Event description


The Fellowship of Evangelical Churches of Australia invites you to come and join with Christian leaders from around Australia as we foster a gospel movement in our country. Enjoy fellowship, worship and pray together as we explore God's word and participate in the life of the the network. We are especially excited to be welcoming new Churches into the network this year, and look forward to seeing new faces as well as old.

We will be heading to Brisbane and will be hosted by Disciples Church Springfield. The location gives us a great opportunity to be close together for a few days, with the Church, a hotel, and the venue for the annual dinner being within walking distance of each other. See map.

The Conference will include:

  • Plenary sessions from a great line-up of speakers
  • Breakout sessions on practical areas of ministry life
  • Time to spend in worship, prayer, and fellowship with each other.
  • Annual General Meeting
  • Annual Dinner


The Springfield Lakes Hotel is a short walk from Disciples Church. We encourage all interstate delegates to stay here during the conference, as being close by and together will greatly enhance the experience.

The hotel has provided a 10% discount for all conference delegates. Use the code BLVD when booking online or speak directly to the staff if booking over the phone.
