2020 Celebrations/Festivals

Come and join this annual celebration of our salvation in Jesus Christ as we focus on how we live out the grace of God.  

Caloundra, QLD (September 20-23, 2020)

We will be planning our annual “Celebrating Life Together” again in Caloundra this year. The dates will be from Sunday, 20th Sept to Wednesday, 23rd Sept. As there is some uncertainty on the numbers this year, we will hold our meetings in the CCSA Hall, Nutley St, Caloundra.

A schedule of service times and activities will be available as we get closer to the date, depending on what COVID-19 restrictions are in place by that time. Registration details will be available closer to that time.

This year our focus is on Paul the Apostle, his life and teachings. Apart from Jesus, Paul is the outstanding character of the New Testament. And it was Jesus who became the total focus of his life. How did this fiercely militant and religious Jew, self-described as a Pharisee of the Pharisees–who brutally persecuted Jesus’ work and people–become its chief champion, selfless servant and passionate proponent? Join us in this time of re-acquaintance and discovery, as well as time for worship, fellowship, food and rejuvenation.  We also plan a full day of sightseeing.   We start late Monday 2nd, and conclude with lunch on Sunday 8th.

Please let others know who might be interested in sharing this time with us.  Covid-19 regulations are followed by our host and by us for the Retreat. Full meals and accommodation with ensuites are available onsite.  You have just a few metres walk from your room to the meeting and lounge area.  Attendees will be notified as soon as possible if our plans need to be altered due to any change in government directives.  Please keep up to date with travel restrictions between Tasmania and your location.   If you normally attend another site that is cancelled or downsized, this may be an ideal year for you to come to Tasmania.  You will find a warm welcome awaiting.  

For registration forms and information, please contact Geoff Miller at  millergd1@bigpond.com or Phillip Hopwood at phil.hopwood@gci.org.au, phone 0407566987 or visit our website at https://hobart.gci.org.au
