ARISE Conference is a gathering point for the church of New Zealand and beyond.

ARISE Conference is three conferences in one with ARISE Conference for adults, Get Smart for high-schoolers and Glow Kids for all children from 0-12years.

Starting out in 2003 as a church camp with the aim of building family and seeking God; it quickly became so integral to the life and culture of the church, a key annual festival moment. The event continued to grow exponentially – and within years Wellington's camp grounds could no longer contain the expanding congregation. This was the start of ARISE Conference!

It has grown since its inception in 2008 to become a national gathering of the churches of New Zealand; a place for pastors, leaders, and Christians to display our unity, be inspired by a corporate gathering and be equipped to better serve in and grow their local churches. The heart behind ARISE Conference has – and always will be about building the kingdom of God.
