May the Joy of the Lord be your strength
15-17 March 2024
The Tops Conference Centre, Stanwell Tops
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Psalm 51:12
Are you are confronted by life’s troubles and you find yourself drowning in life’s storms? There seems to be no Joy in life, no sunshine sneaking out from behind the clouds. It might seem that everyone else around you seems to know and experience Joy. But, you just don’t feel joyful about anything.
Interestingly enough, the Bible tells us that joy can be experienced even in the hard times.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds…” (James 1:2).
But wait a minute! God wants us to be joyful all the time? How can we be joyful when we’re going through bad times? I’m glad you asked.
Come and join us at the E3 conference 2024, where we will be exploring the topic of Joy Restored. What is Joy? Is it the same as Happiness? What does the bible teach us about Joy? How can we restore Joy to our lives, and continue to have it even when we are confronted with Life’s troubles.
We look forward to seeing you in 2024!
What is E3?
A weekend conference held by CWCI. We have talks and activities lead by experienced and real Christians who walk the Christian life and know what it’s like. People who have really lived their faith. Come escape the everyday and connect with God.
Enlightened know the hope to which he has called you
Enriched by the riches of his glorious inheritance
Empowered that power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted
E3 is a conference for those who seek to immerse themselves in Bible teaching that transforms how they live a life of faith. Our speakers are women who have lived a life of faith which they share bringing the Bible to life. There are many opportunities to pray in groups pairs or individually so that we may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in our inner being. We sing old and new songs with a great band and you can dance while you sing.
"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you" Ephesians 1:18
Speaker for 2024
Chris Quirk - Main Speaker
The older I get, the more I experience the sadness and complications that this world brings – joy can be lost.
I am passionate about teaching the Bible systematically and encouraging women to draw closer to Jesus who gives the gift of joy.
My theological studies, mentoring and raising my family have shown me the deep and compassionate love of our Lord and Saviour.
Chris is married with three children and seven grandchildren. She lives in Sydney’s western suburbs and enjoys family picnics.
