KFC Australian Kids Village

by Annemarie Juan (KFC Sydney West)


On the 25th-27th of May 2012, KFC Sydney held their annual AKV (Australia Kids Village) in Merroo Christian Centre in Kurrajong, which is an hour’s drive outside from Sydney. Unlike previous years where attendees were mostly from Sydney, we had KFC’s and ROCK Facilitators from Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Darwin, Brisbane, and Cairns. There were over 90 KFC`s and 70 ROCK Facilitators! The camp was held at the same weekend and venue as the CFC Magnificat Conference. It was an enjoyable weekend for the kids and youth who were involved.

The camp started with a prayer, dancing, and games. It was during this time we learnt the ‘Move’ song, were introduced to other kids and ROCK Facilitators and got to know our cabin mates.

On Saturday, all the kids and ROCK Facilitators were formed into their groups for the workshops. The groups were named after famous international landforms or landmarks like the Opera House, Eiffel Tower, Great Wall of China, and Sydney Harbor Bridge. We did 6 workshops all together (acting, singing, dancing, leadership, rapping, and drawing) that we all enjoyed and learnt something from. When night time came, a Mass was held by Bishop Julian Porteous. After Mass, he had his photo taken with all the kids wearing their MOVE t-shirts. Later in the evening, we watched the MOVE play, which was about the LEAD squad, and how to be a better person.  Some ROCK Facilitators and KFCs were involved as either actors or extras in the skit, and during the play we received light-up candles to use and wave towards the end of the play. The candles looked very beautiful in the crowd.

We enjoyed our last day of the AKV by dancing, learning more about worship and praise, and having another Mass, celebrating Pentecost.

The AKV was definitely an experience to remember. We all had fun, playing, praying, and most importantly, learning more about our God.
