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.
Registration is a 2-part process. Please let us know your initial numbers then 2 weeks out we will ask you to confirm your student and staff numbers.

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."
"The students have come back with a unity and vigour to live and speak the gospel with boldness. Last week, they were timid"
"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."
