The Australian SCM recently held its National Conference from June 30 to July 3, 2008 at the Waratah Lodge, Katoomba, NSW, Australia.
Around 16 participants attended the conference as they all aim to achieve the conference’s objective of increasing links and sense of community with in the national movement as well as discussing and reflecting on the theme ‘What is Church?’
Sharing about our experiences of church with SCMers of different backgrounds and Christian traditions was exciting and informative.
A combination of bible studies and themed sessions such as ‘Church and Gender’ and Global Church – WSCF sharing, as well as informal discussions over meals, enabled us to approach the theme from many different angles.
The General Committee Meeting following the conference was also successful.
