Ephesians 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Mid-Year Conference is a fun and memorable week - the one week in the year you shouldn't miss! Students from UQ, QUT, USC and ACU get together for 5 days exploring God's Word together through Bible talks, seminars, small groups, electives and of course - free time! Each year we focus on a topic designed to help us make sense of our world, and what it means to live as the people of God. This year's topic is...
The Holy Spirit: understanding, encountering and loving the Spirit.
MYC brought me so much further in my understanding of the Bible and its meaning for my life. I've learnt so many amazing things about the power and relevance of God's word. I am so thankful for this opportunity.
Everyone's welcome at MYC! And the time away at MYC is a great chance to check out Jesus and Christianity further.
At MYC there's a strand of studies during the week for those who want to explore Christianity. There's plenty of time to ask any questions you have, and dig as deep as you want to.
"Exploring Christianity at MYC was exactly what I needed coming from a non-religious background. We started with the evidence of Jesus from outside the Bible before going deeper and this was incredibly helpful. On top of that I made friends I will have for a lifetime and couldn’t be more thankful!"
- Sophie, 3rd yr Biomedical Science

Watson Park offers options for Standard Room accommodation and Camping. Your registration fee will vary depending on which accommodation option you choose.
1. Standard Rooms are carpeted with bunk beds and sleep 4 to 6 people. Some rooms also have their own ensuites.
2. The Camping option is a little cheaper but you will need to organise your own tent and sleeping mattress. These campsites are unpowered, but there is a toilet block nearby.
We don't want finances to prevent anyone from coming to MYC. If you need financial assistance in order to make it to MYC, we encourage you to speak with one of your campus staffworkers.
On the other hand, if you are able, we also welcome additional donations. That would be a wonderful way to joyfully serve others and make it possible for them to come to MYC too. You can either do that as part of your registration below, or if you're a supporter of the ministry, a graduate, or simply a student who can't make it to MYC this year - you can make a donation using the form below.
To make a donation without registering, use the form below and in the field titled "I am a" select "Making a donation without registering"

The planning and running of MYC requires us to commit to certain costs in the weeks before Camp based on registration numbers.

On the other hand, if you have questions about how you're getting to MYC, contact your transport coordinator for your campus. The details for this person will be in your registration confirmation email.
In some rare cases people have reported that their payment has gone through, but they didn't receive a confirmation email completing their registration.
If you find yourself in this situation, simply contact Andrew Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he'll help you sort out your registration.
