Exchanging Ideas for Changing Lives

June 1st, 1-6pm at St Anne’s Anglican Centre, Ryde, NSW

Exchange is more than just a conference, it is a forum for people who want to reach people and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We want to inspire, train and equip each other for sharing the greatest news in the world, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Exchange is unlike other conferences as it will not be a place just to hear information, but a dynamic forum of ideas for evangelism, mission and church planting. Your ideas and input will make Exchange better for everyone attending, so come along and be prepared for a conference that makes a difference.

Ever had that feeling that you have been energised or excited by a ministry conference, only to find when you talk about it with others in your team that they are not on the same page as you, because they didn't hear the whole thing? Exchange is on a Saturday so that it is accessible not just to ministry staff, but their teams as well, so we can all be on board with a vision to try out some ideas for evangelism.

Paid ministry staff or not, we believe great ideas for telling people about Jesus can be had by any Christian.

Exchange is about reaching people with the message of Jesus. We want to prepare and equip you for the work of evangelism and church planting as these two things need to be working together to reach the whole of Sydney for the Gospel of Jesus.





Registrations are now open, you can order tickets here.

$35.00 Regular Ticket

Don't be shy...

We may end up with too many ideas to use them all. If we choose to not use your idea, please do not take it personally, we have a specific criteria we are looking for and a limited number of slots.
