Winter Camp and Youth Representatives for Synod

We had a great time going deeper into the Apostle Paul’s story at Winter Camp. We were struck again by how much God loves us, transforms us and sends us into our neighborhoods. Camps are a wonderful opportunity for us to share life together and build deeper relationships. If you are planning a camp this year, we would love to help with ideas, resources or risk management plans. Winter Camp was also the first time our new BOLD team met, and planning is well under way for their first fundraiser, our Op Shop Ball on Saturday 11 August.
On another note, our two new youth delegates to our Auckland Synod have been approved by Diocesan Council. Tom Day (Church of the Saviour, Blockhouse Bay) and Scott Parekowhai (St Paul’s, Symonds St) will be joining Ethan Fasi-Mohenoa and O’Love Uluave who were appointed last year for a two year term. We will be meeting before Synod to familiarise ourselves with the work of Synod, which runs over 2.5 days on the 6 – 8 September.
