St Johns GFS Camden 50th Anniversary

A 50th celebration is always a big event. And GFS Camden put on a fantastic celebration as they marked 50 years of faithful service to girls and young women in their area.
The event was attended by past and current GFS Camden leaders and members, parishioners from St Johns Anglican Camden, many members of GFS Sydney and Sonia Roulston from the GFS Australia National Executive.
The day started with a celebration service, led by Sonia, the chaplain for GFS Australia. The service was a time of thanksgiving as we celebrated God’s faithfulness through Camden GFS. We enjoyed a performance by the teddies of the local branch, a time of reflection from past and current leaders and attendees, and of course the GFS prayer, motto and hymn. A highlight from the service involved the current senior leadership team receiving filigree badges for their service to GFS, combined they have volunteered over 100 years serving their local branch.
We then enjoyed a meal together before enjoying more entertainment, reminiscing over photos, old uniforms and memories. The GFS Camden branch put in lots of effort as they performed, served and shared with us all.
God is faithful, and we are thankful for the work of GFS Camden over the last 50 years.

Place: Different place each month

Come and join in prayer together with us.
Jesus said many things about prayer, which we often don’t fully appreciate. One thing he spoke about is the nature, and implications, of “praying with other Christians”. Jesus said:
“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:18-20
