A group of 17 pastors and elders gathered from around Northern NSW for the inaugural Regional Connect earlier this year.

The 24-hour retreat offered a time of encouragement and connection. Hosted by Mark and Vicki Keogh and members of the Mission & Ministry team, leaders travelled from Port Macquarie Forster-Tuncurry and Coffs Harbour in the north to Maitland and the Central Coast in the south. It is hoped that more such regional events will be held in the future.
