South Australian students connect virtually for retreat

Last Saturday, St Martins Vetamorphus students joined via Zoom with other students from around South Australia to hear from key speakers and do practical activities to do with Mission. Students were able to gather in virtual small groups to hear about a variety of topics including church planting, worship, health, cross-cultural ministries, sports chaplaincy and ministry in the margins of society. In spite
of the distance, students were once again able to connect with other students who share the same passion for their faith, and be encouraged to live out their faith in mission.

One highlight of the day was to participate in a Prayer Walk, where we walked around the College, praying for the staff, students and families that make up the St Martins Community, stopping at key
locations along the way.

This was the 3rd and final retreat for our Vetamorphus students, so they were also able to reflect on their journey over the year; a journey that has had many challenges as they tried to complete the requirements of the Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology, and also much growth over the year as they strived to “Be transformed” through the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

The retreat finished with a combined service and a blessing for the students as they go out into the world with the light of Christ.
