South West Queensland comes together again as one big family of Christ in…


Richard Gibson on Romans

Richard’s the Principal of Brisbane School of Theology. Gibbo, as he’s known, has more than 20 years’ experience teaching at Bible Colleges, and his love of preaching led him to serve on Sydney Diocese’s College of Preachers. Richard and his wife Kim attend St Andrew’s Anglican Church in South Brisbane. Richard often guest speaks at various churches and conferences in South East Queensland as well as New South Wales. He’ll be showing us how Romans gives us a Jesus shaped way to live in our Christian communities.

What is SWQCC?

SWQCC is a Christian Convention from South West Queensland and for South West Queensland. Our goal is to bring together people from Charleville to Kingaroy, from Stanthorpe to Toowoomba, and everywhere in between as one big family of Christ.

For one weekend from Friday 20th July in the evening till Sunday 22nd July at lunchtime we’ll hear the bible, see how Jesus is at work in our region and enjoy being together as God’s people.

In 2018 SWQCC will have these main features:

– Bible teaching on Romans

– Seminars for practical help

– A new youth event

– Full kids program

– Crèche!
