Conferences

Christian Union runs two conferences each year, and takes part in a nation-wide conference in December.

  • Pre-season Training is our warm up to first semester.  We get together each Monday night in February to read the Bible, listen to it be taught, think about what it’s saying and be trained in explaining it.  This is a great time to get to know people and bond with them.  First years are especially welcome!
  • Mission Launch is a day conference held to kick off our Easter Mission. It runs in late March this year, and is a great way to begin or deepen Christian fellowship at uni, hear some great things from the Bible, and think about living for Jesus on campus in the coming months.
  • Mid-Year Conference (MYC) is a major highlight of the CU calendar. Run in the last week of July each year (just before semester 2 kicks off), this is a full week to spend diving into God’s word, wrestling with its implications for life, hanging out with other great Christian brothers and sisters, and enjoying God’s creation.
  • National Training Event (NTE) is a conference in early December each year that includes students coming from all over Australia, and often even further afield. A 5-day conference is held in Canberra, preceded and followed by another few days spent helping a church run a short mission in their local area—wherever in Australia that might be!NTE photo
