1-4 JULY 2024

Exciting Days

Join with us as we gather in a genuinely intergenerational event to prayerfully seek to build the future of Australasian Anglicanism, and humbly reflect upon how Jesus is building his church. 

Our all-age, all-stage gatherings will give us a taste of the future of Anglican ministry and will focus on the promise and fulfilment of Christ as he builds his church, and includes us in his future plans.

Join us in
Brisbane for the 2024 Gafcon Australasia Conference

Join us for 2024

The Anglican Church globally is at a crossroads. The church needs renewal and reformation, and we need to move beyond division and confusion. What should the future look like?

 

The Bible needs to be at the heart of every Anglican church. If you share that conviction, you are not alone!  Join with hundreds of other like-minded Anglicans from across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific who understand the need to hold firm to the Bible as the heart of our faith.

 

Many of us are in places where the pressure to compromise is high, fellowship is hard to find, and speaking the truth is costly.

Under God the Anglican Church has a bright future: God is doing great things among us!! It’s time to pave the way for a new generation of leaders who are confident, passionate, and unwavering in their belief that God’s word is good, clear, and powerful.

 

This is why we’ve created a conference for all ages and stages, where children and youth can gather in specially-designed, intergenerational services, as well as participate in a unique, ‘Future Leaders’ program — and for all under-18’s, the registration is free!
 

Join us at Riverlife Baptist Church, Brisbane, for a conference that’s not just about reform —it’s about building a movement that renews the church and its witness.

 

Join Anglicans of all generations to explore how Christ is building the future

Our all-age, all-stage gatherings will give us a taste of the future of Anglican ministry, and will focus on the promise and fulfilment of Christ as he builds his church, and includes us in his future plans.

Building Up and Building Out: One

WITH MARK EARNGEY and the FUTURE LEADERS TEAM

In his first lecture, Mark Earngey will unpack the teaching of the Anglican formularies about building ‘up’—how we are to rightly understand maturity and discipleship in the life of our church and faith.

Future Leaders (Under 18’s Program): One

Mike Dicker

Mike is the Principal of Youthworks College where he trains people for Anglican youth, children’s, and family ministry. Since the Kigali conference he has been working with several African dioceses to help develop intergenerational and youth-specific ministries and training. Mike will be preaching to us from four foundational Old Testament passages that demonstrate how God’s purposes of building are fulfilled in Christ’s promise to build his church. He will help us better understand our place in God’s cosmic plans.

Mark Earngey

Mark is the Head of Church History at Moore Theological College, and an international authority in Anglican theology and practice. He will be delivering two lectures that explore the Anglican Doctrine of Edification — how our foundational documents understand building ‘up,’ (maturity and discipleship), and building ‘out,’ (mission and evangelism,) based on the seminal verses of Ephesians 4:11-13.
