What's new about this year?

More than a one-off event

VFJ 2015 will move from being just a powerful one-off conference and lobbying event, to a platform for deeper campaign strategising and ongoing resourcing as advocates.This means that the four powerful days in Canberra will be designed to equip you with new tools, strategies and networks for ongoing campaigning and connecting in your local regions.

Launch of new Micah campaign

VFJ 2015 will be the public launch of the new Micah campaign. You will have the opportunity to hear and share in the renewed collective vision and strategy of the coalition as we seek to influence Australian politics for the good of the world’s poor in a post-2015 context.

Prayer vigils across Australia

Christians and churches across Australia will stand in solidarity with us as they facilitate prayer vigils in conjunction with our nighttime vigil on Monday 12th. We will be inviting churches to register their prayer vigil on our website and will provide them with prayer resources so that they can join us in praying for the church, our nation, our leaders and our world.
