I don't speak Greek. Is that an issue?
The importance of an inclusive experience for all individuals, both Greek and non-Greek, has been a focus in the organisation of Assemble 2020, so as a registered delegate, you can wholly participate and understand the content provided on the day. For this reason, all speakers will present in English, including His Eminence Archbishop Makarios. Our worship services will be served in both English and Greek.
Is there an opportunity to sponsor Assemble 2020?
Absolutely. It takes special people to create and deliver an event like this, and it takes investment.
There are sponsorship opportunities available for Assemble 2020, designed to expose your brand to our delegates and their networks, via print, digital and experiential media, before, during and after the event.
Will the conference be photographed/filmed?
What if I do not wish to appear in any media?
Upon registration, you are expressly providing consent for the CYC to have your photo/video captured throughout the event. The CYC will attempt to reasonably exclude you in all photos as expressly requested by you, although holds no liability in the event that you are indeed captured in this media.

The venue has accessible wheelchair ramps and the day's activities will take place on ground floor.
Please get in touch with us to determine all accessibility arrangements by request.
I am not Greek Orthodox, can I still attend?
We welcome all individuals aged 15-40 with curiosities about the Orthodox faith to come and respectfully experience the Church. The speaker sessions are open to all individuals, however kindly note there are guidelines regarding participation in the Holy Divine Liturgy.
These guidelines can be found on the official webpage of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.
