Adelaide Conference

Our communities desperately need to see things made right in all these relationships! Jesus comes to see us reconciled to God, reconciled within ourselves, reconciled to our human family and reconciled to the earth he created. He calls us to follow Him in this as we enter into His kingdom and join Him in Making Things Right. 


SURRENDER Adelaide: Embodying The Way | 13-15 October

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life…Wide is the road to destruction, but narrow is the Way to life.” We are called to follow the Way, but what does it mean for us to live a full and flourishing discipleship? As one body with many different parts how can we fit together to fully embody mission, justice, community, and prayer in our local communities and global world?
