AUSTRALIA

Purpose

We exist to connect, empower and resource people engaging in movement-based arts to participate in God’s love, plans and purposes.

About

For more than 4 decades, a community of people with a heart for creative movement arts has networked across Australia.

We acknowledge support and encourage God-inspired and God-enabled transformation in the personal and community lives of those who choose to travel with us, whether that be a brief encounter or a lifetime commitment. Through prayer, conversations, activities and events, we aim to co-journey with participants in a context of respect, appreciation and celebration.

We want local expressions of Church to unify and flourish amongst the wider community and beyond!

A time of invitation and opportunities

A new era of exploration has begun!

We have moved into fresh ways of being visible, available and relevant in this nation-of-many-nations called Australia!

Currently, Elisabeth Davis, based in Brisbane Qld, is working with Lucy Jarasius, based in Toowoomba Qld, to co-facilitate the national vision for ICDF Australia at such a time as this.
Interest and enthusiasm is growing for the establishment of a number of small local hubs of creatives, hosted by dance-worshippers, around the country.

We are prayerfully seeking people to participate in this New Thing!

Scripture

Founding scripture

“Rejoice in that day and leap for joy.”   Luke 6:23

Season scripture

Isaiah 43:18-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

“Stop dwelling on the past.
Don’t even remember these former things.
I am doing something brand new, something unheard of.
Even now it sprouts and grows and matures.
Don’t you perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and open up flowing streams in the desert.”
