Church Camp - 13-15 August

The Church Camp and staff teams have met today to make a final decision re. Church Camp.

Unfortunately... we're having to make the call to postpone again...

We are committed to running this camp (!), however due to the ongoing and everchanging complexities around social distancing and other COVID restrictions are just unable to run it at the moment. Specifically:

  • The current 1 person per 4sqm rule means we can only fit 30 people in any given room at Adare, including for meals - whilst there is the chance that this may change prior to camp, there is also the chance it may not and this would not be fun
  • The ongoing uncertainties re. interstate travel (Tim Piesse hails from Melbourne)
  • Also, the church is booked for a wedding Sat 15 Aug so a modified program back home is not possible for that weekend
We are so sorry to all those who were looking forward to this great opportunity to get away and gather as a church community in a different place around some great teaching from Tim Piesse, however we feel that all things considered this is the best decision given the current situation.

  • Will we ever run this camp?
    • Yes! We are so keen to gather together in this way and Tim has promised to move heaven and earth to be here for the new date, however like the rest of society are finding that COVID is throwing up all sorts of obstacles...!
  • What if I've already paid?
    • Thank you so much for your contribution towards the Staff Team pizza oven... what was that Sue? Oh... apparently we're going to refund you all in full... Sue asks for a few days' grace while she manages everything that's been thrown up in the air by this. She'll get onto it as soon as she can.
  • Do we have a new date?
    • Not yet, no, however it is unlikely to be this year. Hopefully we will be in a different position as a nation in relation to COVID next year and will be able to plan with more certainty.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding and we are so sorry for all the inconvenience and disappointment!
