The Anglican Future Conference 2018 will be one of the major events for orthodox Anglicans in 2018. We come together to encourage one another in a Biblical and Christ-centred faith and to consider the future of the Anglican Church in Australia. Speakers and seminar leaders from around Australia as well as international speakers will encourage us to persevere in the face of opposition from secular media, business organisations and liberal theologians from within and to help us understand better the culture of 21st century Australia.

Along with the conference we are organising network meetings to encourage leaders with similar interests and areas of ministry to meet and share ideas, strategies and encouragement.

Keynote Speakers:

Rev Frog Orr-Ewing, Rector of Latimer Minster, as well as Chaplain and Missioner for the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics;

Dr Wesley Hill, (PhD, University of Durham) assistant professor of biblical studies at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania;

Dr Justine Toh is Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Public Christianity.
