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.


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
