CoMission

Credo’s off-campus mission teams.

Christ Beyond UTS

Credo is a university mission, and through CoMission: we help make disciples of all nations by learning and serving together in off-campus mission teams.

During the Summer and Winter periods, Credo joins with other Christian organisations to contribute to and experience God’s surprising global work.  Teams range in size from a handful to over a dozen, and labour in the Lord together from 4 solid days, and sometimes up to 3 weeks!

If you struggle to go out of your comfort zone in volunteering for the sake of others, there is no better place to experience the power of the gospel than applying to join a Credo CoMission.

We are currently taking expressions of interest for our Summer and Winter CoMission teams, living residentially and partnering in different types of churches around Sydney, in their Christmas outreach.


Winter 2024

Those that are keen to serve will be expected to have a working with children check, complete Cru’s registration and safe ministry process and attend 1-3 meetings in the lead up to camp.

Come as servants and learners, open to meeting new people.
