Whether you are in a region where you’re able to meet with friends and family in person, or you’re alone and can only meet virtually, we believe that KCC’s upcoming livestream events are sure to still be an encouraging and refreshing time. Here are some ways you can still enjoy these events – even if you’re alone!
With KCC’s Onward Youth Conference still available on-demand, and BASECAMP Men’s Conference and OneLove Women’s Conference just around the corner, we’ve compiled our top tips for maximising your livestream experiences, so you don’t have to miss out!
Here are 5 ways that you and your friends can still enjoy the livestream, whether you’re together or alone:
1. Utilise technology and be creative with your gathering
Use technology to take the opportunity to connect with your friends during the day. Why not start a zoom chat on the side as you watch the livestream, so you can share your thoughts and reflections together? You can also organise for each person in your group to gift a meal to another person and share this meal virtually during the break. After the stream ends, you can continue the conversation and share with each other or have some fun and play a game to wind down the rest of the day.
“I setup our own (Zoom session), just as our little church, and it was a good opportunity to reflect on the talks, the areas that connected with us or challenged us.” – Travers, BASECAMP 2020 Delegate
2. Purchase your ticket today and start preparing and planning
Purchase your ticket sooner than later so that you can receive the latest updates and resources to help you prepare for the livestream event. Plus, you’ll get first access to opt-in to receiving limited physical copies of Tim Lane’s book ‘Unstuck: A Nine-Step Journey to Change that Lasts’ (BASECAMP) or a physical experience pack in the mail (OneLove).
Both BASECAMP and OneLove will also be available to watch on-demand until the end of September, giving you the flexibility to make plans for your group later. This means you can start planning what you can do in different scenarios. Is your church or hall available if gatherings are allowed? Who else could watch the livestream with you who lives close to you? Remember to always follow your state’s latest health advice.
3. Plan ahead for the time to soak in God’s Word
Consider the time set aside to watch the livestream as an investment in your walk with God! Make a conscious decision to remove any distractions just for the day so you can fill your tank – and be refreshed to keep running, serving and loving God and those around you, the best you can!
4. Gift a ticket to encourage a friend
If you know someone in need of some hope and strength in this season, why not gift them a day spent filling their tanks with God’s Word and encouragement from fellow Christians? Purchase a ticket for a friend or family member who has never been to a KCC event so they can also be encouraged in their spiritual journey. Or why not gift a ticket to your non-Christian friends so they can hear and respond to the gospel? Gifting a ticket is easy! You can visit the BASECAMP and OneLove websites for instructions on how to do this.
“I’ve always wanted to attend OneLove but due to chronic illness have never been able to go. A strange blessing of these COVID times meant the format changed to Livestream, which meant I could attend from my couch - what a gift from God and from my friend who generously sponsored me.” – Anthea, OneLove2020 Delegate
5. Take the conference experience beyond just a day
This year, KCC has planned for all livestream events to be more than just a one-day conference experience. Each program has been thoughtfully designed so that you can continue your growth and reflections, in small groups or by yourself, for weeks following the event. For men, we’ve introduced BASECAMP local, where you can work through the material in Tim Lane’s book ‘Unstuck: A Nine-Step Journey to Change that Lasts’. For women, we’ll be introducing a post-conference growth program to dive deeper into the topic of holiness.
You can also start listening to our Spotify playlists now to familiarise yourself with the worship music on the day, or start browsing the bookstall and buy books that will help you further in your journey.

