Our third and final conference for 2021 was held in September with over 50 delegates joining the online event. Visit Cross-Cultural Ministry’s events page to view our video resources from this conference series.

The aim of New and Renewing Churches has been to assist in forming healthy, mission shaped, multiplying and sending congregations. Increasingly we are seeing that these must also be multi-ethnic.

New Horizons Online Conference

11 September 2021

Wow what a turn out for our New Horizons online conference held on Saturday 11 September 2021. We would like to thank all those who attended!


New Horizons 2021

Our conferences and events are intended to help us catch a vision for God’s plan for the church, take steps in becoming more welcoming, and receive inspiration and ideas from local churches that are unfolding God’s glorious vision in practical ways.

Recently we held our third and final conference for 2021 in September with over 50 delegates joining the online event. This was a joint conference from the New and Renewing Churches and Cross-Cultural Ministry departments which aimed to provide support to leaders and congregations as they respond to new opportunities for mission and ministry. It also assisted in building the capacity of LCANZ members to meaningfully engage with people of other cultural backgrounds.

SENT Conference 2019

SENT conferences bring together pastors, congregational members, church planters and others keen to explore the nature of evangelism, church planting and missional leadership in the LCA/NZ. SENT 2019 focused on the mission of the church, with particular reference to the person and work of the Spirit. This theme tied in with the release of the book and associated video resources by Noel Due and Steen Olsen called Spirit Filled: Normal Christian Living. SENT was offered in Adelaide and Brisbane in 2019.
