Next Trip: November 21st - 27th, 2010.

Sanctuary Surfers have an adventure trip to Coffs Harbour, Byron Bay and surrounding beaches with many sightseeing/adventure/surfing stops on the way. The trips include whitewater rafting, horse riding, mountain climbing, camping, paragliding and abseiling depending on what you like to do - pick and choose your activity (bookings are limited for each activity and some may not be available for all people). If you have special activities that you would like to do, let us know because we may be able to include them in our trip. Accommodation is B&B style in male and female dormatories/tents. Travelling from Adelaide, costs start at $895 and will increase depending on what activities you want to do, so contact us for an exact amount. If you are being picked up on the way (either in Victoria or NSW), costs are lower. If you are travelling down from Queensland or live near Coffs Harbour, you pay for just the activities you participate in. Limited seats are available, so bookings are essential.

Next Trip: January 21st - 27th, 2010.

Surf Cam for Coffs Harbour.

Where do we meet?.....Here is a map showing the pickup location. We also pickup at Glenelg and Nourlunga. Day trips are $68 for a two-hour surf lesson, the use of a surfboard/wetsuit and a BBQ. Departure is 7:30am and return is 5:30pm each day. Group bookings are welcome.

When do we leave?.....usually Sunday night at 7:30pm and we travel over night to be at the first surfing spot by Monday mid-day. Pick-up is at our Sanctuary Shop located at 201 Waymouth Street, Adelaide, SA.

Sharing God's Message?....We love having fun, but there is more to life than what we see around us - this is why we are Christians. We can have fun AND have eternal life. God is amazing and when we yield our life to Him, we experience life to the fullest. Click here to find out how to get to heaven. The surfing ministy therefore includes sharing our faith in God in a variety of ways - such as Bible DVD's shown on the in-bus TV whilst travelling, Gospel music being played, Bible studies on the beach and one-on-one discussions about God, the Bible and how to live God's way (....in between catching waves!).

How do we travel?....We have a Mitsubishi Fuso Coach fitted out with TV and DVD player, awesome sound system and we tow a trailer with waterproof, locable canopy and surfboard racks. For legal reasons, it must be stated that transportation in this bus is provided free of charge and is funded by non-obligatory donations to Sanctuary Christian Ministries. We are currently purchasing more wetsuits and 35 surfboards so that we have everything we need to have a good day's surfing (....of course, God provides the waves to surf on). For smaller groups, we use our 4x4 Pathfinder to save on fuel (it also provides transportation for all the surf shop requirements). We are currently purchasing a beach buggy to get out onto the beaches and to use for promotional purposes - it will also tow a jet ski. You can bring your own surfboard on our trips if you are already a surfer.

How to contact us?....Either phone Luke on 0403134478 or Pastor Neil Aitchison on 0410725792, or you can email us if you want more information about this ministry.

"I am debtor both to the Greeks and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel......for I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth""
