Voices for Justice 2019

Bringing the tribes of the Australian church together, to speak up for the world’s poor in our nation’s capital.

Voices for Justice is Micah Australia's flagship event, and a unique opportunity for you to gather with like-minded Christians to lobby your MP and state Senators on the issue of global poverty.

By inspiring, training and equipping Christians to speak with federal politicians about global poverty, Voices for Justice has provided a catalyst for building long-term relationships between Australian Christians and their local MPs, and set the stage for major aid announcements and breakthroughs in previous years.

Voices for Justice comes at a critical time in Australia's political cycle and international relations.This is a key opportunity for you to use your voice and lobby our nation's leaders on the importance of turning around the downward trend of Australian aid, which is continuing to hurt the most vulnerable citizens of the world as well as Australia's standing in our region. 

The Location:

We are excited to be hosting Voices for Justice at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. The Centre is located on a five hectare site on the edge of the Parliamentary Triangle in Canberra and is within walking distance to Parliament House as well as local cafes and shops.

What do I need to know?

Who organises CMS Summer School?

CMS Summer School is organised by the NSW & ACT branch of CMS. CMS (Church Missionary Society) is a fellowship of Bible-believing individuals and churches committed to gospel proclamation. Together we send missionaries across cultures to proclaim the gospel of Jesus and to encourage his people. Our vision is to see a world that knows Jesus.

Why you’ll love Summer School

Challenging and uplifting Bible teaching
Begin your year built up and rooted in God’s word.

Unplugged stories from CMS missionaries
Hear how God has been seeking the lost around the world.

Refreshment with fellow believers
See how you and your church are partners
in God’s global mission.

Who is Summer School for?

CMS Summer School is for you! At CMS Summer School, you’ll find engaging Bible teaching from world-class speakers, diverse and topical missionary sessions, great music, focused prayer and fellowship with friends. We’d love to see you there!

What should I bring to Summer School? What do I need to organise?

You will need to organise your own accommodation and your own food. Many visitors to Summer School rent accommodation in the local area. One thing to remember is your Bible!  CMS provides a book for taking notes, a pen and some other goodies!

Where is Summer School held?

CMS Summer School is held at the Katoomba Conference Centre in the Blue Mountains, corner of Cliff Drive and Violet Street, Katoomba. The Youth and Children’s program is held at various locations around the site with some programs at the CMS Conference Centre and others at Katoomba Primary and Katoomba High School.

Speakers:

Simon Manchester - Simon originally trained in ministry in southern Sydney, moved to London to continue training, and then came back to Australia to minister to workers and families. Simon serves as the senior pastor at St Thomas’ Anglican Church in North Sydney. He is married to Kathy with three adult children. Simon will be opening up the book of 1 Timothy at Summer School.

 Grishma Parajuli - Grishma is the senior pastor of Nayagaun church in Nepal, where he has been serving for more than 30 years with his wife Laxmi. Originally from a high-caste Hindu background, Grishma became a Christian after investigating Christianity closely in an attempt to disprove it. At Summer School Grishma will challenge us with the gospel needs and opportunities for God’s church in Nepal.

Tim Swan - Tim served as a CMS missionary in Chile from 2004-2013, where he helped to establish the Centre for Pastoral Studies (CEP), a college to train church leaders. After returning to Sydney, Tim and his wife Sally led a church plant congregation which has become Willoughby Park Anglican Church. Tim will give three evening talks from Luke 6 on Jesus’ response to rising opposition.

What happens at CMS Summer School?

CMS Summer School 2020 will be held at KCC, Cliff Drive, Katoomba. The opening session begins at 7pm, Saturday 4 January 2019.

What does a day at CMS Summer School look like?

8.45am – Parents drop off children for Youth and Children’s programs 
9am
 – Morning Bible study sessions with Simon Manchester
10.45am – Morning tea
11.15am – Missionary sessions (seven to choose from each day on different topics)

Youth & Children’s program

There are nine age-based programs for your children that run alongside the morning sessions. This year the Youth and Children’s program will also focus on Jeremiah. We will provide family Bible studies so you can grow and learn from God’s word together.

You must apply for children’s places online. You cannot register for the Youth & Children’s program on site.

Adult program

We will upload a detailed program here closer to the date.

For many Christians, CMS Summer School is one of the best loved events of the year. We’ve been holding this annual conference for over 100 years. And while some things have changed – electricity, plumbing, caffeine – the heart of Summer School is the same: faithful and challenging Bible teaching, inspiring first-hand insights into cross-cultural ministry, and plenty of time to catch up with friends in the afternoons.

Held from the first Saturday in January through to the following Friday, CMS Summer School is a time of renewal and reflection. It’s a week of immense value for all believers as we live out our lives for Christ. If you’ve never been, join us this January in Katoomba. We’d love to have your company.

