2017 Easter Camp Gospel of Luke

At Easter Camp this year, keep an eye out for Bible Society’s new Easter Camp Gospel of Luke (NLT) designed especially for us. Perfect for a Term 2 follow-up to Easter Camp, the Gospel will feature an 8 week discussion guide for youth groups, chapter summaries to help you understand what you’ve just read and pause reflection sections to help you pause and hear God when reading it.

This Gospel has been created especially to help youth hear from God and learn to follow Jesus, so ask your leader to pick up copies for your youth group.

Youth Gathering Leipzig 2017, ‘Meet the World’.

Are you aged 18-25? Would you be interested in meeting with young people from around the globe?

The World Communion of Reformed Church is holding their General Assembly in Germany in June, and there is a youth gathering prior. This will involve Christian young adults from throughout the world sharing in worship and key issues affecting us globally.

  • Social transformation: Social justice
  • Global challenges: Climate change
  • Models of change: Post-Growth movements
  • Spirituality: Praying and Bible study
  • Methods: Lectures, debates, panel discussions

People interested in representing PCANZ are invited to register their interest by contacting Gordon Fitch gordon@pym.org.nz

PCANZ will cover the cost of the youth gathering which includes programme, meals and accommodation. (Maximum of two from PCANZ will be accepted).

International travel will be at the participants expense (churches will be encouraged to fundraise to support them). It will be an amazing experience well worth the investment.

PYM Internship, Accepting applications for 2017

Beginning the journey into youth ministry as a vocational calling is an exciting, rewarding, and challenging adventure. Our church desperately needs theologically trained, skilled, youth workers who are committed to professional development and who see their ministry in vocational terms. It is our hope and prayer that the Bachelor of Ministry (Bmin) PYM Internship will see a new wave and generation of such youth workers and ministers taking up positions of leadership in our church.

The Sound Fuse

View poster

The Sound Fuse summer camp is a clashing of faith, music and culture. It is designed to capture the feeling of a music festival, but with the “we’re in it together” focus of a missional task-force. It is a micro-microFestival. (That’s a new phrase.)

It is aimed at senior high-school students who want to make a difference in the world, who have a bent for creative expression, and who love (or are curious about) God. During this week together, we are looking to create those moments of deep connection where music + people + place all combine into something unique and meaningful… and we’ll be using the powerful creative capabilities of music and words to help lead us there. The questions we’re looking to answer is, how do I become the kind of person the world needs more of? and, how can I do that with style? 😉

Location: Tirohanga Camp, Dunedin, NZ

Dates: 17th-21st January, 2017

Cost: $350pp.

Age: 15+

ABOUT PRAY FOR OUR PACIFIC

Pray for our Pacific is non-denominational and open to interpretation. Therefore each church community has an opportunity to Pray for our Pacific in whatever way best reflects their community and capacity. These are some examples:

  • Dedication of a prayer during your sabbath service.
  • Dedication of your church service to #PrayForOurPacific
  • Youth-lead #PrayForOurPacific activities
  • A #PrayForOurPacific prayer circle
  • Sharing stories from relevant scriptures with Sunday school children
  • Sharing local stories of climate impacts
  • Remembrance service dedicated to lives lost during climate change disasters
  • #PrayForOurPacific church rally which includes all of the above!

Your event can be as big or as small as you like. What is important is that your church owns your event and you know that you will be joined by our brothers and sisters throughout the Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. Possibly beyond!

It’s important that we as a people use our faith to empower ourselves and this movement. We aren’t looking to our faith as a way to solve the issue of climate change, but we are looking to our faith to find the strength to continue the fight to protect the planet that was gifted to us. Not a planet that we have dominion over, but a planet we are stewards of.
