Freshwater Creek Christmas Camp

Freshwater Creek Retreat was abuzz this year with regular campers and visitors from far and wide.  Attendees travelled from Adelaide, Mudgee, Newcastle, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba to enjoy fun and fellowship as well as Victoria’s unpredictable weather. The theme for camp was “Doers of the Word”, based on the verse in James 1:22.  We heard some fantastic talks encouraging us to step out and put into action the words and thoughts that were shared.  By the enthusiasm of the listeners, 2024 looks like being a great year! There were also plenty of......

Newcastle Glenrock Christmas Camp

In an electrifying week at the 2023 Newcastle camp, attendees experienced a rollercoaster of emotions, transcending beyond the usual spiritual activities. The theme for the camp was ‘One thing is needful’ Luke 10:42 (KJV) But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. The Price is Precise on Wednesday left participants scratching their heads, as the cleverly crafted questions stumped even the most knowledgeable minds, turning the evening into a hilarious spectacle of wild guesses and laughter. Thursday’s Variety Night turned......

Melbourne Youngies Formal

On Saturday, the Melbourne Youngies Formal of 2023 was held at the Mornington Racecourse, an event that celebrates the achievements of Youngies throughout the year and acts as a send-off for the group while wearing their smartest attire and getting to eat some fancy cuisine. The event was also supported by parents of Youngies, Pastors, Elders, and general members of the Revival Centres Church. During the night, ‘The Shield of Faith’ was awarded to the Youngies team who won the most events in 2023, with the team of ‘Samson’ just beating ‘Gideon’......

Hobart Outback Fancy Dress

Cooee! G’day readers! On Saturday night, the Tassie saints threw on the flannies, chucked on their Blundstones, entered through the rainforest, and headed to the Great Aussie Outback. As you may have guessed… the night was ‘Aussie’ themed. We decked out the hall with handmade decorations, reflecting the diverse landscapes of Australia. Hosted by the Hobart church, saints also travelled from Ulverstone and Launceston for a night full of socialising with likeminded individuals, food, and activities. It was encouraging to have some new people visit and see for themselves how the Holy......

Young Revivalists (VIC) Senior Camp

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......

Melbourne Youngies Fancy Dress

Games & God; two things we can all get behind. Over the Saturday (09/09/2023), the lovely community of Revival Centres was able to get together and celebrate the 21 years of life that more of our wonderful young people have achieved. We were able to celebrate young Christians who in their very smiles showed how genuinely happy God had made them in the personal stories they shared. A big shout-out to all the helpers and behind-the-scenes people who were there throughout the week leading up to. It was all paint splatters, cardboard-cutting......

Arise Youth Summit

Allow me to begin with a question: are the young people of Revival Centres ready to support the future of the church? The Arise Summit (9th–12th Jun), held in Melbourne, was, in short, the first international summit for young people within RCC, in four years! Under the determined work of the whole youngies team, and in unison with the older members of the church, what has transpired over the past four days was nothing short of extraordinary. The last time I wrote was the ‘23 Freshie Launch Camp, and the fruits of......

Melbourne Youngies ‘23 Launch Camp

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......

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......
