What are the dates of CMS Summer School? How do I apply?
CMS Summer School 2021 is now running as an online-only conference for adults.
It is with sadness that we are no longer able to proceed with an in-person conference for CMS Summer School in 2021. As a result of the recent COVID-19 outbreak and the tighter restrictions that have been introduced as a result, it is no longer feasible to proceed safely with plans for an on-site program.
Online-only registration is now available for the cost of $100 per booking. If multiple families are watching from the same location, please include them in the same booking.

What are my options if I registered to attend Summer School in person?
Your registration has been automatically switched to an online-only registration. You will be able to livestream main sessions (with Bible talks and missionary sessions) on Saturday night and from Sunday–Thursday. You will also have access to a selection of pre-recorded mission sessions, with talks from our international speaker, CMS Australia speaker, and CMS missionaries.
What happens if I register for the online-only conference?
Register for the online-only version of CMS Summer School and in December you will receive a link to stream the full conference. Main sessions (with Bible talks and missionary sessions) and mission sessions (with other speakers and missionaries) will be available to view during Summer School.
Will I receive a CMS Summer School pack?
Unfortunately, we are unable to mail out a Summer School pack to CMS Summer School 2021 attendees. A digital booklet with talk outlines will be available to download late December.
What are the new times for the Youth and Children’s programs?
It is with sadness that we have had to cancel the Youth and Children’s programs for CMS Summer School 2021. Our Youth and Children’s leaders will be providing resources to help families engage in global mission and teaching from the sermon on the mount.

Are refunds available if I am no longer able to attend Summer School?
We understand that there is a level of uncertainty around CMS Summer School 2021 and thus as a sign of good will, we will be providing full refunds for those who wish to withdraw their application at any time before 8 January 2021. Partial refunds will also be available given the changed format of the conference.
You can request a refund by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you choose not to accept a refund, your money will be allocated to the cost of running Summer School, however you can choose to have your registration fee allocated to a missionary you support instead. Simply email us advising us of a missionary you would like to support in this way.
Is there an info pack?
Detailed information about CMS Summer School 2021 will be available late December. Stay up to date at nswsummerschool.org.au/update.
Does my registration include accommodation and meals?
No, you must organise your own accommodation and meals.
How do I volunteer at CMS Summer School?
If you are able to serve at Summer School for a few days or the whole week, please let us know. As part of the Summer School application process there is a check box option to be contacted with more information about volunteering. Select the areas that you would be interested in serving and CMS will contact you.
All volunteers will be subject to selection criteria and must complete a declaration including signing and agreeing to comply with the CMS Code of Conduct.
