New Dean of Sydney Kanishka Raffel to speak at Nexus 16 

Christians have always battled with a sense of not belonging. On the one hand, this world is our home because it is the good and beautiful place God created for us. And yet when Peter describes us as ‘exiles’ and as ‘aliens and strangers in the world’, we know immediately what he is talking about.

Perhaps more than ever before (in recent memory at least) the truth of this description is hitting home for Christians in the West. We see the aggressively anti-Christian stance of many of leading commentators and opinion-shapers, and the rising intolerance of basic Christian moral positions (such as on homosexuality), and we wonder what the future will hold.

At Nexus 16, on May 23 , 2016, we’re going to think biblically and theologically about our situation—about the terrain and the time in which we minister the gospel ‘in exile’, and the challenge of equipping our people to live and thrive as Christians in an increasingly hostile environment. 

We’d love you to join us.  Registrations are open now.
