World Missions Conference

Going Beyond

14 - 22 August 2021

Our annual World Missions Conference is a week for us to focus on gospel mission outside our city and be a part of Going Beyond. 

The purpose of the conference is:

  • Build our biblical understanding of mission
  • Challenge us to be active in mission
  • Raise prayer and support for our Mission Partners

This year, our conference elements will be online and feature our five key Mission Partners. 

Our key Mission Partners for 2021 are:

  • MOCLAM - Online theological training for the Spanish-speaking world
  • The Bible Society - Equipping indigenous Bible translators
  • EE Hope For Kids in Ethiopia
  • Friends in Dubai
  • Bush Church Aid - supporting a new church plant in Jindabyne
  • African Enterprise
