We are excited to be expanding ARISE Conference into the South Island. It is with great anticipation that we invite you to join us in Christchurch on July 16–18 for the first time. ARISE Conference 2019 will be held in the newly refurbished Christchurch Town Hall, the city’s premiere performing arts and civic facility, allowing us to host the whole conference experience, for all ages, in one complex.
ARISE Conference will be offering exclusive accommodation deals and discounts to our delegates by providing easy and accessible parking options in close proximity to Christchurch Town Hall, as well as exclusive discounted meal deals from cafes and restaurants across the Christchurch CDB at every price point.
The main sessions are filled with life changing messages from international guest speakers, this is where your mountain-top moments happen, where Heaven meets Earth and where miracles take place.
Get Smart is the youth conference of ARISE Conference. It has, and always will be, for the Youth of New Zealand. This is a time for thousands of teenagers from across New Zealand to gather, hear from God, have fun and return to their towns and cities fired up to see revival. The dream and vision of Get Smart is for a new generation to receive a visitation from the Holy Spirit; to stir up a passion to push past the status quo and live a life that count!
We are so excited that in 2019 Get Smart will be multiplying to the North and South Islands – this is going to make the reach of what God wants to do greater, and will result in many more young people knowing about Jesus. The weekend includes four Get Smart sessions specifically for teenagers, featuring dance items, guest speakers, and tribal wars! As well as this your registration includes five ARISE Conference main sessions.
Glow kids conference is a place where children gather and meet Jesus, make new friends and have tonnes of fun. We are believing to empower kids for their right now and their future. They are learning to love Jesus and pursue him from the start of their lives and dream big dreams. The heart of Glow is for kids to understand they are part of the Church of New Zealand and God has a plan for every child and family in this nation.
1 to 11 year old’s gather in our kids environments for praise and worship, messages and all the extras; games, breakouts and time to hang out with their friends. Alongside Glow we run an amazing stream for Intermediate age students with life changing sessions and a bunker to hang in.
