And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”  Romans 10:15

Welcome to the website for this year’s Ministry Leaders’ Family Camp.  The camp is for Vicars, Priests in Charge, Assistant Priests, as well one key leader from each ministry in each parish or mission unit, and their families and spouses.

This year’s camp:

Being sent is about being equipped to spread God’s Good News to those around us who desperately need it.  As local faith communities, there is much we can do to support and send each other into our unique spheres of influence to love, and to care for the last, the lost and the least.

This year’s Ministry Leaders’ Family Camp is for our key leaders across the Diocese, and is for a time of renewal, inspiration and connection, as we reflect on being “Sent People.”

A koha towards the cost of this family camp would be greatly appreciated.  As an example, the cost of accommodation and food for an adult (over 13 years old) for the camp is about $130, whereas a child (from 5 to 12 years old) is approximately $100.  However we want all key leaders to attend, so whatever you are able to contribute will be perfect.