National Prayer Breakfast 2019

  • Great Hall Parliament House Canberra (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
FB.png

At a time when the role of faith in public life is being questioned and challenged, the National Prayer Breakfast is an important opportunity to join together with the Christian community across Australia in recognition of the many shared values and aspirations we hold for our nation and her people. In light of the apostle Paul’s call to “pray for all those in authority”, we also encourage you to reach out to your local MP on a regular basis, and to host a table at the Prayer Breakfast for your local faith leaders and invite your MP to join you.

When we pray to our God and Father, we are reminded of our own frailties, our need for forgiveness and of the solemn responsibility of using power for the benefit of others. We pray that men and women in national leadership will discover a new strength through the fellowship of the followers of Jesus Christ, and that they will know God's wisdom and strength in all their service.

Please contact Leon Hribar for further information.

“What if “just try harder” isn’t the answer to how we live for Jesus?

When we’re so focused on what we need to get done each day, or we’re caught in habitually destructive sin, when we’re wondering how to make sense of life, what if what we need is to look upwards rather than glare inwards?

As we explore Colossians 3:1–17 together this year I’m praying that women’s convention is a chrysalis moment for you and the women in your world as we are wrapped up in all we have in Christ and find ourselves transformed in him.

Join me to explore how God’s grace and love can give us transformed lives in Jesus.”

QUOTE FROM: Anna Boxwell, Convention Chair

Keynote Speaker - FIONA SMARTT

Fiona Smartt is a pastor who lives in the Inner West of Sydney with her husband Ryan and young kids. She has known about Jesus for as long as she can remember, but it was in late high school that she was gripped by the radical grace of Christ and she hasn’t looked back since! Fiona serves at Christ Church Inner West Anglican Community and counts it a constant joy and privilege to see people find life that is full and rich in Jesus and grasp the freedom grace brings.

“Paul’s letter to the young church in Colossae is beautifully practical and hopeful about how Jesus Christ deeply changes you, so much so that it can be said you essentially become a new self. I love the way Colossians reminds us that real change is possible, and we can all be transformed and grow to be more like Jesus as we fix our hearts on his glory and grace.”

ELECTIVES

When you register you can choose from one of the following electives.

The transformative power of Christian singing

Olivia Chapman - Elective Speaker

God invented music to move us toward him, but music can be one of the most divisive aspects of church life: what songs do we sing, with what size band, and when will that electric guitarist stop soloing? How do we let ‘the Word of Christ dwell amongst us richly’ (Col 3:16) and what does this mean practically for our Christian singing? In this elective we’ll open up Colossians 3:16-17 to rediscover God’s purposes for singing in church.

Olivia Chapman is originally from Sydney and now lives and works in Oxford, UK, for Emu Music. She trains and resources church musicians and leaders around the world, and writes songs for churches. For more information about her ministry, visit emumusic.com.

Forgiveness: hurting and healing

Monica Short - Elective Speaker

Forgive?! How can I when I am hurting? Hurting and healing can be hard, heavy and exhausting. This interactive elective focuses on Colossians 3:12-14. Monica will share true stories from her research on church life about hurting, forgiveness and healing. This elective will give you practical help in forgiveness so you can dare to bear with one another.

Limited Numbers

Monica Short is excited to be a Christian and a member of the Anglican church.  She is also a lecturer with Charles Sturt University, a social worker, a social researcher and author of several books and publications about the church. She is married to Mark and they are the proud parents of two young adult sons.

Women and pornography

Alice Taylor - Elective Speaker

Porn isn’t just a guy’s issue. Many women find themselves struggling with pornography but are unable to access the support they need. Most recovery resources are aimed at men, and the conversation can ignore women, leaving them feeling ashamed and stuck. Alice will share her story of overcoming pornography and explain the unique needs of female addicts. From breaking stigma and starting the conversation in your church context, to practical steps in how to provide care and understand the causes of addiction, this session will provide you with the basics to help women heal.

Limited Numbers

Alice Taylor is the founder of The Grace Spot, an online ministry equipping women to break free from shame and find lasting freedom from pornography. She is the author of the forthcoming book, Restored: A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Pornography. Alice lives in Sydney with her husband, Lukas. To find out more about Alice and The Grace Spot, head to thegracespot.comAll ages being transformed together

Karen Baron and Libby Horton - Elective Co-Speakers

What does it look like for people of any age to be transformed by Jesus together? This elective will help inspire you to see children and young people in your church as co-workers in the harvest field. It will encourage you to look for opportunities to do everything, word or deed, in the name of Jesus (Col 3:17) with and for the younger generations in your care and in your community.

Limited Numbers

Karen Baron has a Spirit-driven passion for young people to be seen and valued as equal life participants and Kingdom partners! Over the past 30 years she has been active through her roles in church children’s ministry, public school teaching, parenting and for nearly 12 years as Coordinator of ACT Christian Education In Schools (CEIS). Karen thrives on the challenge to reveal God’s love ‘as we go’ and of equipping others to do the same.

