What a great way to start the year. The future of our ecclesias in good hands. Looking forward to NewStart 2018
Rob and Rachelle Oosthusien – New Zealand (Speaker)
It was a true blessing to be able to share NewStart together as a family (of eight). If we hadn't, how would any father begin to explain in words an experience like that!!!

NewStart was well organised and it ran smoothly. The children’s program gets a big tick. The talks were excellent.

The atmosphere was electric. A mini kingdom experience
Doug and Cyndy Mogg – Toronto
What a wonderful time we had at Newstart 2017 - a week of fellowship, acceptance, learning from the very varied presenters, musical variety and talent, delicious coffee and food, and above all a pervading spirit of love and service especially from your extremely hard working committee. We saw happy children with wonderful craft works, new friends and an awareness that people of all ages can gather together and have a joyful, fulfilling week. Thank you so much for a very precious start to our new year.
John Pople, San Francisco Peninsula, CA, USA (NewStart 2018 speaker)
NewStart 2018 was a wonderful experience of Bible study and fellowship. The brothers and sisters there were extremely generous in listening to a novel exposition of Solomon’s Song and also helped me by challenging and developing the ideas so that ‘iron could sharpen iron.’ This gathering provides a great vehicle for unity and cross-fertilization of biblical ideas among all the ecclesias in the vicinity. Staying locally in homes fostered a truly family atmosphere for the week, I had the privilege to be with Rob & Leah Crawford, which was extremely relaxing and fun. May God bless NewStart 2019, if our Lord remains away!
