The First Victorian cohort met together last weekend for the beginning of a journey that will see our churches growing young… together.

Fourteen churches from Victoria, three from South Australia and Albury Church were represented by 120 delegates at the Australian Union Conference seminar room for the Growing Together Summit.  A similar group representing churches from NNSW, Greater Sydney and SNSW conferences met in Sydney and the keynote presentations were streamed from there.  The North American Division Growing Young Coordinator, Dr Allan Martin, attended Melbourne’s venue and participated in workshops.

This journey will see the cohort continuing to work on the Growing Together program with their local churches, and meet again in October, where they will share how their churches have progressed following this summit.

Already more churches are asking how they can be involved.

Growing Together is not a one-off Program.  It is a transformational plan that will see our churches undertake a journey of cultural change, growing stronger together.
