We host roughly four events per year to encouraging thinking, reflection and conversations around the complexities of poverty, the links to our Australian lifestyle choices and how our responses to poverty and injustice should be shaped by the gospel. We'd love to have your company at any of them.
Winston joined us for the film night in March and said: “Amos Australia’s film night ‘Under the Stars’ was a powerful experience for the viewer, exploring how international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa might be undermining the very communities they aim to benefit. The night kicked off with people mingling together, sharing stories over pizza. It was great to meet other people who also wanted to be more informed of how people living in poverty are affected by organisations. The speakers at the event were invested in what they were saying, and the Harry Hunter Rehabilitation Centre was an appropriate location to engage with the documentary. I would highly recommend what Amos Australia has to offer in it’s quest to bring the hearts of poor people into the hearts of the rich.”
We had a number of events lined up for this year, but they've been temporarily shelved due to COVID-19. However, we're currently working on some alternative ways of connecting with people, and as soon as we've finalised those, we'll pop the details up here. If you'd like to receive updates about what we're hoping to do, get in touch with us here. We'd love to have you along!
AMUC is a fantastic, week-long urban 'mission trip' in Perth hosted by Scripture Union and TEAR Australia. From the 5th to the 9th of October, participants visit various agencies in Perth who serve vulnerable people, and engage with topics like incarnational mission and the intersection between the gospel and culture. While this event isn't hosted by Amos Australia, our executive officer, Clinton Bergsma, will be attending and facilitating a number of the workshops during the week.
