Convergence Camp is the gathering of the top of the south Anglicans at Bethany Park in Kaiteriteri. It’s a chance to start the year with celebration and unity. There’s something really special about gathering as the wider Nelson Anglican whanau. Coming out of your own place and being part of something bigger to be uplifted, encouraged and equipped as God’s people.
It’s a great way to kick the year off with people from our own faith community and it’s great fun. It’s also a really good time of refreshment, spending time in such a beautiful place. All ages are welcome at Convergence Camp, we have families, the more ‘mature’ among us and lots of young people. It’s just one big whanau.
Sam Harvey from Bay Vineyard Napier is our speaker this year.
Sam and his wife Jen are originally from Wellington and they met when Jen was studying at Bible College and Sam was co-pastoring a church there. They now have three busy, handsome boys – Eli, Judah and Asher.
Sam graduated from Bible College of New Zealand (now Laidlaw) in 2003 with a Bachelor of Ministries majoring in Spiritual Formation. He’s been in full-time ministry since 2003, and as well as leading churches throughout that time he has been involved in leading Soul Survivor and Youth Alpha in New Zealand. In Christchurch he was part of the senior leadership team at Grace Vineyard Church, where he led the Worship ministry and pastored the Beach Campus.
This year the theme is We are all in this together where we will explore topics from 1 Corinthians 12. We’ll be looking at Unity and Diversity in the Body of Christ, Spiritual Gifts and how Love is Indispensable. There will be times of worship before each talk and prayer / ministry after, as the spirit leads.
