Toowoomba Conference 2017


Thank you to everyone who attended CMS Toowoomba Conference 2017! We'll be back next year with more excellent gospel ministry teaching.

Shame, honour, the gospel and mission

Many non-western cultures are based on the values of shame and honour. Shame and honour were also dominant features in New Testament cultures. Understanding shame and honour not only gives us insight into the New Testament, it also equips us better to engage other non-western cultures with the gospel.

Mission Talks from CMS Missionaries

Getting it wrong. Getting it right... the tightrope in communicating to the Glory of God. Hear from Keith Birchley and T how they walk this tightrope, as they explain and explore the practicalities of sharing the gospel in shame and honour cultures of PNG and South East Asia.
