Journey Free – Auckland

Sharon Galough Brown author of the ‘Sensible Shoes’ series is coming to NZ

Sharon is a Spiritual Director and Pastor and has written the Sensible Shoes novels, following the spiritual journey of four different women, in a beautiful and profound way that connected with my story, and hundreds of others.

She explores and unpacks spiritual practises that enrich spiritual formation and is bible based in all her teachings. Her heart and love for God comes through strongly in everything she does.

Step aside from the usual routine for a two-day event that invites you to slow down and practice disciplines that help you keep in step with the unhurried rhythm of Jesus.

Come along yourself,  or bring a friend, or come with a lifegroup, bring a journal and choose to lean in.

You can expect: Inspiration words and guided sessions in spiritual practices with Sharon, personal time to reflect, create and respond, time in community with other women in search of going deeper, morning and afternoon teas, as well as lunches on both days… and much more.

Brave Love – Women’s Conference

Brave Love – Women’s Conference

Brave love is a movement that is inspiring women to love with action. Birthed in 2012 in a humble garage gathering in Southern California with about 30 women, motivating them to discover their true calling and live as women knowing that what they have to bring to the world is powerful and effective. 

Brave Love is now being activated across the globe; this coming August 2018, Brave Love will be launched here in New Zealand with the very first Brave Love Conference in our nation. 

We have the Brave Love team from YWAM Kona coming to share this with us & speak into our lives.

Each one of you will leave knowing the message and calling God has on your life.

We encourage you to come with a group of friends or a church group. So you can go home and bring the movement to your own churches and communities.

Brave Love manuals will be available to purchase at the conference.

Engage Conference 2018

Engage Conference 2018

If you want inspiration and equipping for your key leaders and members for their mission – this is it!

What’s unique about this conference?

  • It’s a national conference that is about one topic: Outreach in NZ
  • It covers a wide range of areas of expertise related to outreach
  • And we put NZ practitioners on the stage!

Purpose:

This conference is bringing vision to the table for how we, as the Church in Aotearoa-New Zealand, can better represent ourselves and the message of hope we have with our nation. This is about listening to our own heroes – to learn from practitioners in our own nation about how we could better bless our communities, and bring change!
