Over the recent Easter break i had the opportunity to get along to my first National Gathering for CS Aus hosted this year by the Vic crew down at Phillip Island. I’d heard a lot of good things, but still being relatively new to the CS scene, was keen to find out for myself what the big event was all about. I wasn’t let down! Things kicked off on a high on the Thursday as I arrived at camp and Tommie Pipella (CS Vic) and i reconnected and zipped over to Flyns for a super fun session with a handful of the CS crew. But it just got better with amazing workship led by Lucasand Ash B, some great times of fellowship and in particular being able to hear how God was using CS right around the county to reach surfers. The big take-home was of course being challenged to “Own it” by Mark “jono” Johnstone as he encouraged us and me on a personal level to be bold in sharing the gospel back home here in Tassie. All in all a great event and one that’s left me pumped for the year ahead and seeing God work through our local hub.
