Section 6: Vision of Future
We now have the opportunity of making all our conventions and our huge sermon library available to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world.
We are giving thanks to God
The Bible says that faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17; Galatians 3:5). But hearing what? Hearing God, hearing His word, hearing His promises. It also says that to hear is to live:
A Special Opportunity
Presently, KCC ministers to over 15,000 people, including more than 6,000 high schoolers. Dozens of sermons are preached every year at conventions and all recorded in video and audio. We also possess a huge catalogue of sermons that have been preached, and made fruitful, over decades of conventions. We realise that all this present us with an enormous opportunity in a digital world.
- We now have the opportunity of making all of KCC’s sermon ‘library’ available to everyone and anyone, at anytime, anywhere in the world. Our hope is that God will use it for His glory in the lives of thousands of people.
- We have the opportunity to track with over 6,000 high schoolers across the course of their Christian lives – from school into adulthood and well beyond – helping to feed them spiritually, support and encourage them, and see them persevere.
- We have the opportunity to reach out across language barriers: subtitled videos of KCC sermons plus transcripts translated into languages such as Cantonese, Mandarin, Farsi, Arabic and more. This is a way to help individuals and communities of people for whom English is not their first language, benefit from KCC sermons.
- We have the opportunity to help Christians in remote and regional areas and overseas gather together: with Live Stream we can make the KCC convention ministry available to those who have never been able to get to Katoomba or Sydney.
Over the next several years, KCC will be investing in improving its conventions on every front to see them continue to gather Christians together. In addition to this, we will be investing in digital platforms dedicated to KCC’s content — its Bible talks — such as our new mobile app, Livestream and more. We see these as key ways to extend the reach of the existing ministry, and make it more useful, fruitful and effective for the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. Most especially, we see this as a key investment in 6,000+ high schoolers, and in the future of the KCC ministry as a whole.
If you believe that this is a God-honouring vision, then please support us in it — especially through the challenges 2020-21 are presenting. You can do that today, by praying for us, volunteering to be part of the ministry, and giving financially to this appeal.

2020 Ministry Partners
We are conscious that this year has been a difficult one, not just for KCC, but also for many ministries and organisations.
We wanted to say a big THANK YOU to our partners this year, who have committed to continuing their support and partnership with us even in this time. Please visit, support and read more about our partner organisations below.
The sudden shutdown of businesses across Australia, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, has pushed many families into poverty. “People who may never have experienced financial hardship in the past or never had to introduce themselves to welfare support or charities … have suddenly found themselves out of work and in need,” says Bill Farrand, Anglicare Community Chief Operating Officer.
The health and economic crisis is also impacting heavily on families and individuals who were already vulnerable – those in low-income jobs and people facing mental illness, domestic violence and other stresses in their homes. “Anglicare has always been about supporting people who fall through the cracks,” Bill says. “And there are more of those people at the moment – there are more cracks and there are more people.” With your support, Anglicare will increase vital food and financial assistance to help our communities through this crisis. Because Anglicare is built for times like these.
Please give what you can to help. Thank you.
