Associates Program

This special Wednesday morning program is for people over 50 who may have more time on their hands and who want to dig deeper biblically without the pressure of exams or assignments. You can come to one, a few, or ideally come to all 12! Each semester a different unit of study will be covered.

Our aim is for you to:

  • Deepen your knowledge of the Bible
  • Be encouraged in your walk with God
  • Be encouraged by how God is at work overseas and around Australia
  • Enjoy the warm fellowship and community of SMBC
  • Learn from great lecturers!
