Come together as a group to share your thoughts and experiences. It’s an opportunity to listen, support, and be supported. We believe in the power of collective prayer,  finding strength and hope in our faith.


Create a group of 6-8 people consisting of people from different churches. Please only have a maximum of two people from one church at each group. 


  1. Arrange your group to be in a circle
  2. Think about a personal attribute/characteristics that best describe you that starts with the same letter as your name. 
  3. Start the game by asking one person to state his or her first name.
  4. The next person must state the previous person’s name and then state his or her own.
  5. Keep going around the circle, each subsequent person must remember and state the names of everyone who went before.


  1. What are you hoping to get out of Connect 2023?

  3. What are some challenges you face when trying to connect with fellow Christians? How do you think we can break down some of those barriers and make it easier to connect?
  4. As a Seventh-day Adventist young adult, what are some challenges you face in today’s world? How do you think the church can better address the needs of the modern-day culture in Sydney?
  5. What can you do better personally to help and embrace others who struggle to connect in the church?


“The Lord has promised that where two or three are met together in His name, there will He be in the midst. Those who meet together for prayer will receive an unction from the Holy One. There is great need of secret prayer, but there is also need that several Christians meet together and unite with earnestness their petitions to God.” In Heavenly Places, p. 91.
