Covid-19 updates

CMS Summer School 2022 will be held online

Wednesday, 15 September 2021

CMS staff have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and the associated Government restrictions on large gatherings.

Sadly, considering current progress and the likely restrictions around large gatherings in January, we have made the decision to run CMS Summer School 2022 as an online-only conference.

It has been a challenge to plan a safe Summer School in line with possible restrictions that caters for our entire fellowship – adults, youth, and children alike.

We have considered many options, including the potential to run a conference for those who are vaccinated – if that was mandated by the Government in January 2022. Apart from the many contentious issues this would raise, our Youth and Children’s program is an essential part of CMS Summer School. Any vaccine passport style program that excluded our young people was not an option we were willing to pursue.

So, trusting our sovereign God, and yet also saddened by not being able to meet in person, we have chosen to move CMS Summer School 2022 entirely online.

The good news

The gospel of Jesus is shining through this pandemic and is still being proclaimed by CMS missionaries among the nations.

The creativity and perseverance of CMS missionaries to continue their ministry in the face of this pandemic speaks to the immeasurable value of the message we share, and the strength of God, who enables this message to take root in the hearts of those who are being saved!

These amazing stories will, God-willing, frame a fantastic week of deep engagement in God’s word and with his people, even though our fellowship will be online.

An online conference

We are still planning a week-long conference, with morning and evening sessions, and many opportunities to engage from the comfort of your COVID-safe venue.

Youth and Children’s programs will also be held online and will be provided free of charge!  We look forward to providing more details as we finalise our planning.

How to attend online

CMS Summer School online registrations are now open. Register now.

As we continue to plan for CMS Summer School online, please pray with us that God would work powerfully through the conference to grow our heart for global mission and to raise up more workers for his harvest field.
