Pro Life Conference 2023

23 – 26

Novotel Ellerslie

Join us for the MOST important pro-life and pro-family conference of 2023!

We’re living in a time of confusion and chaos with false freedom being extolled as the sure path to happiness. But there still is hope!

The sexual revolution, that promised so much freedom, has left many people wounded by its enticing traps.

Those who carry wounds are not just anyone…

The wounded are your children, your brother, sister, mother, father, cousin, aunt, uncle, friend, colleague, neighbour. You.

How do we speak the truth in love to those most dear to us? How do we stand firm in an ever-changing moral landscape? What can be done? Is all lost?

All is not lost.
There is cause for great hope!

Christ Jesus has the victory. Our task is to be faithful defenders of truth right where God has placed us in this precise moment in history.

In this most important conference, featuring an impressive line-up of international and local speakers, you and your family will be taken out of the confusion and chaos and reminded of the sure path to happiness.

Gain an understanding of current issues affecting life, faith, and family, and discover ways to effectively engage with an increasingly secular and wounded society.

Even more importantly, learn how to walk with, and answer the questions of, the people closest to you with true compassion.

Don’t miss this full three-day programme packed with informative presentations, workshops, networking opportunities, and prayer.

I don’t want to miss this critical pro-life conference

I understand that there are a limited number of seats available for the MOST important pro-life, pro-family conference of 2023.

Please send me an email when registrations open, so I don’t miss out.

“Our family wanted to write and thank FLI for organising and hosting another wonderful Conference.  Being amongst likeminded Pro-Life/Pro-Family Catholic laity and Clergy was a real boost for the soul.”

What past participatants say:

“This was my second conference but the first that I have attended almost its entirety. I think it matches and betters other secular conferences I have been to. ”

— Martin

“I greatly valued the opportunity to meet with like-minded people and discuss various matters of interest and concern.”

— Jim

Go Forward in Hope Conference


We are still organising the details for the Go Forward in Hope Pro-Life and Pro-Family Conference and will therefore update this page as details are confirmed, including further speakers, and the programme.

Registration, when it opens, will also be on this page. We know that times are tough at the moment, so where there is genuine need, sponsorships will be available.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. Either Michelle or Simon will respond to your queries.

“Let us go forward in hope!

The Son of God, who became incarnate two thousand years ago out of love for humanity, is at work even today: we need discerning eyes to see this and, above all, a generous heart to become the instruments of his work.”

Pope Saint John Paul II, Novo Millenio Ineunte, 58
