As 2016 draws to a close, I reflect on what an amazing year we had at CHARGE. It is such a privilege spending time to get to know the youth who come along on a Friday night and Sunday morning. In the first semester, we journeyed through the book of Philippians, and explored the meaning of life in our Youth Alpha series. In the second semester, we explored how the Old Testament points to Jesus and finished the year off learning how to have Courage. Our annual camp was spent at the Bunya Mountains this year. It was an amazing weekend hanging out with each other and learning how we can have faith to move mountains. We finished the year off with our appreciation night for those who support CHARGE during the year. I am constantly blown away by the generosity of the people of St Bart's in supporting our young people. There is so much more in store for 2017, as we have a bigger and better year planned. So thankyou to those who are partnering in sharing the Gospel with our young people and I look forward to this growing in the new year. Have a blessed Christmas and safe and happy new year.
