After a difficult committee meeting we have sadly had to cancel SWQCC for the second year in a row. With less than half the amount of people registered than our very first year and only 40 adults it seemed that too many people were not wanting to gather. This in top of a series of snap lock downs in Brisbane in the last month created the real threat that our teaching, kids and logistics team all from Brisbane could be wiped out with less than a days notice. At the start of the year I reckon we all thought there would not be the same kind of lockdown thing happening by now, but unfortunately there is. We’ll issue refunds over the coming days. Thank you for your support in previous years.


What is South West Queensland Christian Convention?

Hosted at the Dalby Christian College, SWQCC was started to give churches across regional areas the encouragement and benefit of gathering together as a big group. With a focus on gospel centered preaching, seminars built for rural areas and stories of Christian life from our region this is a convention for the South West and by the South West.

Dalby Christian College

Registration and the main part of convention is held in the Auditorium at Dalby Christian College. The kids, creche and Citizens programs are held at various locations throughout the school.

The street address is 2A Mary street.

The SWQCC committee would like to thank the college for their generous support of the convention.
