On Saturday 9 September, over 1,700 women travelled to Sydney Olympic Park to hear from God's Word and to spend a day gazing into eternity.
Women travelled far and wide to attend OneLove with the biggest groups coming from Chinese Christian Church (Milsons Point), Wild Street Anglican (Maroubra), St Thomas' Anglican Church (North Sydney), and Windsor District Baptist Church (South Windsor). We also had women joining from as far as Cairns, Melbourne and New Zealand!
Throughout the day there was a joyful sense of unity in the gospel, with women of different cultures, life stages and denominations coming together to worship God under one roof.
Seeing the numbers of women from babies up to great grandma's was thrilling. Not since I was involved with the Billy Graham crusades in Australia have I experienced this presentation of God's Word.
OneLove was an uplifting shared experience with members of my church. I was encouraged by seeing such a large number of beautiful young women willing to give up their Saturday to learn more about following Jesus. I have renewed hope for the future of the church in Australia.
OneLove 2017 featured Bible talks from the books of Genesis, 2 Corinthians and Revelations, taught by guest speakers Nancy Guthrie and Mike Raiter. Women were also served with inspiring testimonies of ordinary Australian women who are living in light of eternity in spite of the hardships they have faced in life.
The talks were full of scripture, engaging and relevant. The testimonies were particularly moving, and prompted excellent conversations throughout the day about stuff that really matters.
The speakers, testimonies, reflection and sharing was excellent. The theme of Eternity really refreshed me and blessed me overall. A magnificently executed day!
Loved hearing the authentic testimonies. It was so wonderful to hear how God has been working in the lives of "ordinary" women.

"In the busyness of our lives it is easy to lose sight of the hope we have in Christ, or to have that sight go little blurry. OneLove is a wonderful opportunity to spend a day away from the pressures and distractions of life, to sit under God’s word and lift our eyes from ourselves and be in awe of God’s majesty."
“You can be shaped by the world around you, or you can be shaped by the Word within you.” - Nancy Guthrie
