Bible – ‘Sharing the burden’ 2 John & 3 John

'God’s plan of reconciliation is global in scope - it’s next door, and it’s only over when Jesus returns. He’s not back yet so He’s not done yet. He’s included us in His family and His work. And it’s better together. Mission and evangelism are stitched into the fabric of being a church family and the joy of partnering in God’s mission to the nations. Of course there’s work to be done. And of course we are to do it together. Kristan Slack will help us dig into the letters of 2 John and 3 John to see how the priority of turning up in person is tied in with the Good News about Jesus and sharing the burden of mission together.

Mission – A town like Alice

Alice Springs has been in the news a lot this year. Alice Springs Anglican Pastor, Kristan Slack reckons there’s an untold bigger and better story to be told about Alice. It’s a story about what God has been doing, is doing and we pray will continue doing. Find out how we can all be part of this great story that’s still being written. Greg Anderson will lift our eyes to some of the challenges and opportunities of mission in the Northern Territory as we also meet and hear from some of the many SA/NT BCA Field Staff.

Spotlight BCA

Be informed and enthused as BCA National Director, Greg Harris shines the spotlight on some of the new and developing mission opportunities with BCA in 2024 and beyond.


Life and ministry has taken Men in Boats in different directions over the past few years. Now back living in the same town, Men in Boats reunite for the first time in quite a while to sing new songs and old favourites to the great God of mission.
