I got back today from Together at Westpoint, a regional newfrontiers camping weekend featuring Bible teaching, worship and kids’ work. We had teaching from Guy Miller and Dave Stroud, with Chris Kilby finishing off with a gospel appeal. Probably my favourite talk from the week was Dave Stroud on Noah and the life of faith.
For me, one of the most exciting things about these weekends is hearing what is happening in the region and around the world with church planting. It is great to see that churches in their early stages last year are now becoming established and more plants are planned for the coming year.
Our church only had a small group this year, but we were very blessed to be camped right next to the incredibly warm and hospitable Family Church Christchurch, who more or less adopted us as their own for the week, and we went on a day trip to Exmouth with them the day after the conference ended (you could pay to stay two extra nights).
Worship was led by Matt Giles and the inimitable Evan Rogers, who once again had us all dancing and doing silly actions. I’ll leave you with a video to give a taste of the event…
Dave Bish has a report on the conference too.
