Over the last few years the New Horizons, SENT and Cross-Cultural Ministry Conferences, together with associated training events and resources, have started to shape local congregations and their leaders so that they are feeling more supported for local mission. This has been accompanied by formal and informal learning networks, including those in the intersection between cross-cultural ministry and local (congregation-based) church planting.

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.

With this in mind, in the future we plan to hold this event in 2021, New Horizons is a collaboration between Cross-Cultural Ministry and New and Renewing Churches. The conference will aim to:

  • build capacity for meaningful cross-cultural engagement at the local (congregational) level, and
  • shape and support congregations and leaderships for multi-ethnic/cross-cultural mission and ministry.

Please keep checking this web page as we roll out the registrations for New Horizons across Australia and New Zealand.

PAST EVENTS.

New Horizons 2019

New Horizons 2019 was a blessing to many. The theme for 2019 was much needed and coincided with the release of a new book and associated video resources by Noel Due and Steen Olsen, called Spirit Filled: Normal Christian Living. The focus was on missional leadership with particular reference to the person and work of the Spirit.

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.
