Creativity is key to a relevant church, and if the first Australia Territorial Creative Arts Camp is anything to go by, then young Salvos have it in bucketloads.

Eighty Gen Z delegates from all over the country recently gathered for the camp at Blampied, just north of Melbourne, and were empowered to transform their communities from the inside out – one song, dance or skit at a time.

With streams ranging from big band, wind ensemble and contemporary band to visual arts, gospel choir, drama and dance, young people were taught how their creativity could be used in personal worship and everyday life. 

“Lots of our young people have gifts in the creative arts. [The camp] gives them the opportunity to express themselves, and for us to champion what they do,” said Ken Waterworth, Territorial Manager of Worship Arts. 

Not to be outdone by the physical arts, minor electives were held in spiritual leadership, social issues facing Salvos today, and youth ministry, just to name a few. 

“This brought together outstanding Salvo leaders from across the country – the very best of what we have to offer,” Ken said.

“We hope this engagement will enhance and develop young people’s gifts so they can take it back to their local faith communities and better serve in them.”
