Mr Brewer is the Surch Conference Coordinator for the Bridgewater Church. Curious locals may have noticed that the carpark and surrounding grounds of the Baptist Church on Myall Street was turned into a wall-to-wall, fence-to-fence campsite over the recent school holidays. ‘’Young people, predominantly from Sydney and other areas of the State gathered together to develop and explore areas of understanding God, Jesus, spirituality, daily faith, personal and leadership development,” Mr Brewar said. “For some of the kids it is their first opportunity for a holiday at the beach, so it’s wonderful that we have the facilities here to cater to their youth conventions,” Caroline Thornthwaite, Secretary of the Baptist Church told News Of The Area. “The Surch camps make a huge impression on the young people and teach life skills that some would probably not be exposed to otherwise,” Caroline added. “We love the reception we get from the locals with the butcher, bakery, local mechanics and definitely ice cream shops all very helpful and patient with the young people we bring into town,” Roger Brewer said. “Thanks Tea Gardens, you are awesome!” By Margie TIERNEY HOLIDAY CAMPSITE: Baptist Church in Tea Gardens.
