will be challenges. But we have been reminded to stand together, and that It’s not about us and what we can get from God, but about reflecting God’s Glory......