Libby Horton has worked for the creative children’s ministry Logosdor for the last 21 years. She helps coordinate the Children’s Ministry Network (CMN) in the ACT Region and is part of the National Leadership team for CMN. Libby has trained people in creative children’s ministry across four continents, and in Canberra has helped plant a weekly intergenerational afternoon church service.

CMS Canberra & Goulburn Mission in the Spotlight Dinner 2019

Please join us for the annual CMS Canberra and Goulburn Mission in the Spotlight Dinner. This is a unique opportunity for Christians across Canberra and Goulburn to hear from God’s word and engage with world mission. It will be a wonderful chance for you to grow your heart for world mission over dinner and fellowship.

This year, Rev Canon Peter Rodgers (International Director for CMS Australia) will be helping us to explore the theme, ‘An Asia that knows Jesus: God at work in surprising places’.

Peter served as a CMS missionary in Indonesia with his wife Marcelle from 1991, teaching New Testament at the local theological college in Sulawesi. After more than ten years in Indonesia, Peter and Marcelle returned to Sydney so that Peter could become rector of St Stephen’s, Newtown. Peter was appointed International Director and CEO of CMS Australia in 2011.

We would love for you to join us for an exciting night with opportunities to ask questions and think deeply about God’s mission in Asia.

At Goulburn Christian Life Centre

No Cost
Click here for More Information or call John on 0417 045 920 to book.

“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion.” -Isaiah 8: 18 (NASB)

Goulburn Christian Life Centre are excited to bring you the Watoto Children’s Choir performing their brand new album, “We Will Go”.
As the children share their personal stories and present live worship music from Uganda, you’ll see firsthand the power of God’s love transforming lives around the world.
Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s most vulnerable children and women.
Other than coming to Africa yourself, what better way to learn about all the good work God is doing through Watoto than by meeting the children and hearing their stories.
This is a free event with a love offering at the end of the event.


Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s most vulnerable children and women. On almost every day of the year, the choir is performing somewhere in the world. That means thousands of people get to meet some of our future leaders. People see their smiles and are embraced by their hugs.

The choir serves many purposes. It raises awareness about the work of Watoto globally. It’s also leadership training for our children, providing a strong sense of responsibility while experiencing different cultures. More importantly, it’s a way we share our faith with people around the world. We see thousands of people connect with the love of Jesus and what He’s done in our children’s lives.

Other than coming to Africa yourself, what better way to learn about all the good work God is doing through Watoto than by meeting the children and hearing their stories.

GOULBURN ALPHA COURSE

ALPHA JULY2019.png

Goulburn “ALPHA Course”

What is ALPHA?

Alpha offers the opportunity to do just that – in an informal, friendly and open environment. No one can force anyone to believe anything, we've found over the years that if we express radical hospitality and let guests be themselves, lives will be transformed.

You're welcome to come to the first Alpha to see what it's like, before you commit to the next nine sessions. Each week starts with a talk that looks at different questions centred around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. We run Alpha several times a year in different locations and it always involves some key elements: food, a talk and good conversation. You're free to listen, learn, discuss, discover and ask anything.

WHEN: 6pm-9pm, Thursday evening from 25th July until 26th September.

WHERE: Goulburn Baptist Church, 164 Bourke Street, Goulburn

COST: Free

Youth - CMS Camp MMM

CMS CAMP MMM SLIDE UPDATE 8APRIL2019.png

Youth - CMS Camp MMM is a great opportunity for students in years 7 through 12 to spend a week in God’s word, thinking through mission and God’s plan for this world. Apart from regular Bible study, there are a number of activities throughout the week and a special cross-cultural experience in the middle of the week. MMM runs over two weeks in the June/July school holidays.

8th - 19th July 2019

Senior High (Years 10–11 & study camp for Year 12) 8 – 12 July 2019
Junior High (Years 7–9) 15 – 19 July 2019

Registrations are open (click here)

At Katoomba

The theme for our Youth and Children’s ministries in 2019 is ‘Sharing hope in a hopeless world’.

Each week campers will be challenged as God speaks to them through his word. Campers will hear from current missionaries, share in prayer together, reignite past friendships and make new ones, have a lot of fun, and eat some great food up in the beautiful (but chilly!) Blue Mountains.

Our speakers this year are Peter Blair for years 10–12, and Chris Jones for years 7–9.

Peter Blair

Peter is originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, but moved to Sydney to study at Moore Theological College in 2016. He is married to Jodie, who teaches at St Andrew’s Cathedral School. For the past two years, he has worked at Two Ways Ministries, and served at Unichurch UNSW.  After university, he spent two years working for BCMS Crosslinks, leading their camps, student, and youth ministries, and another two years working at All Saints’ Church, Belfast. He hopes to return to Northern Ireland in 2020 to evangelise and equip students to live boldly and single-mindedly for Christ.

If you have any questions about Camp MMM, please contact the Youth and Children’s Coordinator at yandc@cms.org.au.
