THEME: ‘Building the Momentum”
GUEST SPEAKER: Tim Burns, pastor of Mortdale-Oatley Baptist church in Sydney who will be sharing 4 messages from the book of Nehemiah. In Tim’s words, “I have a slight connection with WEC” - explanation … his grandparents, Charles and Lily Searle worked with C.T.Studd in the Congo in 1928 and subsequently established ‘The Elms’, a home for WEC MK’s in the UK. That’s quite some connection, we think!
VENUE: Yarabah Conference and Camp Centre: 30 Nentoura Rd Morisset, NSW 2264.
DATES: We will be commencing our conference with an evening meal on Wednesday the 19th April and concluding by lunch time on Monday 24th April. There will be programmed sessions right up until lunch time, finishing with communion together. We ask that, as you make travel arrangements, you plan on leaving Morisset from lunch time on the 24th when everyone will be supplied with a packed lunch at the conclusion of conference.
You are encouraged to book flights home from 5pm onwards the day conference concludes. This should allow sufficient time to travel by train from the conference to Sydney airport.
If you’re an active Australia-based WECer - member, associate member or short-termer - this is your annual opportunity to engage with your colleagues in a way which offers mutual encouragement and strengthening, sharpens focus and reinvigorates for the task. We know that, for some of you, there will be particular circumstances which prevent attendance. Be sure that you will be missed. (Please drop us a note if you can’t be with us.) To the rest: we look forward to catching up with you.
As usual, the invitation is also to a broader guest list, including retirees and resignees, those on LOA, support group members, candidates, current volunteers and Trekkers. So, if you know of any who fit these ‘titles’, please pass on the invitation with the necessary link to the registration form.
Cost: $100 for meals and accommodation, from Wednesday’s evening meal to Monday’s breakfast, or $20 per night/day for high school age and up; $50, or $10 per night/day for primary school age.
It is preferred that you pay by direct deposit to WEC International, BSB 034-060, A/C no. 152167, reference - your last name + auscon.
