The AFES National Training Event brings together students from right across Australia. Five awesome days in Canberra praising God, digging into his Word, and training to serve Him.
The Bible is God’s word so we want to hear him speak.
That’s why every week during semester 80-100 of us gather in a lecture theatre to hear God’s word proclaimed. We’d love you to join us.
We have two times you can choose from:
1pm Tuesdays in Social Science Lecture Theatre
or 1pm Thursdays in Austin Lecture Theatre
I am what I do.
I am what I say I am.
Mid Semester Break
Deuteronomy 12-26 (Part 1)
Deuteronomy 12-26 (Part 2)
Every week groups of 8-10 students meet to read the Bible, think about it’s implications, and pray.
Small Groups are a great way to grow in your knowledge and love of God and of other students.
1pm Mondays (starting week 2 of semester 2, Location: TBD)
Ministry Essentials (weeks 2-6): “exploring the critical questions around Christian ministry – what it is, what we are trying to achieve, how we go about it. The answers are essential for all ministry, whether leading youth group, playing music, evangelism, or doing the sound.”
Answering Common Questions (weeks 7-12): How do we respond to some of the big questions and objections that are often raised against Christianity? In these sessions we’ll be looking at some of the most common objections and equipping you to not only respond thoughtfully, but also use it as an opportunity to point to Jesus and share the gospel.
Choose from a range of courses designed to equip you to serve Jesus more effectively.
Some electives may involve a one off fee to cover the cost of the training material.
Know & Share the Gospel ($15)
If you had 60 seconds to explain the gospel to a non-Christian friend at the drop of a hat, would you know what to say? This elective will give you the confidence of knowing the gospel deeply and being able to explain it to others clearly.
Small Group Leader Training ($15)
This elective will train you to be able to write a Bible study for yourself and start developing the skill to lead a small group of people through it.
Life After Uni (free)
The transition from uni life to full-time work is full of big challenges and opportunities. What does it look like to navigate them well as a Christian? If you’re close to graduating, this elective is for you!
Following Up a New Christian (free)
My friend has decided to put their trust in Jesus – praise God! But now what? This elective will help you figure it out (will probably also be helpful if you feel like a new Christian yourself!).
