Luckily you live in NSW and the ACT, which means there is never shortage of events to get involved with. Here is a list of top events and ideas to keep you entertained and also celebrate your faith this summer.
It’s only three more days until this event kicks off and trust me you don’t want to miss it. Yurόra brings together Christian youth to sing, dance and discuss important topics regarding faith. There are workshops on discussing social justice issues and every day challenges from a Christian perspective. There will also be a number of performances including Canadian band Tim Neufeld & the Glory Boys, Newcastle’s Crazy Old Maurice and Brisbane’s Slip on Stereo.
