about solid rock community climbing centre
We’re Climbing the Walls at Kingscliff! Literally! No really, literally! Our senior pastor, David Asscherick, has been an avid rock climber since he was a teenager. Not long after moving to Kingscliff, he realised that there was a shortage of good places to go climbing in Northern New South Wales, and the Gold Coast. While discussing this with friends from church, on a trip to Brisbane to go climbing, they hatched a plan to convert a storage property in Tweed into a community climbing wall. Other people in the church jumped on board the idea, and construction was underway in no time.
Solid Rock Community Climbing Centre opened a year ago, and has been wildly successful! We welcome everyone from young, old, climber, non-climber, fitness fanatics, families, locals, and travelers just passing through. Every Tuesday and Thursday we have community climbing nights and the place is usually packed. David, and other passionate church members, are taking the message of Jesus Christ, the True Rock, to our community through Solid Rock Community Climbing Centre. Druen Dorn has recently started introductory Bible studies with a group of about 12 community members, and ARISE students have been showing up in numbers and making great connections too.
We’ve got plans for movie screenings, climbing competitions, climbing games, trips to outdoor climbing areas, and much more on the horizon. We see this ministry as primarily a seed-sowing ministry, where we are unapologetically Christian in our approach, but we’re not “in your face” with religion. Our agenda is simple: to provide a positive place in our community where people of all stripes can connect with one another, with our local church family, and, hopefully, even with God.
Why don’t you come down and make some new friends of your own? Invite a friend or two. Or, if you’d like have a gathering or party of your own there, contact us and we’ll get it arranged. Solid Rock is all about community and connection.
The address is Unit 2/41 Corporation Circuit, Tweed Heads South, NSW. Come climb the walls with us!
