It’s a chance to start the year with celebration and unity. There’s something really special about gathering as the wider Nelson Anglican family. Coming out of your own place and being part of something bigger to be uplifted, encouraged and equipped as God’s people.
It’s a great way to kick the year off with people from our own faith community and it’s great fun. It’s also a really good time of refreshment, spending time in such a beautiful place. All ages are welcome at camp, we have families, the more ‘mature’ among us and lots of young people. It’s just one big family.
Friday 10 February 2023 – Sunday 12 February 2023
Bethany Park, Kaiteriteri
Our speakers are Charlie and Anita Cleverly who are joining us from Oxford, UK. After leading St Aldate’s church for 18 years they embraced a call from God to support leaders all around the world including us here in New Zealand. Charlie and Anita are passionate about seeing believers pursuing God and his calling on their lives.
We’re excited to have this couple here at Convergence Camp and can’t wait to see how God will use them to speak into the lives of his people here in Aotearoa. They have authored several books, including ‘Faithful Grandparents’, ‘Deep Night, Bright Morning’, ‘The Song of Songs’ and ‘The Discipline of Intimacy’. Their books and their ministry remind us that nobody goes entirely untouched by hurt, grief, or pain but that these times of lament can guide people toward the light and love of Christ. Our responsibility as Christians is to care for one another’s needs. So come to camp for a hug!
