Christian Alliance Conference

Christian Alliance Conference

North East Arnhem


Mission Aviation Fellowship, working alongside the NRCC and Nungalinya College, took on the responsibility to organise a conference ‘to gather all Christian organisations who are concerned to see God’s Kingdom advanced in Arnhem Land.’

A total of 15 organisations, represented by 56 people, gathered together at Nungalinya College in Darwin for a two-day conference over the 6th-7th of April.

The conference provided a fantastic opportunity to listen and learn from each organisation, and to hear from Aboriginal people about their needs and hopes for their country and people. The theme of the conference was that of ‘Unity’. True unity only happens when our Christian walk together is not based on our dissonant theologies, but rather on our identity in Christ and our mission to love God, love the church, and love the lost. Craig Fulton said, “We valued the alliance conference as a chance to reflect upon who is out there and what part we play in the body of believers in Arnhem Land...  We want to explore ways of developing a culture of unity amongst Christians in Arnhem Land.”

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one. I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

John 17:20-23
