Welcome to the 2022 Assembly

We gather to “equip the saints for the work of service,” not for maximum productivity, but for the sake of renewal and encouragement to continue the work of ministry.

The 2022 Assembly will provide space for reflection and learning in the areas of:

  • Classic Church - Church Becoming
  • Vital Right Shaped Ministry
  • Towards an Inclusive Church
  • Excellence in Leadership
  • Growing Generosity

We will gather for worship and fellowship to grieve the losses of these past two years and to celebrate one another in the Spirit that has kept us moving!

“Oh, I love to hear the song of creation,
The wind and the rhythm of the rain,
Oh, the thunder it speaks of your power,
But there’s something in the sound of the saints!”

COVID Protocol

As part of registration, all assembly participants will be required to upload proof of "up-to-date" vaccinations and boosters as appropriate for the individual's age. Other COVID protocols will be determined closer to the event.
