Dear Friends

No doubt you’ve been seeing the escalating action the government, travel, sporting clubs, businesses and all areas of the community have been taking to slow the infection rate of COVID-19.

The Federal Department of Health has advised the cancellation of all non-essential gatherings of more than 500 people.  To that end, we are sorry to announce that our 2020 Children’s Ministry Conference, which falls under that instruction, is postponed until 2021.

We are very sorry.

Importantly, please note the following:

  1. Lord willing, the conference will now take place on Saturday 1 May, 2021. 
  2. Full refunds will be provided to people who’ve registered, including our out of Sydney ‘live streamers’.

With this unprecedented world event unfolding, we have a trustworthy Lord and Saviour. May each of us be prayerful about this virus and its implications. May we show Christ’s love and compassion for one another and shine his light to a dark world.

Again, I am very sorry about this postponement. Please don’t hesitate to contact Greg Swanton, General Manager or me for any clarification.

My God is so big: Helping kids discover all the character of God

God is loving and wrathful. He forgives and condemns. He finds delight in us and is grieved by us.

Our God is wonderfully big and complex - but not contradictory. Every part of his character is necessary and good. And our kids need to know him - all of him.

Join us at the SMBC 2020 Children's Ministry Conference and be encouraged in ways to help kids discover their BIG God!

The programs at each campus are identical in content, including the 'Under 5s' seminars. Each person chooses one 12.50pm seminar and one 2.25pm seminar.
