Personal Story: Moss

I was brought up in a very religious family. So I went to both a church primary and secondary school. My father always wanted us to think about things. When I wanted to make things, he would suggest getting a book from the library. I would then design a rocket or a radio circuit and make it. Dad and I would test it and then he would ask “Think, how do you make it better”. Always, think logically. I was a very committed person to God up until I started part time......

Personal Story: Emma

Hi, my name is Emma, My testimony starts back in early 1983. I had seen a change in my brother and he told me that he had received a personal experience from God after he decided to get baptized one night at a Revival Centres meeting. After being baptised, he was filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues (a language he had not learnt or heard before but given to him by God). I decided to go to a few meetings as, I must admit, I was a bit worried......

Personal Story: Sylvio

I was a full time DJ and night club promoter working for several of Melbourne’s night clubs when I decided to get baptised. That choice changed my life for the better far beyond anything I ever dreamt or imagined was possible. I had reached a point in my life where I had lost all my faith in any sort of religion or belief. My mother was a faithful woman who had received something called the Holy Spirit, but I never was interested in her experience or the church she attended. When she......

Personal Story: Rebecca

My name is Rebecca Sue and I have had God as part of my life for the last 22 years.  I grew up with one parent that believed in God, and one that didn’t, so initially wasn’t convinced that God was real.  My mum took my brother and I to church every Sunday and all I wanted to do was stay at home and watch tv.  As I got older I noticed that there was something different about the friends I had at church compared to those I had at school but......

Forster (NSW) Christmas Camp

The Forster Christmas camp this year was a time of spiritual refreshing and renewing friendships. The camp theme “Nourished in the Word and Prayer” was our thought focus and an expectation that was fulfilled. We were well able to enjoy the ample prayer times, bible-based talks, fun time entertainment nights and relaxed social times. Camp activities included early morning walks and swimming, ladies and men’s lunches, boating, a BBQ breakfast, games of table tennis, pizza movie night and a fireworks display. The Tuncurry Memorial hall is again booked for our 2020 Christmas......

Precise Freshwater Creek Christmas Camp

A great time of fellowship was had at our annual Freshwater Creek Christmas Camp, located just out of Geelong in Victoria, as we said goodbye to yet another year and welcomed 2020.  The Aussie summer heat that enveloped the days was relentless, however the pool served the young kids well, and the cold drinks fridge provided great relief for the rest of us. The Monday brought upon us an extreme fire risk situation; however, we were all prepared escaping early to ice-cold cinemas, shops and to the beach for the day. Most......

Auckland NZ Rally – Contending for the Faith

On the last weekend of October members from the six assemblies from the North and South Islands of New Zealand, a good representation from Australia, and Pastor Apenisa from Sigatoka, Fiji, met in Auckland. This annual gathering took on a different approach this year by being held at the Waipuna Conference Centre. With most visitors staying at the venue, which included some first-class catering and meeting arrangements all under the same roof – it was wall to wall convenience. The venue worked very well, especially for those who had journeyed from abroad.......

Victorian Young Revivalists Junior Camp

Last week our annual Young Revivalist Camps were held at Camp Weekaway in Lancefield, Victoria. The Junior Camp for children of Grades 3 to 6 was short, but sweet. The primary aged kids piled in on Wednesday with bags, bedding and enthusiasm ready for four days of fun, friendship and spiritual growth. With no phone reception, no WiFi and less distractions, camp provides the perfect opportunity for all of us to focus on the things of the Lord surrounded by likeminded friends. This year’s theme of the camp was ‘RUN THE RACE’......

Victorian Young Revivalists Senior Camp

The Young Revivalists Senior camp began as soon as the kids arrived on Saturday, starting with them meeting their camp teams and getting to know one another. This year’s camp theme was “Running the race”, with the theme scripture being “Know you not that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize. So run, that you may obtain” 1 Corinthians 9:24. The team names demonstrated the different elements to consider when running the race; Mind, Body, and Soul. This was a great theme, which all the kids......
