Hubs and Watch parties | City Bible Forum

Don’t miss out on one of the things that makes Life@Work Conference great - connecting with others! Either join others at a state-based Hub, or host or join a local Watch Party in a home or church. Check out our list of watch parties and then register here!

Join a hub

When you register, simply select from one of these four Hubs to secure your spot at one of our official live stream sites. There is no additional cost to attend a Hub - simply turn up on the day and enjoy the conference with others! Some Hubs will also feature live presenters. NB: Hubs will not be catered so you will either need to BYO, or purchase food/drinks from nearby retailers.

Catch these presenters at the following Hubs:

  • Geoff Brailey - Sydney
  • Sam Chan - Sydney
  • Kara Martin - Sydney
  • Andrew Laird - Brisbane
  • Your conference MCs - Melbourne
Join a local church watch party

Is your church hosting a Watch Party? Simply select their name from the dropdown menu when you register!

NOTE: When you register for a church Watch Party we will be providing your email address to the church so they can contact you should they have any specific details they wish to share.

Host a local church or home watch party

We want to make hosting a Watch Party really easy for you (and lots of fun!). Below are the four simple steps to follow.

1. Register as a host

The first thing to do is register yourself as a host, by using our specific Watch Party host registration page. Make sure you leave your postal address so that we can send you your host pack.

2. Host Pack

All hosts who register prior to midnight Sunday 29 January 2023 will be sent a host pack (NB - pack will arrive the week of the conference). Included in that pack are posters and other items to decorate your venue. If you don’t register before that date e-versions of that material will be available to download from here in January.

A reminder, all attendees will be receiving their conference e-booklet so you don’t have to do any printing to get them ready for the day!

3. Invite your friends or church members

We want to make it really easy for you to get the word out to your friends or church members about your Watch Party. Below are some ways to do that:

Church Hosts - When you invite people to register for your Watch Party please encourage them to select your church from the drop-down menu. This is to ensure that we can give you accurate attendance numbers prior to the conference (you will be sent two emails prior to the conference giving you the names and email addresses of everyone who has registered for your watch party).

4. Decide what to eat together!

Between the two sessions we won’t be planning any activities or discussion during that hour - we want you to relax with your guests and enjoy the social time. What you eat together we'll leave to you to plan so it can be just how you like it! The main thing is we want you to enjoy the day.
