The Strength in Unity (SIU) movement began in NSW in 2003 and held its 1st Conference "Getting Together" at Camp Kedron over the weekend of 29 to 31 August.  The speakers at the four plenary sessions were Kevin Honore, Phil Thomas, and Don Fleming. There was also a wide range of Discussion Forums and a wide cross-section of our para-assembly organisations had displays. The stated goal of the conference was "to network, share and learn from one another under the guidance of God's Word, valuing our unity whilst celebrating our diversity". A report, including details of the feedback responses from the 139 delegates from 30 assemblies, was published in the October 2003 issue of the Assemblies Outreach magazine.

The 2nd SIU Conference was held over the weekend of 6 to 8 August 2004 at the Elanora Conference Centre.  With the underlying theme "Be Real ..." - it proved to be a very challenging and encouraging time for the men and women of all ages who attended.  The speakers were Peter Jensen, Bruce Buckley and Tim Cooper ('Lifeswitch', NZ).  A full Conference report was in the October 2004 issue of the Assemblies Outreach magazine.

The 3rd Conference was held on 26 & 27 August 2005 at CYC, Eltham Park, Mt Victoria, NSW. The speakers were Ross Brown, Ross Bunyon, and David Peacock and the theme was "Discovery Weekend".

The 4th SIU Conference was held at CYC River Park, Yaramundi, NSW, on 1st and 2nd September 2006.  The title was "Conversations with the Future" and, as well as several Bible messages by David Jones (who spearheads the Vision 100 network in Hobart, Tasmania) there were discussions in which groups of people in the 18 to 35 year age bracket (approx.) participated in a series of facilitated dialogues to hear what the younger generation is thinking.  More details can be read in an article by Tim McLaughlin published in the June issue of Assemblies Outreach magazine.  Alternatively, please for more information.

Results of the 2006 Conference were distributed in a report in October 2006.

Details of the 2007 Conference (held 18 August) can be accessed at the new SIU web site.
