Ministries

As Jesus' love transforms us, we are compelled to share His healing love with our neighbours. Alliance ministries show best how we share the practical message of Christ’s love with the marginalised, the poor, the wounded, and the sick at home and around the world

Alliance Short Term Mission Exposure Trips

Regular Alliance Short Term Mission Exposure Trips to visit our Alliance ministries overseas are organised by our local churches and the AY team

You’re invited to be a part of an Alliance Mission Exposure Trip to one of our Active Alliance Fields as we seek to expand our knowledge and experience of the great variety of cultures that we in the C&MA family minister in world-wide.

If you would like to be involved in any of these opportunities please contact your local church, contact the AY Team or drop us an email to express your interest.  

Mission Exposure Trips are a win-win for eternity. Participants typically return from the field with a deepened Christian commitment to mission while their efforts complement long-term Alliance ministries and workers.

Alliance Youth

The Alliance Youth seeks to assist and support Alliance churches in the encouraging, equipping and empowering of their next generation.

Specifically, we endeavour to encourage Alliance young people to BELONG to God’s family and to that of the C&MA; equip them so that they may BELIEVE with conviction that Jesus Christ is Saviour, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King; and empower them so that they may BECOME whatever God has called them to be.

Please go to the Alliance Youth website www.allianceyouth.org.au for more information.

The Alliance Institute for Mission

The Alliance Institute for Mission offers specific mission and pastoral training courses for intercultural engagements.

As a member of the Australian College of Ministries (ACOM) the Alliance Institute for Mission was established with the ongoing commission to manage and facilitate both undergraduate and postgraduate award programs in the field of Christian mission and Pastoral ministry.

As a practical institution, our goal is to prepare students academically, but to do so in transformational contexts through which students learn what it is to grow with God in mission. With both cross-cultural spiritual formation and international placements as key elements of the Institute’s offerings, graduates will be effectively equipped to take the message of the Gospel to wherever God might call.

For details of all programs see the Alliance Institute for Mission web-site.

Alliance Workers can login and view AIM Prayer Book 2020 under Members -> Alliance Institute for Mission.

Faith Promise for the Great Commission Fund

“This movement stands for a spirit of self-sacrifice, adjustment, adaptation and single-hearted love for people. We are called to a spirit so possessed with one supreme object, to gain men and women for Christ, that it sweeps over every other consideration in its overmastering purpose of love."      - AB Simpson


The C&MA is committed to sending, partnering and releasing workers to provide access to, and to preach the gospel to all nations.

The Great Commission Fund is our main funding source for the salaries and/or living allowances of the majority of our international workers and partnerships.

It also provides for our national workers, our training and administration needs.

In addition, approved projects (designated funds) provide for the needs of a specific area of ministry or opportunity in a particular region.

It comprises of the Faith Promise and the National Contribution Scheme (where each church contributes to our administration, leadership training through AIM and the Alliance Youth programs).

A unique, centralised support model, funded through our Faith Promise, allows our national leadership the most flexibility to be sensitive to God’s leading and to respond when doors open (or close) and opportunities present themselves.

Our “Faith Promise” for the Great Commission Fund primarily supports:

   - Our international mission workers,

   - Our local mission workers,

   - Our mission partnerships,

   - Our professionals (Some of our workers who are Alliance Professionals overseas are self-funded and work in partnership with our C&MA teams.

   - New church plants,

   Also supplemental support for:

   - Training of new workers through our Alliance Institute for Mission,

   - National Leadership of the President and Board through the National Office.

As a Mission with Churches, the C&MA depends upon the generous and sacrificial giving of our family of churches in Australia and donors who wish to see that all nations are reached with the gospel.

C&MA On Mission Prayer

Our Alliance "On MIssion" Prayer:

Our Father, we long for you! Come, transform and enable us by your empowering presence to be people who pray.

We pray for people without access to the gospel. We pray for Jesus' presence in our lives that we may be growing in our walk with you, and growing in our showing of your empowering presence.

We pray we will communicate the gospel with the Sprit's power, both in life and in world.

We pray for unity among our family of believers, unity of purpose and unity in fellowship in our Alliance family, unity to work with other like-minded mission-focused people.

In Jesus' Name, Amen

Deeper Life Seminars

 Deeper Life Part 2: Weekends 2022 will be announced soon

Come and join together to encourage our Alliance DNA on the Deeper Life .

Overview:         (There is no need to have attended session 1)

Our Deeper Life Seminars bring to our focus one of the central pillars of the teaching of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.

It is often said that the C&MA is a movement focusing on the Deeper Life and Mission. That is true. Our relationship and walk with Jesus effects all aspects of our lives, including our desire to be on mission. At these gatherings we will be making a strategic life investment together that will further strengthen and enable you to live out your deeper walk with God.

You need a healthy soul to be a healthy, fully-functioning disciple. You need a healthy soul to be a healthy, fully-functioning leader. Our stories have the power to reveal the events that have shaped and wounded us, lies that bind us, strongholds that haunt us, bitterness and anger that eat away at us; and the roots to our troubling sin patterns over, perhaps, for all of our adult lives. We are going to examine what it takes to have and maintain a healthy soul, and how our story powerfully impacts our relationships and current circumstances. 

Our time together:  

Saturday 9:00am-4:00pm we will gather for prayer, teaching and practical ministry. 

Sessions will include:

How the Lord helps us to deal with:

  • Caring for our souls: Family Sin Patterns
  • Caring for our souls: Healing Wounds
  • Caring for our souls: Overcoming Fear
  • Caring for our souls: Getting Free from Strong Holds through prayer
  • (after 3pm - a time of prayer for those who stay on)

Join us:  

We want to see every believer set free and enabled to live the deeper life and mission walk that Dr. Simpson spoke of.

These Deeper Life: Caring for your Soul Weekends will encourage us to experience an "abundant life" walk with God, freed up from many of the things that weigh us down and trip us up, and encourage us to truly be free indeed! 

The weekend is designed to help you experience more of God by intentionally exploring what may be holding you back from a flourishing life with Him.

Regardless of where you’re at in your journey with Jesus, we believe He always has more layers of personal freedom for us if we will courageously follow His gentle leadership.  

This is a weekend that will deeper your walk with Jesus !

“… let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.  

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus…” Hebrews.12:1-2: 

"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36

 The speakers will be Rev Ken Graham, President C&MA Australia and Rev Dr Peter Laughlin, Dean of the Alliance Institute for Mission (Academic Team Leader ACOM)
