The Grace Conference and Adelaide Men’s Convention (AMC) Leadership Teams have been carefully monitoring concerns and advice around Adelaide regarding the need for social distancing to slow down the rate of spread of the COVID-19 virus. After much prayer, discussions with the venue managers, recent changes in Government expectations, and given that there is increased risk of transmission where larger numbers of people gather together, a decision was made that we will not be holding either conference in 2020.
In 2021 we will resume with our conferences – Adelaide Men’s Convention on Saturday 8th May 2021 and Grace Conference on Saturday 29th May 2021. Grace Conference is excited to inform you that both Jenny Salt and Clare Wimble will now join us for Grace in 2021 instead! Our theme of ‘Relentless Love’ in Hosea will just be postponed a year. AMC will confirm the 2021 theme at a later date.
No doubt many of you, like us, are disappointed that we cannot together build up one another around the word of God. But maybe this year instead of gathering, it is a season for us to express what we remind ourselves of about Christian faith, fervent prayer and godly love.
We want to be clear that this decision has not been made out of fear – the Lord of Heaven and earth has secured our life with Him for all eternity through the Lord Jesus’ death and resurrection. Rather, we’ve made this decision out of love and care for the people of Adelaide, and submission to the governing authorities. We want to encourage you to remember that we have a loving and sovereign heavenly Father who cares for us and this world. Let’s continue to cast our cares on Him in prayer and love those around us.
