Living out the Christian faith in today’s world is not always easy for our young people. In a world of selfies, identity politics and ‘fake news’, Bible Society’s Masterclass will inspire, challenge and equip Christian students by tackling the big questions: Does the Christian faith make sense? What does the Bible have to say about issues in our world? And what does it mean to live a bold Christian life that makes a real difference?
Masterclass is a one-day event for students in Years 9-11. Throughout the day, students will hear engaging talks from three leading speakers:
a foundational talk that builds confidence in the Bible, a missional talk that encourages students to live out their faith, and a topical talk that explores contemporary issues from a Biblical perspective.
Masterclass also includes a popular Q&A session, giving students the freedom to ask our panel of speakers the searching questions about the Christian faith they’ve always wanted to ask.
This is a free event, wholly funded by Bible Society supporters.

Mike Frost - Living missionally
Here's what some recent attendees had to say about Masterclass:
"Engaging topics, each speaker resonated a message-very funny and intriguing. Challenges faith and acknowledges the fact that God, Jesus and the Bible are real and factual."
"A wonderful environment in which we heard from three extremely wise speakers about relevant topics in today's society and prevalent in leading a full Christian life."
"Thought provoking, blew my mind, very positive environment and a good place to meet other high school Christian students. Fun, good speakers, good food too. Could not think of any negatives."
