2021 Mission Trips
This year, King's coordinated three Mission Trips to Chinchilla, Saint George and Rockhampton during the September school holidays, where our 78 compassionate team members served in remote Queensland communities and modelled the love of Jesus in such a powerful way.
CHINCHILLA MISSION TRIP REPORT
Our group of 26 students and six staff travelled to Chinchilla for an incredible six days. During our trip, we worked with the students and staff at Chinchilla Christian College and our motto was to ‘embrace the uncomfortable’ and our devotions' theme was ‘who you say I am.' The students all stepped up to the challenges of the week and staff from Chinchilla Christian College were blown away with the way they modelled Christ. Our group of students all have a close bond, they are hungry to know more of God and this made our devotions together at night so powerful. Our students ran a chapel service for the High School students from Chincilla, a community-building youth event on Friday night and a praise and worship night on Sunday for the wider community. Following our visit, the Principal of Chinchilla Christian College has decided to employ a full-time chaplain for next year!
As staff members on the trip, we all had so much fun hanging with our team and running community events at night. It was so encouraging to see how each team member stepped up to God’s calling during this mission trip. Every one of us was blessed and encouraged by the Chinchilla students' warmth and hospitality towards us. We thank God for allowing this trip to happen despite COVID restrictions, mask mandates and possible lockdowns. I would encourage every King's High School student to go on a mission trip - it is an awesome and life-changing experience!

Thank you to every student and staff member who gave up part of their school break to put God first. We are blessed to have a College that facilitates these trips and encourages students to take part in many mission-based activities like these, so our community can serve others in such a practical and life-changing way.
