The Gathering 2018 is a weekend conference for young adults to experience rich community and together encounter the life-changing call of Jesus to follow him. In an environment that is open and free you will discover new friends that are asking similar questions about what it means to follow Jesus in our age. As we explore Jesus’ call to discipleship you will discover the freedom and hope that empowers you to live a life of significance and conviction.
Following Jesus is not a lifestyle choice or a nice idea that makes you feel good. In an increasingly secular culture it is a call to live bravely, proclaiming a new way to be truly alive. Grounded in the transforming grace of Jesus, the call to discipleship means living a life that is marked by different rhythms and priorities which speak to a deeper truth of what it means to be fully human.
At The Gathering 2018 we will explore the life-changing grace of Jesus that gives us freedom to live a life of significance and hope. You will be challenged to step into a brave way of living that is marked by grace, hope and significance for the Kingdom of God.

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!
