A Just Cause equips churches to understand, pray about, act on, and advocate around issues of justice. In 2017 we are focussing on the environment, refugees, and domestic violence. Feel free to look around this site, download resources, and send us a message via the contact page if you'd like to talk about how we can be of assistance to your church. We are a ministry of the Baptist churches of Australia.

Our Focus Areas

Boundless Plains Campaign (Refugees)

Boundless Plains Campaign (Refugees)

“Boundless Plains to Share”  is a campaign focusing upon Australia’s response to refugees and asylum seekers. It provides opportunities for your congregation to learn about the issue, incorporate concern for refugees into your worship, serve refugees and asylum seekers, and advocate for a change in policy. We recommend making this a focus leading into or out of Refugee Week (June 19-25).

A Beautiful World Campaign (Environment)

A Beautiful World Campaign (Environment)

A Beautiful World is our campaign to build environmental stewardship. It includes a 1-4 week program designed to help your church develop a biblically framed view of creation and to speak out for climate justice. You can run the campaign and its activities at any time during the year, but we suggest a one month intensive focus leading into or out of Earth hour (March 25) or during the “season of creation” (September). Campaign activities include participating in Earth Hour, signing Micah Australia’s Community Climate Petition, prayer around the planet, and opportunities to make your church eco-friendly.

A Beautiful World. Reframing Our Relationship to Creation

A Beautiful World. Reframing Our Relationship to Creation

We live in an era in which humankind is having a devastating impact on the planet. The climate is changing, wild animal populations are being decimated, extinction rates are at an all-time high, and the oceans are acidifying.  Should Christians care? In this short book and accompanying bible study guide we say “Yes”. A beautiful world offers a much needed corrective to layers of theological tradition that disconnect us from God’s heart for all he has created. Use it for a four week sermon series, small group bible study, or simply for your own reflection.

Available in hard copy (paperback) and digital versions.
