About Wise Convention

What is Wise Convention?

Wise is the 2018 Youth and Young Adults Convention of the Christian Reformed Churches of Australia. Convention has a rich history in the CRCA and the 2018 Convention will add to this rich history.

Why choose Wise as a theme?

This convention will focus on wisdom, specifically the wisdom of God as given to us by the book of Proverbs.

Who can come?

Anyone between the ages of 15 and 28 is welcome to attend Wise Convention 2018.

As a Young Adult what will I get out of it?

We are particularly keen on making Convention 2018 as helpful to our young adults as possible. As such we have designed convention to include a number of additional workshops, electives and grapple sessions targeted specifically at those who want to “go deeper”. We believe that this will ensure that our young adults will not only have a great time at convention, but that that they will have significant faith shaping experiences at convention.
