Aaron Parry plays QCCC Tamborine
Queensland Conference and Camping Centres are proud to partner with and promote Aaron Parry and his message in music to teenage groups. A member of staff at QCCC Tamborine, Aaron is able to perform for guest groups at Tamborine, making available his talent to connect with the heart of his generation.
At 17 years of age, Aaron Parry is a rare ambassador inspiring his generation. Aaron’s compelling story of high school bullying, suicide attempts and the rescue of heaven draws his audience towards a message of HOPE.
Throughout the year Aaron performs and shares at high school events, youth groups, public events or recovery facilities for youth. Experiences on the road and practice in serving the visions of others make it easy for Aaron to bring exactly what’s needed at any event. His servant heart and passion, affords dedication and professionalism.
This last weekend (21-23 January 2011) QCCC Tamborine was the venue for a pilot program of the first Fathering Adventures weekend in South East Queensland.
‘Fathering Adventures’, founded by Darren Lewis in July 2008, is an adventure-based initiative devoted to turning the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers.
The Fathering Adventure Weekend is for boys aged between 7 and 13 years, and their Dad, or significant male other. The first South East Queensland Fathering Adventure event was fully booked, attended by twelve fathers and their sons drawn from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Dalby and Sydney.
Throughout the weekend, Dads were given coaching on what it means to be an “intentional” Dad, finishing the weekend armed with a quiver of tools designed to ensure their son would know that he is a “beloved son”. Encouraged to “have fun” throughout the program, the adventure weekend was specifically geared around crating a memorable experience for fathers and sons, empowering them to spend time with each other, one on one, to put into practice the things being taught.
QCCC Tamborine’s new Meeting Centre
QCCC Tamborine will offer a new Meeting Centre facility in 2011 to enhance its growing reputation as a quality provider of affordable retreats, conferences and school camps. With breathtaking views over Brisbane and just a short drive from the Gold Coast, the Meeting Centre will be a welcome addition to QCCC Tamborine’s quality accommodation and catered facilities.
Available from early January 2011 the Meeting Centre is located next to QCCC’s CMS site and enjoys sweeping views off the escarpment over Moreton Bay. The building is set in tranquil garden surrounds and also has a deck to enjoy the view, the trees and the bird life.
Inside the Meeting Centre contains a main meeting/performance area that can hold up to 70 people and several smaller seminar rooms that can contain up to 20 people. This makes the Meeting Centre ideal for a range of applications including conferences and seminars, music and drama camps and school spiritual retreats.
Take a fresh look: QCCC Tamborine
We’re going to start a series on the changes at our three South East Queensland conference and camping sites in recent years.
If you haven’t been to a QCCC site for a few years you’ll likely be surprised by the changes and improvements to each site. Take a Fresh Look will guide you through some of the major developments.
QCCC Tamborine is on top of Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It is located 35 kilometres from the Gold Coast, with the road there twisting up the mountain to an elevation of 500 metres above sea level.
The Tamborine property is at the end of Beacon Road and consists of over 50 acres of breathtaking open space. The Beacon Road property was originally a farm that was given over to a Convention ministry. Over the years one acre blocks were parceled off and various congregations and ministry organisations developed them into sites to complement the main Convention site.