OneLove women’s conference is returning this Saturday 21 August as a high-quality livestreamed event. Here are 5 reasons to register with your family, friends and women in your church or ministry groups:
1. Hear powerful Bible preaching from Jackie Hill Perry on the topic of holiness
We are thrilled to announce that writer, poet, bible teacher and hip hop artist, Jackie Hill Perry, will be the guest speaker for OneLove women’s conference this August. Jackie will address the theme “Made for More: Created for Holiness” and encourage women to live full lives that are worthy of God’s calling to holiness.
Since becoming a Christian, Jackie has been compelled to use her speaking and teaching gifts to share the light of the gospel of God as authentically as she can. In her biography, Gay Girl, Good God: The Story of Who I Was, and Who God Has Always Been, she shares her story of finding wholeness in her experience of growing up in a fatherless home and struggling with gender confusion.
Jackie grew up abusing marijuana, loving pornography and embracing both masculinity and homosexuality. At the age of 19, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. It didn’t happen in church or through contact with Christians, rather God broke in and turned her heart towards Him.
You can learn more about Jackie and get a taste of her teaching here.
2. Hear inspiring testimonies of seeking personal holiness from other women of faith
Every year at OneLove, we invite everyday Christian women to share their personal stories of faith and how Jesus is relevant to their lives. Last year, we invited Tace Stevens who shared how Jesus gives her confidence in anxiety, and Heidi Tai who shared how God’s mercy transformed her rebellious and hardened heart.
To see these testimonies in full, download the KCC One App.
3. Encourage one another with a full day of fantastic fellowship
In a season of isolation and social distancing, OneLove will give your group an opportunity to enjoy quality time together around God’s word. The OneLove program will include time for reflection, discussion and prayer over the things that have been learned. These deeper conversations are often springboards for new or strengthened friendships–something that can’t always be achieved on Sundays or online church. For this reason, we encourage you to plan a full day with your sisters-in-Christ and access the livestream from your church hall, home or even a holiday house during a weekend getaway!
4. Invite your unchurched friends to hear and respond to the gospel
OneLove is not just for Christian women! We strive to make the event a welcoming space for all women, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. Do you have a friend who has dropped off from the faith? A colleague with spiritual questions? A daughter in need of encouragement? Why not invite them to OneLove so that they can hear and respond to the gospel!
"I just couldn't ignore God's tugging on my heart anymore, so I became a Christian then and there at OneLove." - Jen
5. Be encouraged, refreshed and renewed in your faith
With Australia becoming increasingly secular, being a disciple of Jesus can be a lonely journey. For this reason, sitting under God’s word at OneLove with thousands of other believers can be an uplifting and empowering experience.
“OneLove gives me the opportunity to escape into the Bible for a day–an opportunity I relish. Hearing words of encouragement, words that challenge and words that refresh points me back to that narrow path (Matthew 7:14) of salvation. I leave each year energised, and telling everyone I know to come with me next year!” – Merran

We live in a society that celebrates earthly success and big aspirations. As women, we are encouraged to pursue the perfect ‘balance’ of happiness, health, status and success in work and love. But should this be our end goal? Is this all we were created for?
The Bible tells us that we are God’s handiwork, shaped and moulded by Him and for Him. (Isaiah 64:8). God has made us for more than earthly pursuits. He has made us to be holy. (1 Peter 1).
Our aim for OneLove21 is to encourage one another to live full lives that are worthy of this calling.

Lead Pastor of Anchor Church (South West), Arnaldo Santiago Jr. will join the KCC platform at BASECAMP men's conference this August. Get to know him here!
At BASECAMP this year, we’re inviting men to explore their inner worlds so that they can guard their hearts for God, and have hearts that are ‘unbound’ to love Him and others.
To explore this topic, we are pleased to welcome local speaker, Arnaldo Santiago Jr. who will be giving delegates some tools to ‘declutter’ their hearts so that they can follow Jesus and love others as He commands.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Arnaldo has made his home in Sydney for the last 15 years. He is married to Katherine and they have three energetic and loving kids who keep them both very busy! Arnaldo is the Lead Pastor of Anchor South West, and he can’t think of a more beautiful city than Sydney to be a faithful presence for the glory of Christ!
Get a taste of Arnaldo’s teaching here:
1. What Does God Say About Depression?
Arnaldo Santiago Jr. shares his own mental health journey and what hope the Bible offers those suffering with depression, and Dr Nicolette Maher gives a clinical perspective on depression. He reminds his listeners that even though we may feel abandoned in suffering, in Jesus, we are never alone. Watch it here:
2. Selah: Psalm 8
If you were asked: "what is a human being?" how would you answer? There are a million and one ways to think about or to explore the complexity of the human race. What would you say if the Bible thinks about humanity as Kings & Queens? Listen in to find out an ancient answer to one of the most important questions you can ask.
3. Gentle Fathers & Loving Bosses
In this sermon, Arnaldo unpacks the commands in Ephesians 6:1-9. Rather than call on husbands, fathers, and masters to use their position of social power for themselves, they are commanded to a mutual love that seeks to serve rather than be served.
Men of every generation, assemble at BASECAMP this August!
BASECAMP men’s conference is returning on Saturday 14th August as a high-quality livestream. Guest speakers Dr Tim Lane (Founder, Institute for Pastoral Care) and Arnaldo Santiago Jr. (Lead Pastor, Anchor Church South West) will be joining us to unpack the theme, ‘Unbound: To Love God and Others’.
Tickets are $59 per person, and comes with a copy of Tim Lane’s book “Unstuck: A Nine-Step Journey to Change that Lasts” in either hard copy or eBook format.
