23-25 July  2021

Stand for the Gospel is a weekend conference that was started in 2010 with a vision to serve the church in New Zealand, across denominations around the unity of the Gospel. We celebrate its life transforming power and take up the call to proclaim it to all people, calling all people to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.


The conference is purposely simple:

  • We host one keynote speaker from overseas who expounds the Scriptures challenging us with the Word of God.

  • Men and women serving the church in New Zealand offer seminars on topics which unfold implications of the Gospel and applying them to our lives as believers and servants of Christ.

  • We provide an opportunity for a small number of ministries to have display tables where they can share their ministry aims with attendees throughout the weekend.


Conferences can be a drain on time and resources. They can also be a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and spiritual feeding. We pray Stand for the Gospel falls into the second category, and hope that you’ll join us!

Coming up soon in  2020
