Natasha Moore Public Christianity in a polarised world

Christianity is inevitably a public faith. If the gospel is true, then Christians have something crucial to contribute to the common good - in art, media, politics, science, education, local communities - whether the broader culture is welcoming, indifferent, or hostile.

In an increasingly polarised public square, where defensiveness and contempt are common reactions to those different from ourselves, what do Christians have to offer? From personal relationships to workplaces to social media, this session advocates for a posture of generous confidence, and unpacks some tools for engaging positively with our culture, and influencing it for the better.

Being a Fruitful Christian

My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit ...   John 15:8

How can we make our days count for our King and His Kingdom?  God is at work, wherever He puts us – our workplaces and businesses, the school gate, the gym, our community.  He does use each of us for His purposes in the ordinary things of our everyday.  There are so many ways to 'bear much fruit'.  He May be using you already and you haven’t realised or given thanks for it.

In this encouraging workshop, expand your sights on His command  to "Go into all the world ..." and what it means to love and serve Jesus by loving and serving those he has put right where you are

Daniel Sih Hope Groups - a simple way to make disciples in a pandemic
Click for workshop description

Almost all Christians have a desire to share their faith with others, but don't know how to start. A Hope Group provides a simple framework to help everyday Christians to give hope, help and spiritual guidance to their unchurched friends at "such a time as this" (Esther 4:14).

We show people how to meet in small groups, online, to discuss the parables of Jesus in a relational way. We say what we're thankful for, share a personal challenge, read a scripture of hope from the life of Jesus, make a plan to help others, and pray. Simple.

These groups originated in Tasmania in March 2020. Since then, we have started groups in Vic, NSW, Qld, SA and WA, as well as globally. As part of this training, we will share inspiring stories of Christians who are reading the bible with their secular friends, and training them in the habits of discipleship.
