COVID 19 has shown us that life can be unpredictable. How do we cope when we realise we are not in control of everything? What does the Christian faith have to teach us about ‘The Way’ living a life of faith with a God that is both mysterious and personal?
This year at camp we will have time for conversation, reflection, worshipping together, skill sharing, telling our stories and quite a few things that may remain unknown. Everyone welcome.
How do we touch, smell, see, hear and taste God in our lives? How does sensing God with us, affect and change our living? How do the Christian scriptures guide us to connect into God’s Presence? We will practice the contemplative and creative arts of sensing the Divine with other families over the long weekend (6-9) March. Everyone welcome.

A small group have been meeting for the last month to practice slowing down, noticing and being more present and then sharing how we’re going. We’ve now finished as a group but you can do them anytime. Details here.
As a result of sharing with each other, we’ve decided to do a nightly prayer practice for the next month – anyone is welcome to join us, email me (Cath) and I’ll include you in the sharing.
Now that we are an official faith community, people have the opportunity to be baptised into our community if they would like to. For some of our young people family camp is their primary faith community. If this is something you/ your young person might be interested in, we are looking to run a retreat at Philip Island with Rev. Ian David. Let me (Cath) know if there’s interest.
On November 9 Bradon is running an event for UCA young people aged 16-21called Amplify.Uniting Faith and Families can send four delegates – please let me know if your young person is interested.More info – h
Hello! If you’re reading this, you probably have some connection with what’s been known as the Uniting Church Victas Synod Social Justice Family Camp.
We are a group of people who’ve come together for the past 7 years because we have kids, and we want them to have a community experience with other people who treasure our Uniting Church focus on questions of
and a faith that embraces an evolving understanding of who God is and who God is calling us to become.
What you’ll find here are our thoughts, ideas and reflections on what we think might be God calling us to deepen our relationships and formalise our community within the Uniting Church.
We cannot be a “local” congregation because we come from all over the state/country/world. So how can we “belong together” if we aren’t physically together all the time?
This is what we are wanting to explore. The idea of a faith community that exists in many places is not new – think religious orders, or “patrol padres”. But it’s a new way for us.
If you haven’t been involved in Family camp before but this whole idea is lighting little fires of attraction and curiosity, well, come along! Join our email list or come to a gathering, let’s keep in touch and see what happens.
