Summer Refresh 2019

The best ‘kickstart’ for your heart as you walk into the New Year.

We all know how it feels to “just survive” the crazyness of the Christmas season only to realise that the new year is upon you. We have found for us the best way to jump into the New Year is by jumping into God’s word. Summer refresh is a family camp with a kids program and afternoon activities. Let you spirit be refreshed and your heart re-aligned by solid teaching, friendly community and beautiful surroundings. We are committed to bringing in speakers from around the world who through the Lord will deepen your understanding of God’s word and your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be refreshed in Christ as a family.

Charles Price was the Senior Pastor of The Peoples Church in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from 2001-2015, with a congregation of 4000+ people. He had a weekly hour-long television programme, Living Truth, which was broadcast coast to coast in Canada each week, as well as in the U.S.A, United Kingdom, Europe, India, Australia, New Zealand, Guyana, South Korea and Japan. He also had a daily 30 minute radio program which is broadcast in the U.S.A. and Canada.

On leaving school he farmed for two years in Zimbabwe before returning to England to attend Capernwray Bible School for one year. He then spent three years at the Bible Training Institute in Glasgow, Scotland. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree by Tyndale University in Toronto in 2004.

Charles was a field representative of the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship of Torchbearers, based at Capernwray Hall, Lancashire, England.

    Signs to True Spiritual Life (from the Miracles of John’s gospel)
    Presented by Charles Price

    Jesus miracles are described as “signs” in John’s gospel. A sign is a pointer to something else. John explains:  ‘…these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name’ (John 20:31). It is the nature of that life we are to receive, which his physical miracles demonstrate.

    From Vision to Victory (Message from Ezekiel)

    Secrets of True Spiritual Life (from the Parables in Luke’s gospel)

Senior BreakFree 2019

Christian Camp for kids in year 7 to year 12

Theme: The Great Escape

Teens are our future, and our camp is the best foundation for their faith and life. We aren’t shy about the fact that this is all for Jesus and we don’t apologise that the gospel’s all through camp, but whoever said the Christian life isn’t a whole lot of fun? BreakFree Senior is for any teenager who wants to either discover or deepen their faith while hanging out with their mates and meeting new friends. We have recruited the best directors, brought in the craziest ‘clowns’ and wrangle the most gifted leaders in Australia (and abroad) just for BreakFree. Senior camp is always a blast and should be a staple for the youth of the Highlands & abroad.

Don’t let your teens miss out on the party!
