“Since the day God gave us the idea of uniting young people to pool their gifts and talents to tell the world the most important news of Jesus, it has been clear that He was going to bless the RICE Movement.
God has taken us on a journey where every RICE Rally we witness an outpouring of his blessing. Every year has hundreds of young people put their faith in Christ. That pivotal moment when hundreds of hands shoot up to say ‘I want to give my life to Christ’ is certainly the signature moment that best captures what RICE stands for.
I count it as a privilege to be the founding director of this movement knowing full well it is God’s movement. It was His idea, His blessing; it is His harvest. We are all just hanging on for the ride as we step out upon the unknown waters of the years ahead taking each next step only as we fix our eyes on Jesus who is calling us toward Him.
Yet God’s blessing towards the RICE Movement has continued even further. Those evangelistic seeds sown have been watered and have sprouted a harvest of events, creating the space for these same young people to be renewed and recharged in their faith. Many of these events have become for our youth, places of community and fellowship. They have united the youth in their pursuit of taking Jesus seriously in all aspects of their lives. This is why ‘renewal’ is a key part of RICE’s vision for these young men and women.“
In a world full of noise, how do we find what we’re really looking for?
We yearn for something more but where do we find it? How do we even start?
With so many unanswered questions, we seek out our identity, our purpose, our satisfaction
in the world around us and in our seeking, we lose ourselves.
But what if you could find what it is you’ve been searching for?
What if you’ve just been too lost in the noise to see it?
Join us as we explore the idea of FOUND at RICE Rally 2018!
RICE Rally exists to bring a fresh perspective on the gospel and how Jesus impacts our whole life and how we must respond.

Volunteers are the backbone of our events.
We cannot run this event smoothly without the contribution of our generous volunteers.
As volunteers, it is such a great experience to be able to witness and participate in God’s work on the night of RICE Rally.
You can be involved in ushering, logistics, and other roles.
We hope that you will join us in ushering young people into eternal life with Jesus!
It would be great if you and your youth group could familiarise yourse’ves with these songs.
We can’t wait to sing them together!

The RICE movement’s signature event is RICE Rally. Once a year we see thousands of young people unite from different churches, schools, and communities to see the gospel of Jesus proclaimed. Our hope is that each year we will see many turn to faith in Christ as they respond to the message of the gospel. We also long to see those who may have neglected their relationship with God recommit their lives to Christ.
Each RICE Rally night, God’s love in the gospel is proclaimed through a variety of creative elements such as music, dance, and art. The centrepiece of this proclamation is a Biblical and compelling evangelistic talk, at the end of which the youth are invited to make a decision in light of what they’ve heard. The climax of the night is when those whom God has drawn to himself respond in saving faith and are welcomed home as they publicly walk out the auditorium and take their first steps in their new life with Christ as Lord.
RICE is a movement by the local church and for the local church. We consist of members from various local churches who know and understand the climate of Christianity in Sydney and what the local church needs. The power of unity occurs when we gather together from our various churches and allows us to be a blessing to all churches in Sydney.
We would love for you to join us and be a pioneer to bless your local church, and other churches who have a desire to see the name of Jesus proclaimed. Our first event leading up to Rally is called Regionals which has the passion to see youth fired up for evangelism. Please refer to the Regionals page for more information.
