'Real Hope Tamworth' for 2007 will be held on the 9th to the 11th November with the aim of providing a weekend of teaching and outreach for Christians to gather together to receive the message.
Outlining the benefit of the evangelistic event, Andrew Wilcher, the Committee Chairman for the event, said it was a good network opportunity for Christians who can also receive training there as well.
"It's an opportunity for Christians to meet and get some training apart from what they normally get at their own churches," he said.
The first outreach event was staged in 2005 where Sydney Anglican Archbishop Dr. Peter Jensen gave a series of addresses focusing on living a distinctive Christian life. Around 1700 people attended the largest session on that weekend.
Real Hope Tamworth 2007 will begin on Friday evening 9 November when the Anglican Bishop of Armidale, Dr Peter Brain, will speak from his book Going the Distance: How to Stay Fit for a Lifetime of Ministry.
Also on Friday night there will be a youth outreach event for those 12 years of age and older, called 'The Big Night Out'. Staged at nearby Carinya Christian School, the evening will include Jodi McNeill (Head of Yr 13 Youthworks) Sydney, and columnist on youth work in the magazine, Southern Cross. Also, featured will be two bands, Playjerise, and Richard Beeston.
On Saturday morning 10 November, Michael Raiter, Principal of the Bible College of Victoria, will be the speaker at two sessions entitled, Jesus and Everyday Life.
Saturday afternoon will feature seminars ranging from The Prosperity Gospel, and Christian Parenting, to Youth Matters, with Michael Raiter, Greta Gaut, and Jodie McNeill.
Saturday evening will include outreach for all ages with Jodie McNeill (Anglican Youthworks) and the Richard Beeston Band.
