The Conf

EFAC stands for the “Evangelical Fellowship of the Anglican Communion.” I could write about EFAC more, but I won’t.

This conference was about connecting a bunch of younger EFAC members & encouraging us to think about leadership, evangelism, and the future of the church. It wasn’t on the official agenda, but one of the other core areas of focus was how many different places we could caffeinate ourselves over a couple of days.

I didn’t take too many pictures during the actual conference time. I was too busy taking notes, but I did manage to take at least one picture of the wonderful food we ate. This was eating out at Spiga.

We also visited Ridley College. I’ve never been there & love, love LOVE the mural!

So… Sunday night till Tuesday afternoon was lectures (including a book launch for Tim Foster’s “the Suburban captivity of the Church), group work, and some networking. I’d bought my tickets for the return flight long before I knew what the programme was, so I had figured on a 5pm finish. Rather than being upset, I knew this meant I’d have an afternoon to trawl the lane ways before I went home! I got up extra  early on the Tuesday to get a little time in. Here’s some of the stuff I saw.

So…. having survived an awesome conference, one of the better ones I have been to, all that was left for me to do was an 8pm flight back home, a train ride back to the coast, then a loving wife who picked me up from the station with sleeping kids in tow!

It certainly was a hoot!

I think that will be my last conference in a while. But there is another EFAC national conference next year. Something to aim for!
