Stream facilitators and guest speakers.

Friday during the day, the various streams will meet to share, eat, and wrestle with a few missional questions together. These streams will be facilitated by 1-2 people in various locations – some might meet in a relevant place i.e. creatives in an art gallery or marginalised in an inner city location, etc. This time is meant to fuel relationships between like minded people, give time to press into missional questions, and come to the wider Saturday gathering with more ideas and thoughts fleshed out.


Friday dinner is an optional (and additional cost) gathering. It will be hosted by 1-2 people to create community, share a meal, laugh, and simply be together.


All day Saturday will be a mixture of short talks, a panel, round table discussions, networking time and more. There will be reflective time as well to help us all process, discern, and be mindful of what God is speaking to us. The day will end before dinner time.
