In just over a week, more than 100 young people will come together from all over Queensland at The Gathering 2018. This year, we’re calling young people to live The Brave Way of following Jesus in an increasingly difficult environment. The call of Jesus is to live a life boldly transformed by his grace and love.
We are excited to announce that registrations have been extended for The Gathering!
You now have until Sunday Jan 28 to register for this incredible event, so head along to www.lyq.org.au/gathering to book your place today!
The Gathering is a great opportunity for anyone who has just graduated year 12 to come and meet new people, and explore a new community for them to connect into for this post-school phase of life. This weekend is full of opportunities to connect with others through the laid-back atmosphere, barista-made coffee in the lounge, or an afternoon relaxing and hanging out by the pool.
This year we are replacing our theme dinner with a unique time of prayer and worship, as we explore how God is wanting to grow each of us. We are really excited for the change that God wants to bring into each person’s life.
Our guest speaker, Pastor Matt Thiele, will be talking about discipleship and following Jesus within a strong secular culture. What he has to share with us will be insightful, challenging and refreshing; while giving practical steps to live as a disciple of Jesus.
We are really excited for the weekend God has for us and can’t wait to get started! If you have any questions or want to chat about last-minute registration, please contact me on 0413 515 069 or via email tom.schmidt [at] lyq.org.au.
What Young Adults say about The Gathering
Without it I wouldn't be where I am now. I don't want to imagine what life would be like if id never been to the gathering and become apart of a loving church community that I could thrive in and grow to give back what I've received.
The Gathering has given me new vigour for my life to go back out there spiritually refreshed and ready to take on the bigger challenges
The Gathering was a great place to connect in with other Christians who were facing similar issues in their life. It was a place to get real and dig deep
It's given me hope again in people. There are amazingly beautiful Christian people out there. It’s also opened my eyes and made me appreciate Christ on a whole new level
The Gathering has impacted my life by giving me another aspect of my faith to build on. Also I just love how flexible the weekend was!
