Join us at THE GATHERING: 21-22 OCTOBER 2017

Think about your life, can you picture those places? The people that you know; imagine their faces.

Can you see the school building; the teacher, that desk, the same seat last week, this week and next?

Can you see your family as you walk through the door, sometimes laughing sometimes crying, some days peace, or maybe war?

Can you see your friends; in town or in their homes, or sending snap streaks between their phones?

Can you see your church; the building, the people, sometimes a school hall or under a steeple?

These are the places you live out your days, are you there by chance or on purpose; to see lives changed?


Could it be that God has called you for such a time as this, to bring transformation to the places that you live?

THE GATHERING is our national Limitless youth event, bringing together young people and youth groups from everywhere in the country. It is a powerful weekend of dynamic worship, inspirational speakers, incredible atmosphere and limitless fun! Whether meeting Jesus for the first time, encountering his presence in a powerful way, or being freshly fired-up for Jesus, THE GATHERING exists to create landmark moments.

"Thank you for making this weekend happen and creating an atmosphere where God moved immeasurably! The impact on myself, my leaders and even more so the youth I cannot put into words. They were on fire in church on Sunday and a new young person who attended gave their life to God as a result. We were blown away!"
