Reaching the nations in Australia

The nations are on our doorstep. How will we respond? How will we reach these people with the gospel?

Australia is changing

The 2021 census tells us Australia’s cultural landscape is changing significantly. Where do we start as we begin to think about reaching all of Australia with the gospel?

Over 7 million Australians are born overseas.

That’s almost one-third of the population. Since 2016, we’ve seen more people from India, Nepal, the Phillipines and Vietnam come to Australia.

Between 2016 and 2021, Punjabi speakers increased by 107,000 people. This increase reflects the increase in migrants from India.

Between 2016 and 2021, the number of people affiliated with Islam  increased by over 34% (200,000 people).
