Ministry Leaders’ Family Camp is being held at Forrest Lakes Otaki from 3pm Sunday 16 – 3pm Tuesday 18 July. The theme this year is “being sent!” Racheal Sangster from Unlimited Children’s Ministry is running our 5-10 year olds programme which focuses on us all being created for a unique purpose.

We are looking for some small group leaders to help with games, small group activities & discussions. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with an amazing team and impact the lives of these young people.
