Last words

First Century Ministry was founded on and around the key principle disciple making
Turmoil and Dissonances

But even amidst this disillusionment, Christian leaders are seeing a spiritual hunger in Australia. Times of change, hardship and crisis can often cause people to think more deeply about what matters.
The COVID-19 pandemic has seen people across the globe reconsidering their values and searching for community, connection and meaning in their lives.

A Final Word ….
From a human perspective, the changing social, cultural, religious and demographic trends were already providing challenges for the church- and then came COVID. Yet our conviction, after completing this report, is that the church in Australia has the commitment of leaders, the innovation of approach and the pipeline of emerging generations to enable it to thrive into the future.

As our research consistently shows, Australians are warm towards Christians, and even more positive towards Christ. The opportunity for the church is as straightforward as it is complex- in a diverse and changing nation, to make Him known.
