Conference: Anglican Future Conference 2015

  • Melbourne City Convention Centre (map)

What is the future of the Anglican Church?

EFAC AUSTRALIA and FCA AUSTRALIA brought together this conference in March 2015 to discuss challenges facing the Anglican Church of Australasia. Rapid Social Change, a growing secular agenda and confusion about how to address these changes and issues present the church with an uncertain future. The conference addressed being 'on mission' in the 21st Century and contending "for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints" (Jude 3). Each Morning we were led in a  Bible study of God's word by Kanishka Raffel, Dr Ashley Null led us in studies of a Reformation Anglican view of Salvation, Scripture and Grace and keynote session leaders Peter Jensen, Tracy Lauersen, Stephen Hale and Peter Adam addressed our missionary context, the global Anglican community, current critical issues and the Church's future. Each afternoon, a broad range of workshops explored keynote sessions in practical ways and offered opportunities for dialogue together around the issues.
