Start your year spiritually refreshed

At CMS Summer School, you’ll enjoy world-class Bible teaching, diverse and encouraging missionary sessions, amazing music, and opportunities to grow your heart for God’s mission.

In 2022, Dr Andrew Shead, Moore College’s Head of Old Testament, will be teaching us from the Psalms. It will be a time where we reflect on the journey of our Saviour into glory, and consider what it means to walk in the path of his righteousness.

In addition to this deep engagement with God’s word, there will many opportunities to hear from CMS missionaries and guest speakers about how God is building his kingdom around the world.

CMS Summer School plans for 2022

CMS Summer School plans for 2022

We understand there is something about gathering together in person as God’s people that you just cannot replace with a video or livestream!

This coming January we long to be singing God’s praises together in Katoomba with you and over one thousand other brothers and sisters – with many more connecting online. And that is what we are praying will be possible.

Pending COVID-19 restrictions, we’re planning a hybrid online/face-to-face week of Bible teaching and fellowship, focusing on God’s mission.

Seating for adults in Katoomba will be restricted to just over 1,000, instead of the usual 3,000, in line with our COVID-19 Safety Plan and anticipating the necessity of adhering to a two square metre rule. We will be closely monitoring rules and restrictions to ensure our gathering is in line with the public health orders.

Youth and Children’s programs are being planned for a fantastic face-to-face conference, also assuming a two square metre rule.

Applications to attend the in-person conference are set to open mid-August, with a month-long window before positions are allocated automatically in September. The automatic allocation system will prioritise those who apply to attend five or more morning sessions.

Places for each of the evening sessions will be available separately, as we’re planning to run these in a new topical format. Please pray that God would establish these plans as we continue preparing for an encouraging week of Bible and mission!

A new pricing structure for adults

This year’s Summer School pricing reflects the need to provide an online conference in addition to the option for face-to-face attendance, as restrictions allow.

For all adults, there will be an initial $50 conference fee. This will give all registrants full access to the online conference.

Tickets to attend Summer School in-person will be charged at $10 per session, with morning and evening sessions being available separately.
