ICDF Australia

International Christian Dance Fellowship of Australia
Representative: Lucy Jarasius
Start: 1978


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


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!

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.”
