High school-aged Lutherans and their friends will gather at an internet ‘camp’ this winter school holidays. Organised by the LCA SA–NT District’s Blueprint Ministries, the camp.online program has been developed in response to COVID-19.
Members of two LCA congregations have added their voices to the Australian version of ecumenical internet music video The Blessing. More than 300 churches, worship leaders, artists and Christian ministry groups from around the nation took part in the project, which premiered on YouTube on 7 June.
