Register for Connect

Planning for Connect 2024 is underway and the dream for Connect 2024 is to connect people involved in kids, youth, families, young adults and SRE ministries to encourage, share stories and shape vision for our local contexts.  Connect is about providing a space to gather with other churches and ministries in your local region, enabling you to partner and collaborate together so that everyone is equipped.  This is a leadership development opportunity that will help you grow personally and in your ministry skills.  Our heart is that our faith communities would welcome all ages – especially children and youth – as fellow disciples, and that all generations would be connected.

What will Connect look like?

Connect is locally led, and each region will shape the day with your local context in mind.  However, there are some common elements that you will see at Connect 2024:

  • Worship, prayer and contemplative experiences
  • Interactive connection opportunities
  • Keynote message from Mark McCrindle of McCrindle Research focused on what makes Gen Alpha and Gen Z tick and what that means for ministry today
  • Workshops for equipping in specific ministry areas (not all workshops will run at every site but everyone who attends will get access to the video and guide for all workshops)
    • Creating spaces for prayer with children in kids, youth and SRE spaces
    • The Games we play – how to plan and lead games that engage children and young people
    • Inviting and answering questions in kids, youth and SRE spaces
  • Facilitated time for connecting in teams or in specific ministry areas across faith communities
  • Life giving conversations over beautiful food.
