Whitefields Conference: Glorious Rhythms

There's A Sound - Can You Hear It?

Glorious Rhythms

There's a sound, can you hear it?

"As soon as you hear THE RHYTHM in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you..."2 Samuel 5:24

There's a sound - a rhythm - a beat from heaven that's ready to lead you onto a new path-, a new adventure and a new direction.

It's the sound of wisdom calling. It's the sound of the future calling. It's the sound of your future victory calling you to get ready. For God is going out before you, beating a way where there was no way and inviting you to move to the rhythm.


The Whitefields Conference will be like a portable charger. It will refill you with so much energy and life, it will hard to switch yourself off. With our two fabulously gifted speakers from Australia - James Macpherson and James Murray, as well as the presenter of Cbeebies' Swashbuckle, Gemma Hunt for our Whitefields Kids, we're set up for what will be our best Whitefields Conference ever. It's our national family conference for everyone in every location of Hope City Church, as well as a whole lot of friends across the nation.

"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." - Isaiah 43:18-19

God is doing a new thing - new direction, new ideas, new possibilities and new opportunities. And we want you to be a part of it all.

We've cut the prices down so everyone can come and we've got some special surprises in store. You'll not want to miss a beat!

James Macpherson

James Macpherson


One of our first speakers at This New Republic, James went down a storm with his 'Professor Brian Cox' style of communication. He's seen Calvary Church grow to become on of the largest multi-site churches in Australia.

James is intelligent, provocative, discerning and wise - all with a pastor's heart and soul.

The faith life is like a game of chess. What you need right now is wisdom and more wisdom. And we're going to bring to you someone who holds treasures of wisdom to help you live both successfully and influentially as a single person, in marriage, in family, in your career, in the community and even across the nations.

If you could chose between still and fizzy, a lot of us would chose fizzy - so we've done the same. James was a huge hit at our TNR conference a few years back, and this year he is coming back the effervescence back into your life.

He'll refocus you to make the main thing the main thing, relieve you from life's big pressures, and revive you with wisdom, power and a healing dose of laughter.

Everyone needs a cheeky brother; everyone needs a cheeky son. Either way, James' ministry will be like medicine to the soul.
