CMS Conference Centre is run by CMS (Church Missionary Society NSW & ACT). We are a fellowship of Christian people and churches committed to global mission. Our vision is to see a world that knows Jesus. We work with churches to set apart godly people as long-term cross-cultural gospel workers. Find out more…
The CMS Conference Centre has been a great blessing to the mission and vision of CMS for over 60 years. Thanks to the generous support of our fellowship, significant improvements have been made to our facilities including the addition of ensuites for all rooms, an extension of the main hall and the creation of a new meeting space. We are confident these facilities will be a blessing to the ongoing work of the CMS fellowship and all those who stay at our centre.
Operations at the CMS Conference Centre site are overseen by CMS NSW & ACT. CMS are committed to ensuring the effective running of the Centre and our office acts as the first point of contact for anyone visiting the site. We look forward to welcoming you and your group at the Centre soon.
If you would like to bring a group to the Conference Centre, we would love to hear from you.
