If you couldn’t make it to NEXT’s Open Night, you can now watch and engage online.

Through the NEXT Open Night you will discover the heart behind NEXT, the way we approach discipleship and formation, the options you have available and how you can  join us for 2015.  There’s also a special Spoken Word / Slam Poetry piece by Joel McKerrow.

NEXT Open Night witnessed a terrific gathering of folks from many different churches, organisations and backgrounds.  It was great to see this interest in NEXT and the broad connections it has made in such a short time.

There was a great buzz in the room as new students considered their options for next year, parents explored the opportunity this represented for their son or daughter, while pastors, mentors and ministry leaders inquired about the ways in which NEXT can link up with their organisation to disciple emerging and young adults together.
