The Gathering is an event for young adults to grow in their faith and impact their life in a significant way, while growing a community where they can connect and build meaningful relationships. At The Gathering we try to provide a relaxed environment to be refreshed and inspired for the year ahead while nurturing a culture that will call you forward into a deeper and richer understanding of your faith and life.

This year our theme is Live it Loud and we're going to discover a story worth sharing!

Our exciting guest speaker:
Julie-Anne Laird will help us explore how evangelism is something that everyone is equipped for and called to do. That the message of Jesus still has the power to change lives. You will be inspired, equipped and sent out to be bold with the Good News of Jesus Christ in your life and with your words.

Julie-anne lives in Melbourne and has worked for the Christian Union for 17 years, focusing on reaching the university campus with the Good News, helping students explain their faith and encouraging them to live faithful, outward looking lives. She currently serves as university chaplain at Melbourne Uni. She is the Victorian Co-ordinator for Arrow Leadership Australia, and last year, helped launch the e-Network, to encourage young evangelists to use and develop their gifts. 

As always, the sessions faciliated by Julie-Anne will be accompanied by a relaxed program, some of the best (free!) barista-brewed coffee around, fantastic food, the forming of deep friendships, and a chance to have a whole lot of fun as well.

Don't miss this chance to be inspired and to grow your faith with an amazing bunch of young adults! We look forward to seeing you there!

What Young Adults say about The Gathering

Without it I wouldn't be where I am now. I don't want to imagine what life would be like if id never been to the gathering and become apart of a loving church community that I could thrive in and grow to give back what I've received.

The Gathering has given me new vigour for my life to go back out there spiritually refreshed and ready to take on the bigger challenges

The Gathering was a great place to connect in with other Christians who were facing similar issues in their life. It was a place to get real and dig deep

It's given me hope again in people. There are amazingly beautiful Christian people out there. It’s also opened my eyes and made me appreciate Christ on a whole new level

The Gathering has impacted my life by giving me another aspect of my faith to build on. Also I just love how flexible the weekend was!
