Fresh Hope Collective 2020
November 10 @ 9:30 am - November 14 @ 12:00 pm$20 – $50
Fresh Hope Collective goes on Tour!
This year’s Collective will adjust and expand into regional gatherings, Fresh Hope Executive Ministry Director Andrew Ball has announced. He said the decision was made to maximise safety while also creating much-needed face-to-face connection in the Fresh Hope network.
“We are keen to make a way for as many leaders as possible to have the chance to gather; to be encouraged and positioned for this season, which would be compromised if we ran with our usual single-site gathering,” he said. “This option gives us the opportunity to bring together the most people, within the safety guidelines.”
Mission & Ministry Director John Crowther said the regional locations gave momentum to the connections which have been strengthened during COVID-19 restrictions. “Over the past six months, we have been gathering as regional communities online. We hope gathering in regional locations will enable those who have been encouraging one another virtually, to be able to deepen those connections in person and continue to share the journey together.”
Regional locations in NSW and ACT will host one-day gatherings which will include pre-recorded keynote sessions, and interactive discussions and local “tasters”, featuring regional ministries.
“It is important that we continue to position ourselves for the future and together to adapt and innovate as a movement of churches and leaders – our theme for this year “fulcrum” has heightened meaning now as we continue to leverage the hope of the gospel – its beauty, compassion and truth – for our neighbourhoods and communities.”
What to Expect
Collective is a space for pastors and leaders from across our movement in NSW and the ACT. It’s a space to create, dream, grow and connect with others in ministry in our movement. And although it will look a little different this year, our adapted regional format will still create spaces for connection, learning and dreaming in a smaller and safer way. Moving Collective into 3 regional spaces (plus an online option) means that most participants will be able to attend at a venue closer to their home (see locations and dates below).
A regional format does mean that accommodation is not available. However, if you are attending the Friday gathering at The Tops and wish to stay overnight for the AGM on Saturday, please click here to book: https://tops.venueregistrations.net/collective-guest-stay. Please note that there is limited availability.
