Melbourne Youngies Formal

Situated on the pier where the Spirit of Tasmania used to dock, On the Pier was the perfect venue as we celebrated the year that was 2022 for the Melbourne Youngies. The night was filled with delicious food, amazing views, and great fellowship. We were entertained with live music and testimonies from through the year and the role God had played in people’s lives. Each team also presented its film videos which received a lot of laughs! Awards were given in recognition of the hard work and commitment individuals had contributed to......

Melbourne Outreaching

On the lawn beside Brickworks shopping centre, a chatty group of saints gathered, complete with chairs and picnic blankets. The smell of summer filled the air as new arrivals in sunglasses and hats scrambled to slather on sunscreen whilst juggling bubble tea. Hoots and cheers from the youngies and kids playing spike-ball echoed around the apartment complexes. Rusty, Pastor Chris’s dog, was bonkers with excitement. The air was filled with a special buzz as the picnickers introduced themselves to a young man, newly spirit-filled that week. Onlookers curiously asked who we were......

Dunedin Shines The Light

We’ve just concluded a truly inspiring weekend of fellowship in our most southern assembly in the South Island of New Zealand. The skies were blue; the coffee was flowing; the choruses sung at “break-neck” speed; the ministry was focussed and direct. What’s not to like? After the long Covid hiatus that brought us all to two dimensional “screen” fellowship, it was great to be back at the coal face sharing testimonies and not having to struggle to hear each other through our masks. It actually was great to see people’s faces again!......

Melbourne Youngies Fancy Dress

Last Saturday was the annual 21st Fancy Dress at The Box. The theme was TV COMEDY. After 2 years of this event being unable to be held, it was extra special to be able gather together to celebrate.

There were set ups for Friends, Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Seinfeld and even a Bluey themed jumping castle. People turned up......

Melbourne Convention 'The Peace of God'

The Melbourne assembly hosts the Revival Centres Church Conference biannually and this year’s theme was ‘The Peace of God’. The conference runs over the Queen’s Birthday weekend and is attended by our Victorian, interstate and international assemblies. The visitors came in droves to rejoice and be edified by presentations, songs and the communion of saints. Melbourne, known for having four seasons in one day, decided to put on only one type of weather display this weekend, rain. With plenty of layers, hot beverages and enthusiastic singing of songs the weather did not......

Sawtell Easter Camp NSW

The Coffs Harbour assembly hosted the Sawtell Easter Camp with the theme ‘Making a Difference’. We were treated to ministry straight from the scriptures with speakers from across Australia; even as far as Canada. There was encouragement to make a difference in our assembly, looking after each other (Mark 12v29-31) and preaching the Gospel in season and out of season (2 Timothy 4v2). The gospel music was pumping with choruses and plenty of items, praising God and encouraging everyone at the meetings. Camp was a great opportunity to fellowship during and after......

Personal Story: Francis

My name is Francis Khembo, I am from Malawi Africa. I was born in 1985 in a family of seven children. I was brought up in a Catholic church because that’s where my parents used to fellowship in those days; at this time, I didn’t know anything about the Lord. But when I was 17 years old, I met one of the pastors from Chirimba Revival Centre’s church who talked to me about Jesus Christ and receiving the power of the Holy Spirit with the sign of speaking in tongues. It was......

Personal Story: Carl

I used to be of the opinion that religious people were weak and insipid. My own philosophy was to enjoy all that life had to offer without thinking too much about the consequences. In time my attitudes began to change, and I started to take an interest in the Bible and its message of salvation through Jesus Christ. I began to visit a multitude of church denominations, asking questions and seeking advice on how to live the Christian life, but realised after about a year that living a Christian life was an......

Personal Story: Avril

During my childhood I lived in a village in Hampshire, UK and attended a local denominational church. I always believed in God and as a child living in the countryside, it seemed logical that such a beautiful creation had to have a creator. I remember very clearly my confirmation and being bitterly disappointed when the Bishop anointed me with the oil and said, “Receive ye the Holy Spirit” and nothing happened. Many years later I was married with two young children and living in Australia. I was still searching for answers and......

Personal Story: Matt

I went to Sunday school, like kids do. Learned about Bible characters – Adam & Eve, Noah, David & Goliath, Jesus. I had no idea what was going on, but they were nice, fun stories. That’s all they were though… stories. Stories that were stuck in the pages of a book that I struggled to bring to life in my imagination. As I grew older I started to pick up on people’s general cynicism towards religion. People who had had powerless encounters with an unknown and distant God – a God who......
