An Essential Event for Christians Wanting Righteous Government

Join us for Church And State Adelaide: an exciting afternoon and evening of Biblical teaching and analysis on the relationship between Christians & government, and how we as believers can practically be salt which flavours & light which shines in the public square.

Following the huge success of the fifth annual Church And State Summit (February 2022) this unique conference will include special presentations from Senator Alex Antic, James Macpherson, Todd Weatherly, Dave Pellowe and others, as well as time for Q&A and extended conversation over afternoon tea and dinner.


” The Lord was amazed to see no one intervened…”


Many Scriptures like this in Isaiah 59:14-16 reveal the Church should not be apolitical (not interested or involved in politics). But what more does the Bible say about God’s people and politics, or the important public issues our communities are facing?

There is a pressing need for sound teaching on Biblical doctrines of government, church and family (specifically in relation to each other). Church And State is encouraging Christians in every electorate to carefully steward political influence as Jesus would in our place – without blind loyalty to any politician or party.

Motivated by a sincere love for our 26 million neighbours (Australia) and God’s concern for justice in the land, this ministry is encouraging Christians to use God’s Word to guide their votes & political engagement, instead of the TV, internet or partisan agendas.

Senator Alex Antic dares to ask the questions lesser men run from in his fearless pursuit of Truth and justice in government. Alex has a deserved reputation for common sense and courage while under fire from media hostile to cultural Christianity. Progressive blog Crikey recently described Senator Antic as a “boy culture warrior“. A federal senator representing South Australia since 2019, he was previously a commercial lawyer.

James Macphersonis a sought-after speaker and commentator. He writes daily for Rebel News, a weekly column for Sky News, and a twice weekly column for The Spectator. He appears on Sky TV three nights a week as a political commentator on The World According to Rowan Dean.  Prior to working in media, James led one of Australia’s largest Pentecostal churches, with nine campuses across Australia and in South Africa.

Kirralie Smith is an activist for justice and truth in the public square who speaks fearlessly about the inherent differences between boys and girls, men and women. As the founder of Binary, Kirralie challenges the aggressive agenda to remove biological sex from education, health, politics and law, and protects children from those who would seek to indoctrinate them.

Ps Todd Weatherly is a church planter and pastor’s pastor, founding Field of Dreams Church in Adelaide with his wife Rachel. A brilliant communicator, he has never shied away from prophetically preaching Truth to power in the pulpit or in his many private opportunities throughout business and politics.

Dave Pellowe specialises in Christian voter education as the convenor of the annual Church And State Summit and publisher of the right-thinking website, The Good Sauce. His own articles have also been published in The Spectator, Quadrant Online, and more. His latest initiative is Locke Press, helping Christians and conservative authors self-publish for a greater share of profits from their own hard work.
