Pastors and wives retreat
Every year pastors and their wives from our fellowships in ACT and NSW have a weekend together at Links House in Bowral to compare notes, share the blessings, and for mutual encouragement.Every year pastors and their wives from our fellowships in ACT and NSW have a weekend together at Links House in Bowral to compare notes, share the blessings, and for mutual encouragement.
This year we were joined by Pastor Chris & Christine Kernahan and Pastor Jock & Hellen Duncan from Adelaide and Pastor Bill & Annie Allen from the Sunshine Coast.
On Saturday morning, after breakfast together in the sunny dining room facing the golf links, there was lots of good discussion about our individual assemblies, topical issues, website and social media update, music ministry, growth overseas, leadership opportunities, as well as encouragement to take good care of ourselves and our families so that we can serve the Lord and care for the flock well.
At night we enjoyed a fun dinner night, seventies themed, with music from a talented ensemble, some discussion afterwards on the importance of maintaining a happy marriage and holding onto our joy in difficult times, and on Sunday morning Pastor Peter Moore gave a great talk.
That’s just a brief outline, but its enough to say we all look forward so much to this opportunity to talk things over and share the love of the Lord with those who have gladly taken on the care of those that Jesus died for.
