About Movement Day Australia

Movement Day Australia was launched in May 2018 at the Sydney Congress Hall and brought together hundreds of Christian leaders from different denominational, ethnic, geographical, and socio-economic sectors across Australia and the South Pacific.

Our Vision

For a gospel movement to flourish in each town and city of Australia, through a unified church, which proclaims the good news of the gospel and champions justice for the broken and destitute.

Core convictions

  • Inspiring Action

    The impact of this new paradigm is showcased at Movement Day. Movement Day is a series of local catalytic events where churches and leaders tell movement stories that inspire action in other leaders to impact their city with a generous localised gospel that released beauty and shalom.

  • Australian Cities

    Your city belongs to God. Each of you are uniquely positioned by God within a city to see it transformed by the gospel. Instead of being Church or Christian silos with walls and barriers of differences, you can spend your life working towards the kingdom transformation of your local city.

  • Collaborative Engagement

    Together, as churches, Christians and leaders you can take responsibility for the stubborn facts affecting your city and collaboratively engage with other churches, Christians and leaders in your city to bring generous, localised solutions.

  • Together

    Jesus prayed that “we might be One” (John 21:17) and represent what God’s love looks like in the city where we live. His call to unity is not just a call to the Church but to all city institutions and all Christians.

  • Shalom

    Jeremiah 29:7 says to seek the shalom of the place I have carried you into. Seeking shalom in the city you live means envisioning and releasing the beauty, completeness, fullness, wholeness, soundness, health, peace, safety and prosperity of God.

Our History
