Where: Emmett Street Community Church, 106 Emmett Street, Shirley, Christchurch, New Zealand

Tell Me Conference is geared towards bringing together faithful biblical teaching with practical action. This conference aims to provide a sound theological framework for evangelism, as well as offering opportunities for fellowship and networking together. Our hope is to encourage the gospel to the forefront of Christian living by making this conference as accessible as possible. Therefore this is a free conference (lunch provided) and is open to anyone (families are warmly welcomed) who would like to develop in both sharing the gospel and biblical apologetics. Come and be encouraged, as God equips us to be more effective in our daily lives.

Theme & TopicsSaved from God; Saved by God; Saved for God

  • A Challenge to Faithful Evangelism (Andy Barlow)
  • The Doctrine of Hell (Rob Harrod) – Last year we had local pastor, Jason Winslade of Redemption Church, come and teach on a doctrine that is central to the understanding of the biblical gospel message: penal substitutionary atonement (go and listen to it).  This year we are grateful to have another local pastor, Rob Harrod of Grace Baptist Church, come and tackle the difficult subject of Hell.  We understand that this is not a popular subject – but it is important to understand correctly within the context of the gospel.  It will be addressed lovingly and faithfully.
