Join us as we delve into our need to grow in prayer in the face of the building anxiety of our times.
This event is full of fellowship with like-minded families, faith building and inspiring messages, and children programs that not only entertain, but build them up in the Lord.
We are looking forward to great messages from Gabriel Cleator and Pastor Michael Drennan. As well as these messages, we are excited to share messages from the US family conference from impacting speakers like: Caleb Reed, Nathan Johnston, Gill Bates, Eric Ludy, David Gibbs Jnr. Our prayer is that these messages will, by God’s Spirit, enable us to break free from the “rocking chair” of anxiety and on our knees to prayer that drives us forward to victory.
Once again our Pathfinder Program (age 6-12) is being headed up by Jacob Evans and his great team of volunteers. Everybody involved loves their time in this theme based program that uses illustrations to open children’s eyes to spiritual truths. We’re not sure if the children or the leaders enjoy the time more, but both have a fantastic time. So don’t forget to sign your children up, and if your young people 15 and up are interested in joining in as leaders please fill that out as well.
Innovators (ages 13-14) this year is all about the mark that we are aiming for. We aim to challenge young people to think about their goals in life and to see if what they are aiming at is actually where they are called to go. May God use this time together to inspire them to ‘seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.’
Sunbeams (ages 2-5) will be a morning program for children to get their wriggles out and enjoy fun playing with other children. They will be joining in the Pathfinder program during stories, songs and scripture memory and then having open playing time for the rest of the morning. Sign them up for the fun and learning they can experience. They will be with you for the rest of the time, so this is a great opportunity to give them to be active before sitting with you in the sessions.
There are many opportunities for your 15+ year old to be involved. They are welcome to apply to serve in the teams leading Pathfinders, Innovators and Sunbeams, join in with the adult sessions, or serve in the kitchen with Pastor Michael if that is their bent. There will also be some specific student sessions that are chosen to inspire them to follow Christ and be in Prayer. During lunch and dinner there will be the opportunity for them to join in the Choir (ages 13+) and the Orchestra (13+) the music will be sent to you prior to the program, so they can get a head-start on learning the pieces before joining the others in practices which will end in a presentation on the Wednesday at the completion of the event.
For food this year there will be a fellowship BBQ dinner on Sunday night at Haig Rd and then Pastor Michael will be cooking dinners. For breakfast and lunch it is strictly BYO. There are plenty of options close by in Kilsyth South that you can pop out to and get some lunch, or if you prefer you can bring your own. However, there are no cooking facilities available, or fridge space, so please be as self-sufficient as possible.
We do not have many options for accommodation and it is strictly first come first serve, you are welcome to camp at Haig road, but there are only portable bathroom facilities. Please organise your own accommodation if you are able to.
