Through the lens of COVID, political changes, environmental concerns, culture changes, local needs and the many other contextual realities of our time and place, we are going to explore some important questions:
- What is the point of preaching?
- Is the art of preaching dead?
- Can preaching change anything?
Preachfest! Australia is an inaugural event that has taken its cues from The Festival of Homiletics in the US and the Preaching Festival in the UK, which are week-long conference designed to inspire discourse about preaching, worship, and society.
Preachfest! will give you the opportunity to hear other gifted preachers and teachers, to network and share resources. For preachers, the opportunity to be encouraged and inspired is invaluable. This event will provide a great opportunity for you to refine your art of preaching, fine-tune your ability to proclaim God’s Good News in your context, and, be inspired and challenged by the array of teachers, leaders, and preachers, in person (Sydney and Canberra) and online and other interactive portals.
There will be a hub hosted by Fran Barber at the Centre for Theology and Ministry (Melbourne, VIC). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend.
