Upcoming Camps, Trips and Meetings
We have a number of regular and one-off events coming up in the year ahead.
Details are listed below and will be added to or updated as needed.
New Zealand Annual Camps: It is proposed to continue with plans to run our annual camps here in New Zealand, January 2021, providing the country stays at alert level 1.
January 12 to 17, 2021 - Rotorua, New Zealand — Just finished.
January 21 to 24, 2021 - Christchurch, New Zealand — About to happen, come join us!
At this stage, we will not be bringing any overseas speakers in, as there are restrictions at our borders which is time consuming and expensive. We are working with our local people and we have a good selection of speakers to share and encourage. The speakers are featured below and we are very much looking forward to the messages each will present.
Doug Hurley: will be taking some of the meetings during both camps. He has been in the message for 36 years, and right from the beginning, he and Angela, along with all their family, have had a love and passion for ministry, both to live the message and to share it.
Damon Hurley: well known among us, Damon will be looking after the morning worships for the North camp. From memory, Damon has never missed a camp in the 32 years we have been involved in the self-supporting work. He will be attending with his wife Cherie and their three children. (Speaking in Nth Island only)
Reg Peterson: from Kaitaia is well versed in our message, has a definite passion for evangelism and outreach. He is married to Rachel and has two girls and works in the area of support and aid for intellectually challenged people. (Speaking in Nth Island only)
Clayton Mbofana: is originally from Zimbabwe, found the message here in New Zealand and now works as a lay pastor for Waitac Church in Massey, Auckland. He also has a real burden for supporting his flock and reaching out to the community. He is married to Bernie and they have a family.
George Opiyo: is from Kenya, but has been in New Zealand for four years of study in chemistry. He completed those studies early last year and right at this point is graduating having achieved his PhD. He is married to Nasarine and while he has applied himself to his studies in chemistry, he also has a love and passion for the Bible and our message.
The camp is planned to run as usual with meals, children and youth classes, and the usual range of books and media.
The situation in our country is unstable at present. While we are planning to continue with the camps as always in the past, if the country goes back into alert level 2, we will have to cancel the physical camp, but will bring speakers to our studio and live stream the messages. Yes, we will miss the fellowship together, but at least the spiritual messages will still be available to view and feed the heart.
While New Zealand is relatively free of this virus, our borders remain very restricted for international travel. All the Australian Sabbaths and camps have been postponed until borders are relaxed and freedom to travel can commence again. We don’t know if, when, or how this will happen. We will just wait and recommence our plans as soon as able. Contact the below phone numbers in your area for any discussion on these.
