FUSE together for fun and faith

Our churches
From 4-8 July, 220 campers and leaders descended on Mt. Tamborine to come together and experience being part of something greater than themselves and express their faith.

FUSE is our high school youth camp for students in Grades 7-12. The combined event included 14 of our Church of Christ youth groups and 3 from other churches right across Queensland who came together to be a part of what we are doing.

Senior Pastor Lachie Ashworth said the annual event was investing in the next generation of young leaders.

“FUSE Camp creates a fun and welcoming space for our youth ministries to come together and be part of something greater than ourselves, to be part of a community that is investing in and discipling our next generation of young leaders in our churches,” Lachie said.  

“FUSE Camp is about understanding things bigger than ourselves, and learning how to take ownership of our own faith.”

Over the week, the attendees enjoyed participating in epic Tribal Wars, worship sessions, night rallies, and a huge game of Laser Skirmish. There was also a big bonfire, and a themed game show night where everyone dressed up as their favourite movie character. There was also plenty of free time, with the FUSE Cafe, sports and games available for the young people to enjoy while they hung out with their friends, and built relationships with new ones.

FUSE camp provides an experience for the youth from our churches and movement to come together and share in their faith.

“For our churches, who may not have the resources or capacity to run a week-long camp, or to even facilitate a weekly youth group, it allows their youth to be part of a life-changing week,” Lachie said.

“The camp also plays a key role in building a greater sense of community, thus building our movement through the young people.

“Which is important, as they are our next generation of leaders."

“At the heart of FUSE is discipleship, which is important because we get the opportunity over the week to empower and equip our young people to take ownership of their own faith, practically and spiritually, so that they can then do so in their everyday life - at  their school, work and church.”
