Convention 2020 has been designed to respond to the challenges of meeting together during the pandemic. Convention 2020 will have smaller gatherings across South Australia and an online business meeting for its formal component. 

Convention Gatherings are as follows:

Redcliffes Campsite for worship followed by lunch and Convention meeting


At these smaller events there will be an opportunity to receive details of the review that Churches of Christ SA has undertaken and how that is informing the future direction for the movement. Each gathering will be the same so you need to only attend one.

If you know which Convention Gathering you wish to attend now, please RSVP to the State Office. There will be further correspondence and opportunity to RSVP for these gatherings in the future.

The Churches of Christ SA & NT Inc Annual General Meeting will occur on Thursday December 10th at 7pm via Zoom. Delegate packs for the Annual General Meeting will go out in the last week of October and will include Board nominations, meeting papers, reports and voting information. The packs will also include the details for joining the Annual General Meeting online as a delegate, and how to join as an observer of the meeting.

GMP Safe Water September 2020

Safe Water September

Record Fundraising by a National Community

In a year where a lot of people and a lot of organisations have been forced to look inward and scramble to keep the lights on, churches and individuals around Australia have demonstrated that unprecedented change and upheaval will not stop them from having a positive Kingdom impact on the world around them.

More than 300 people across more than 50 churches, schools, and clubs took the Safe Water September challenge this year, and drank just water for the month of September to raise money for life-changing safe water projects in rural Zimbabwe and Vanuatu through Global Mission Partners and Churches of Christ Overseas Aid.

This year the national community raised $177 666, breaking fundraising records for the second year in a row. By giving up all their non-water drinks like coffee, tea, and juice and inviting their peers, family, and friends to donate, challenge takers have raised enough to provide easy access to safe drinking water to approximately 8,000 people in remote and vulnerable communities.

A lack of access to safe drinking water has profound impacts on communities across the world. Clean water for drinking and washing is the easiest way to dramatically reduce illness in communities, particularly in children and infants. With easy access to clean water, people—particularly women and girls—no longer have to walk more than 30 minutes each day to get water for their families. That time can be re-invested into their families, their education, their farms, and their businesses.

The water projects funded by Safe Water September are community-led in partnership with Showers of Blessing, Zimbabwe, and the Conference of Churches of Christ in Vanuatu. You can find out more at [safewaterseptember.org.au](http://safewaterseptember.org.au/).

The embody and Global Mission Partners team would like to extend a massive thank you to all the churches and individuals around South Australia who participated in the challenge. Well done, and enjoy your drinks!
