Candidates Conference

Candidates Conference

Monday, 23 June to Wednesday, 25 June 2025

The Sydney Candidates Conference is held annually and is open to all Moore College students who are already ordination candidates for the Diocese of Sydney or are on their way to becoming candidates.  All Moore College candidates are expected to attend the conference twice, ideally in their 3rd and 4th years of study.

Gary O’Brien and Steve Rockwell will be leading the conference and a number of other people will be joining them, teaching and sharing with them over the three days.  It should be a great time of fellowship, learning and growing together.



Youthworks Conference Centre at Port Hacking – Chaldercot site – for more details about the site and travel directions visit the Youthworks site.

Steve Rockwell will notify all candidates via email by early May of the conference details.


Commencing at 9am on Monday 23 June & concluding after lunch on Wednesday 25 June 2025


It’s free for all who attend. Unfortunately, we are not able to cater for spouses and children – unless your spouse is also a full-time student at Moore.  If so, and they would also like to attend, please let us know.
