  • SNSW Big Camp 2019

Welcome

Big Camp is fast approaching

I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to another camp meeting. In less then a few months we will all meet again at the beautiful Alpine Village in Jindabyne.

The theme for 2019 is: Light – illuminate the world. 

Last camp we focused on connecting with the community and in 2019 we will concentrate on evangelism. We trust that after camp you will be inspired to share the good news with people you come in contact with on a daily basis.

Jesus says in Matthew 5:14+16

“You are the light of the world….let your light so shine before men…that they may glorify your father in heaven.”

Once again, we have a spiritual feast prepared for you. Come and join us at Big Camp 2019 for a time of spiritual renewal, prayer, fellowship, laughter and so much more.

Don’t miss out!! Apply online or fill out the application form inside the magazine.
