Jesus 12 24 Return is an accessible, affordable, and ecological global online conference.

6 speakers from around the world will offer unique and passionate takes on Jesus.

You can join live on the day, or download the talks later


how does this work?

We all love (parts of) conferences. Getting to hear incredible speakers engage with topics that matter to us, offering fresh insights, blowing our minds with their passion and knowledge. We love the chance of getting to hear from someone we wouldn't normally get the chance to hear. You know the parts we don't tend to love? Travel, expenses, awkward small talk, having to get out of our comfy clothes. Jesus 12 24: Return is all the best parts of a conference, at a very reasonable price. Being online we are able to cut down on costs as we cut down on emissions, so we're gathering a worldwide lineup that you'd never normally be able to get in one place at one time.  Not only that, Jesus 12 24 is the only conference where you can decide to bail the day before and still get all the great content delivered to you later. Reach out to if you have any questions. 

Jesus 12 24 is a one day (12hour) web conference. 6 different speakers will be talking and engaging with Q&A, each will provide a unique, fascinating, important, and passionate take on Jesus. We would love if you would join us, there are two ways to engage...

About the Organisers

Uniting Church Chaplaincy, Macquarie University

We seek to cultivate a responsible faith through community and by learning from a range of voices - empowering a lived faithfulness that desires to embody the hopes of God.

The chaplaincy is part of the Uniting Church in Australia, and is present on Macquarie University in Sydney. We have been building an online ministry over the past few years. Undertaking recently a number of interviews with renowned theologians and practitioners that can be viewed here. We ran our first Jesus 12 24 last year (though that version went for 24 hours straight) and we had so much fun and received so much positive feedback that we can't wait to do it again. We hope you'll join us, wherever you are in the world, whatever stage of life. 

The chaplaincy team is led by...
