Rev Bob Thomas MC editor of New Life listening intently to Raymond Chow Melbourne Chinese Media
2018 One Day in Melbourne on Saturday (19 May) held at the Craigieburn Salvation Army – proved to be another special occasion for missions.
This was the 3rd annual One Day in Melbourne for mission publication editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers ….
The focus was on the forgotten Christian media, all those small publications – mostly on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience.
The top of the line presenters gave their time at no cost so as to ensure such mission agencies received a thorough concordant.
33 mission delegates attended One Day in Melbourne

All those IT issues missions and small publications have every day – how iCloud works and what it is.

Peter Brookshaw - coordinating the small groups planning for 2019
The idea was to start and finish in order that interstate registrations could fly into Melbourne and fly home - all on the same day – One Day in Melbourne. We also realised others may make it a weekend in Melbourne and stay over for a myriad of purposes.

The sessions were interactive whereby during presentations for responses. This was particularly important for mission publication editors, writers, designers, social media mavens, authors, bloggers, self-publishers.
The focus on the forgotten Christian media, all those small publications – mostly today on-line, not the major denominational publications who already have their audience and therefore restrictions.
Over this entire week, as last year, the presentations will be published here in Christian Today.
