Neighbourhood Engagement

Inspire Conference in 2022

Inspire SA is the perfect place to gain encouragement, discernment, and connections with like-minded thinkers who are exploring mission in their local neighbourhoods. It will undoubtedly be full of people who are eager to serve and represent Jesus in their context.

This year, we have invited Geoff Maddock to lead our conversations and inspire us as we serve Jesus in creative and courageous ways in our local area.

We’ll also hear from Elliot Keane and Mark Sanders who serve our movement of churches to inspire, encourage and coach church planting, revitalisation and new missional initiatives.

We’re excited to share stories from across our movement, be encouraged together, have inspired conversations, and enjoy great food and coffee.

25 - 26th October

Tuesday, from 6pm
Wednesday, 9am – 4pm

Here’s what people thought of last year

Loved putting my head in a different space, out of the weekly cycle, and thinking more broadly. It was great to meet other church leaders and hear what’s happening in their world

Incredibly fruitful and insightful conversations
