Why a JCMA Conference?

JCMA was established in 2004 to:

  1. to draw together members of the Abrahamic faiths in mutual respect, seeking to appreciate each other and to heal ancient wounds, pledging mutual support in times of stress and engaging in dialogue in all its aspects;
  2. to organise conferences and other activities for the purpose of learning about each other’s faith, of sharing personal experience, and of discussing issues of concern within their own faith communities and within the broader society.

The Annual JCMA Conference is modelled on the annual residential conference of Jews, Christians and Muslims in Europe and is supported by major religious institutions within each faith community. The conference is held in a relaxing environment conducive to both personal reflection and warm, open meetings and discussions.

Who is it for?

  • JCMA conferences are intended for people of all ages who are members of one of the three Abrahamic faith communities, Judaism, Christianity and Islam and is supported by major religious institutions within each faith community.
  • Participants include men and women, young and old, lay and clergy, academics and students, and those working in community or welfare roles.
  • All participants are asked to agree to the JCMA Principles of Dialogue http://jcma.org.au/priniciples-of-dialogue/
  • All participants, speakers and discussion group leaders are asked to attend the full conference from 2pm on Sunday 6 August to 5:30pm on Monday 7 August. For most participants this will include residential accommodation overnight.
