Events happening across Australia
14 Jun, 2017
Over the next few months, Compassion events are happening across Australia and we would love you to come along. Below are the details of upcoming events. If you’d like more information, please contact the local offices (listed below).
Compassion Advocate Training: Darwin 5 August, 10am-1pm DoubleTree by Hilton, 122 The Esplanade, Darwin, NT
Are you passionate about helping the poor but not sure of the next step? Become a Compassion Advocate and join a community of like-minded individuals raising awareness and support for children living in poverty.
How you advocate is up to you!
Being a Compassion Advocate can be as simple as chatting to your friends, family and church about Compassion, making music or art that raises awareness of children living in poverty, or volunteering at an event to promote Compassion’s Child Sponsorship Program.
Whatever you chose, you’ll be equipped, inspired and empowered to make a difference.
We would love you to join us at our next training session.
RSVP by 28 July here.

IDMC Conference Sydney 2017
Dayspring Church, 15 Salisbury Avenue, Castle Hill How do we redeem the marketplace for Jesus? Where do the majority of men and women spend the majority of their time interacting with a majority of the lost world? In the workplace. Yet few Christians hear sermons relating biblical principles to their work life.
IDMC Conference 2017 picks up the crucial theme of marketplace discipleship. If you want to redeem the marketplace for Jesus, this is the conference for you. With guest speaker Richmond Wander, special sessions for pastors and leaders, a Young Adult conference and a full children’s program, the whole family can attend.
RSVP: Early bird ticket prices are available until 31 May; learn more here.
Keys for Creating Culture
20 July, 9am-4pm The Rocks Church, 26 Cecil Avenue, Cannington
The culture of any workplace is not just a matter of what we say; it is how we relate to one another. Culture affects the engagement and commitment of our congregations, volunteers and employees. The application of Biblical principles in the relationships within our organisations presents living Christianity, which will impact the people in the world around us.
As part of our ongoing commitment to empower the local church, Compassion Australia and 98Five are pleased to present Keys to Creating Culture. This one-day seminar will feature input from John Finkelde, pastor and founder of ‘Grow a Healthy Church’, Tim Hanna, pastor and current CEO of Compassion Australia, and Karen Robinson, founding Director of Mango Group business consultancy.
Make sure you join us at The Rocks to be equipped and encouraged in the leadership of your ministry.
Tickets are available here.
