Keynote Speaker

Matt Fuller

Senior Pastor, Christchurch Mayfair

Matt Fuller is the Senior Pastor at Christ Church Mayfair in central London, where he has served since it was planted in 2001.

Despite being 5 mins walk from Buckingham Palace, he has never been invited for tea and only met the Queen once.  Yet, on the upside, while plodding away for 20 years, he has been privileged to see a growing ministry to families, young workers and students as well as planting a number of other churches into other parts of the city.

He also sits on the Board of the Co-mission network of churches and has authored a number of books.  His great sporting love is cricket, but given the current state of the England team, he never reveals that to Aussies.

Matt Fuller will be presenting his talks live at Katoomba during KEC 2022.

Sam Chan

Public Speaker, City Bible Forum

If you haven’t met Sam Chan, his life is partially Crazy Rich Asian and just Crazy Asian. He’s a doctor of medicine, received a PhD in theology from TEDS (Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) while living in the States and his book won Christianity Today‘s Book of the Year in Evangelism/Apologetics in 2019… but he hoped his mandatory piano playing would make him a good karaoke singer (it didn’t), he’s still trying to learn how to surf (without drowning) and after much trial and error, he is slowly perfecting the American BBQing of brisket in his Hark. Married with 3 boys, Sam works at City Bible Forum as a public speaker and says he has one of the best jobs around—he helps workers ask the bigger questions.

QuizWorx

Quiz Worx was formed in 1998 as a part-time ministry. We consisted of two humans (Matt Gorton and Simon Jessup) and two puppets (Scruff and Blue Bottle).

From that time, and in God’s grace, the team and ministry have grown. Quiz Worx is now a full-time ministry with a team of around 20 permanent people, numerous volunteers (especially at Christmas) and a whole lot of puppet characters.

Since 1998 Quiz Worx have had the privilege of performing more than 6,000 shows, for more than 750,000 people. We use the mediums of puppetry, music, chalk talks, animations, storytelling, drama, quick draw, comics, and numerous other tools to present the Good News.

QuizWorx will be teaching our Primary Program.
