Thank you for your support!

Friends, THANK YOU for your amazing support of Camp Pelican and the young people and leaders who attend!

Thanks to your generosity, we raised $8,912 which supported 15 campers and 10 leaders to attend camp! The funds also helped reduce our losses for extra camp expenses incurred by not being able to use Wambiri.

This Summer’s camping program has revealed that it will now cost an extra $15,000 a year to run our camps away from Wambiri. With Wambiri unavailable for at least the 2019/20 and 2020/21 camping seasons, we are once again in need of your support.

Would you please consider  supporting Camp Pelican in 2019 by once again giving to our Sponsor a Camper Campaign? Your donations will help keep Camp Pelican financially viable and keep our camps affordable for all to attend.

For more information on how you can get involved and help sponsor campers for our camps, please visit www.synergy.org.au/support.

If you have further questions, would like more information or if I can assist you in any way, please get in touch.

Thank you so much for partnering with us to create spaces wherechildren and young people can meet Jesus!

Education for Ministry (EfM) at Holy Covenant in 2019

Have you wanted to delve more deeply into the scriptures in a more considered way and in the company of others without having to tackle lengthy theology assignments?

Education for Ministry, commonly known as EfM, has been running in our Diocese for over 30 years and provides a supportive group learning environment for parishes for those who are keen to take their Christian journey to a deeper level by dedicating time in reading, study and discussion with others.

EfM offers an opportunity to take a closer look at the Old and New Testaments and the current theological perspectives on the texts and enables you the freedom to explore, question, gain insights and deepen in your understanding and refine your own position on what theology means for you. Theological reflections allow connections to be drawn between church traditions, especially scripture, and the experiences, beliefs and culture of the group

If you are interested in joining a group at Holy Covenant Jamison, we meet each week on a Thursday evening from 7:30pm for a time of worship, fellowship, reading and discussion and theological reflection.

We will be holding an information evening on Thursday 14 February at 7:30pm in the Worship Centre and we would love to see anyone who is interested in taking the EfM journey join us to hear a little more about what EfM is all about.

Feel free to contact mentors, Merri Bacon from Holy Covenant, 6251 1110 or merri.bacon@bigpond.com and Nich Hills from Christ Church Hawker, 0487 478 767 or nicholashills@bigpond.com for more information.
