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.

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.

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.

ZERO to GOSPEL presented by the City Bible Forum, Canberra

How are those workplace conversations going?

Perhaps you've been working in a team and you have the desire for your work colleagues to know Jesus, but there never seems to be an appropriate opening for you to talk about him. Maybe you work in a team that is hostile or skeptical of Christianity and you aren't sure how to have a helpful conversation about Jesus. Come along and see that it is possible to generate respectful conversations that get to the gospel! Our keynote speaker, Revin Blanchard, will be sharing concrete examples and there will be ample time for Q&A.

The evening will begin with a meal at 6pm and we promise it won't run overtime so you'll have enough time to get ready for work on Wednesday.

Please take advantage of the early bird group discount by finding 2 others and register by 21 May!

Revin is a public servant who has worked at several different departments and has a passion for seeing people share the gospel.

Country KYCK Bonus.

Back in 2019!

At the last few KYCKs we raised money to help subsidise some of our KYCK friends.  In 2014, the Country KYCK Bonus was introduced for the first time and since then we've had over 400 youth come from the country - that's just amazing!  If your youth group travels from the ‘country’, we understand how much harder it is for you to come to KYCK.  We want to make it a little easier by giving you a little boost! 

We're excited to say that the KYCK Country Bonus will be BACK IN 2019! 

What's the bonus?
BONUS #1: $20 off per ticket if it's your group/church's first time at KYCK.
BONUS #2: $10 off per ticket if your group/church has been to KYCK before.

How do I get the KYCK Country Bonus?

STEP 1: If you think you are eligible to get this bonus, get your group leader to fill out the application form.
STEP 2: If you are eligible, you will receive an email with a discount code you can use online.

Sound easy?
Well it is!  But there are some conditions...

KYCK Country Bonus Terms and Conditions

  1. Funds for this Bonus are limited, so it's a first in, best dressed policy!

  2. Apply for the Country KYCK Bonus BEFORE you purchase your tickets.

  3. The Bonus will only be applied to the registration if the group leader pays for all the tickets. 

  4. Not all groups who apply will receive the Bonus.  You will receive an email from KCC within one week after your application regarding whether or not you are eligible.

  5. The discount code/s cannot be used by other groups or transferred to those who have not applied for the bonus. 

  6. A "new group" means that they have NOT attended KYCK in the past.

  7. A "group" can be a youth group or school group.

FAQs.

Who should attend KYCK?
KYCK is for people of high school age.  We encourage youth groups to attend, along with their leaders.
Every group must have at least one person who is over the age of 18 who will be supervising the group - unfortunately single registrations are not permitted. 
What if I'm not part of a youth group?
We encourage you to join the local youth group or ask your school friends to see if their youth group is attending KYCK so you can join them. Otherwise let us know and we will see if there are any youth groups attending from your area.
 
What is KYCK all about?
At KYCK we take Jesus seriously, we take the Bible seriously and we take holiness of life seriously.  Our hope is that as teenagers gather at KYCK, they will be impacted to follow Jesus in such a way that they look to eternity rather than wasting their lives on the temporal things of this world.  At KYCK 19 the focus again will be on challenging and equipping teens from the Bible to boldly live the Christian life.
 
How can I get involved?
We love it when people want to get involved with KYCK! There are a few ways you can do this. You can pray.  You can volunteer to help out with various parts of the weekend - e.g. as ushers, in the bookshop and serving morning tea etc.

If you're interested, head to the Volunteer page to let us know!

What is the KYCK weekend format?
The weekend is made up of a series of 6 Bible talks, interspersed with food breaks, free time and other organised activities.  Please visit our Program page for more information. 

Here's a snapshot of what to expect at KYCK this year!
6 life-changing Bible talks
Seminar on a youth relevant topic
Worship in song with Christian artists
Exposure to Christian organisations at the KYCK Fair
Opportunity to invite non-Christian friends to an evangelistic talk
 
How do we get to the convention site?
The Katoomba Christian Convention site is 110km west of Sydney at Katoomba. It is accessible by car (along the M4) or by train to Katoomba Station and a short taxi ride to the site.

The address is 119 Cliff Drive, Katoomba NSW 2780.
 
Can we organise our own accommodation? 
Yes!
Many groups like to organise their own accommodation for the weekend after they have missed out on KCC accommodation. There are plenty of houses around Katoomba where you can stay. If you're a small group and the KCC accommodation is booked out, why not partner up with another local youth group and share accommodation? It’s a great way to form new relationships and encourage each other!
 
Please see this list of offsite accommodation options to help!

COMING UP ON FRIDAY 1ST MARCH

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER SERVICE

WHEN: 10AM, FRIDAY 1ST MARCH
WHERE: ST SAVIOUR’S CATHEDRAL, GOULBURN
MORNING TEA AFTER SERVICE

World Day of Prayer is held on the first Friday in March each year across the world, in over 170 countries. World Day of Prayer which had its beginnings in the late 1800’s is about praying with, rather than for, our sisters of other races and nations. It is an ecumenical service that each denomination takes turns to host.

This year the service will be held at St Saviour's Anglican Cathedral, Goulburn on Friday 1st March at 10am followed by a morning tea.

The focus of prayer for World Day of Prayer moves to a different country each year. This year it is on Slovenia, a central European country surrounded by Italy to the west, Austria to the north, Hungary to the north-east, Croatia to the south and with an Adriatic Sea coastline.

CMS Canberra Mission Focus - February 2019

CMF-2019-PowerPoint-16x9.jpg

CMS Canberra Mission Focus

15th - 16th February 2019
Radford College
1 College St, Bruce ACT

About

CMS Canberra Mission Focus is an annual event run by CMS and local supporters in Canberra, where Christians gather together and focus on the enduring power of the gospel.

You will spend time being engaged, encouraged and challenged by CMS missionaries as they share stories about how God is reaching the nations with his word. It is a time to reconnect with friends and make new ones, meet and be inspired by missionaries, and be refreshed for the year ahead.

Theme and speaker

God’s mission to the nations is a glorious one. Lives are transformed. Hearts of stone are turned into hearts of flesh. And people all across the world find unity and fellowship through the Christ who saves.

And yet, on this side of Jesus’ return, life and ministry is messy. Family troubles are brought to light. Illnesses disrupt plans. Relationship breakdowns bring hardship. And people involved in ministry often battle tiredness, loneliness and depression. How do we fix our eyes on the glorious truth of Jesus when life feels so messy? What hope and encouragement can be found?

You are invited to CMS Canberra Mission Focus 2019 as we consider together the glory and the mess of gospel ministry. Mark Adams (Lecturer at SMBC and Pastoral Vice-Principal) will help us explore Revelation on Friday evening, and 2 Corinthians on Saturday. Come and be reminded of the God who promises to make all things new.

Missionaries

At Canberra Mission Focus 2019 we will have the privilege of hearing from and being encouraged by missionaries from various parts of the world:

  • Terry and Liz McCoy, having served in the Northern Territory

  • Matt and Samantha Archer, having served in Tanzania

  • Martin and Julie Field, serving in Argentina

  • Sam and Shan-Shan Chrisp, preparing to serve in Taiwan
