We are an arm of Australian Baptist Ministries that raises awareness of justice issues and mobilises churches to speak out on them. Churches are encouraged to adopt one or more campaigns per year and use the resources we provide to learn about the issue, act on what they learn, and participate in campaign advocacy actions.

Boundless Plains Campaign (Refugees)

Boundless Plains Campaign (Refugees)

The international community has promised to provide protection to all who flee persecution, yet is failing to deliver on its promise. We are calling on the Federal Government to increase the number of refugees it resettles, to work towards a regional framework for processing asylum seeker, and to end the practise of issuing Temporary Protection Visas.

Domestic violence

Domestic violence

Every week in Australia a woman is killed by her partner. Many others are physically and emotionally abused. In November we will launch a campaign to raise awareness in the churches, equip church leaders to respond well, and call our government to make more safe refuge spaces available and to provide an annual progress report to Parliament. We will be partnering with the NSW Baptist Public Engagement Group and Baptistcare.

Pray for Justice

Jesus identified justice, mercy and faithfulness as three dimensions of being in the world that should be a high priority for us (Matthew 23:23). A Just Cause’s prayer resource is designed to help you build a concern for justice into the DNA of your church life. We identify key dates in the Australian calendar that have a justice focus, such as Earth Hour and Refugee Week, and prepare resources that enable churches to pray around the focus of those dates. This means your church will be praying around the issues congregation members are talking about in their homes and workplaces or hearing about in local media.

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.
