Retreat – Camp Clayton October 21-27, 2013 “The Psalms”
We are holding our annual retreat/festival at Camp Clayton, Claytons Rd, Bass Highway, just east of Ulverstone, starting at 3:30pm on Monday October 21st, and concluding Sunday October 27th at lunch time.
This year we have chosen the challenge of exploring the Psalms.
We plan to take an overview of their nature and how we can read and benefit from their profound and authentic approach to life, God, good and evil; life at its best and its worst. We will then explore some specific psalms and invited participants who would like to, to share their favourite psalm, and to have a go and writing a psalm themselves.
So why not join us for a week of rest, inspiration, fellowship, and time wandering through, wondering at, and learning from the Psalms. Come for a morning, a couple of days or better still, the whole week. This is a great opportunity for those on their own to find friends and encouragement, and for couples to have a time of retreat and rejuvenation.
Sessions are held each morning at 9:30am in Parkdown, except Thursday, when we have a 7:15pm session. Saturday has morning and afternoon sessions. Cost are very reasonable.

We are a people from diverse backgrounds but we have a shared goal – to love God with all our hearts and minds, and to live lives that are pleasing to Him in service to others, through the strength that He alone provides. We’d love to share that journey with you.
Christians are exhorted to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). The Spirit of God leads the church into all truth (John 16:13). Accordingly, our statement of beliefs is not a closed creed. GCI constantly renews its commitment to truth and deeper understanding and seeks to respond to God’s guidance in its beliefs and practices.
Statement of Beleifs
"We will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grow and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."
Through Spirit-led, life-giving relationships, our 30,000 members in about 550 churches spread across 70 countries seek to multiply mature followers of Jesus throughout the world. We pursue this disciple-making mission grounded in the identity, beliefs and values described below.
