Once again we are taking a group of Yr 12 students away for a week at Nelson Bay. This year we have eighteen students joining us from 24th November – 1st December!
We stay in a luxury three bedroom townhouses in Nelson Bay. The townhouses come fully equipped and there is also a swimming pool, spa and tennis court.
Josh Maule will be leading us through a series of studies from Ephesians. We seek to help our year 12 students be better equipped to negotiate the transition from high school to young adulthood in the world. Knowing God’s purpose for us and how he has made us alive with Christ provides a solid foundation to respond to the challenges of life that will be faced in the years ahead. Ephesians is filled with theological content as well as practical application.
There are many activities on offer in Nelson Bay including … go karts…sand–boarding… bowling (lawn and 10 pin)… a marine cruise with snorkelling… surf beaches… sea kayaking… camel riding… a quad bike tour… swimming with sharks and sting rays… cinema… and more.
Of course there will also be plenty of time for relaxing… sleeping in… board games… watching movies… sitting by the pool… etc.
We love it when the members of one townhouse invite others over for some hospitality. Each year we invite members of our church to bake some biscuits or a slice that can be shared. This both enables the students to entertain others during the week and provides an opportunity for those who would like to support XII Escape in a practical way.
If you would like to help in this way, please bring any food to the church office from Wed 21st-Fri 23rd November. PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY NUT PRODUCTS and PLEASE label what you have made with the ingredients as we have a few students with intolerance to some food products (anaphylaxis and gluten).
We value your prayers for
– safety travelling to and from Nelson Bay and during the week.
– the Bible study material.
– good relationships during the week.
– students to return committed to God’s agenda for their lives.
