Supporting mission is important at CAC. It is our privilege to participate in and support mission work both in Australia and overseas. We support our mission partners financially, through encouragement and most importantly, in prayer. Here are some of our partners:-
Geoff and Robyn – CMS Malta
Geoff, Robyn and their three children have been serving with CMS in Malta since 2008.
Geoff has three roles; he is the minister of a church, a student worker at University and a lecturer at a Bible College. As well as supporting Geoff in his roles, Robyn works at building ongoing relationships within the community, as well as looking after their three children.
CMS is a fellowship of churches and individuals who together send out missionaries across cultures to proclaim the gospel if Jesus and to encourage his people. (www.cms.org.au)
Graham and Sue Schabel – Global Recordings Network, Sydney
Graham currently works as a electronics technician and computer support engineer at Global Recordings Network (GRN) in Sydney. His current role is supporting both field and office personnel with technical equipment used in the recording and editing of the gospel messages in many varied contexts. This includes microphones, recording equipment and editing computer setups in use in many countries.
Graham also plays a part in distributing the recordings. He is keenly involved with the preparation of the audio and videos files available for download. Graham has been serving with GRN since July 2008.
Since 1939, Global Recordings Network has been developing the Gospel in audio and audio-visual formats for distribution to oral speaking people groups around the world. They have produced recordings in around 6,000 languages. Many of these are the least reached language groups in the world.
Audio visual materials are a particularly powerful evangelism medium as they communicate the gospel in story format suitable for oral learners. Recordings can be downloaded free of charge from the GRN website (www.globalrecordings.net)
Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook Christian Education Association
As a church we strongly believe in supporting Christian education at our local high schools. The Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook Christian Education Association (PHCCEA) provides Special Religion Education (SRE) at both Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook Technology High Schools. (www.phccea.org.au). CAC provides both financial and prayer support to the PHCCEA.

Peter Murphy serves as the SRE teacher at Cherrybrook Technology High School.

Rick and Jen and their three boys are serving with Pioneers in a small but growing Christian International School in Arusha, Tanzania. They are both teachers working in a school that has a mix of students including missionary children and local Tanzanians. Pioneers is a mission organisation passionate about reaching people who have the least opportunity to hear of God’s love. (www.pioneers.org.au)
Rural Mission – Barraba, NSW
Cherrybrook Anglican (CAC) has been partnering with St Laurence Anglican Church in Barraba NSW since 2008. Each year during the September school holidays, a team from CAC travelled to the NSW country town for a week of evangelistic mission. Specific events focussed on outreach to Seniors, a children’s holiday program, as well as men’s, women’s and youth gatherings. Many friendships have been formed over the years. After 10 years of partnering in mission together, CAC will send its final team in October 2018.
