The national advocacy and discipleship network resourcing Australian Baptists
Christian discipleship includes standing with the vulnerable, as Isaiah 1:17 compels us to seek justice for others. But how can we, as disciples and churches, respond to injustice? How can we carry a cry for justice from the foot of the cross to the halls of power, together?
Catalyst is a movement of Australian Baptists committed to seeking justice for all. We help churches and individuals learn about injustice and take action alongside other Christians.
Learn to understand injustice, as God sees it, through monthly discipleship and advocacy resource newsletters.
Take action against injustice through faith-based advocacy campaigns, youth group activities and church materials.
Connect with people across Australia through our national discussion group.
Receive training opportunities to equip and empower your church for action.
Help your youth and young adults explore our relationship with God’s Creation through energisers, activities, discussion guides and practical actions.
Catalyst is a collaboration of state and national Baptist agencies, powered by Baptist World Aid. Through Catalyst, this Baptist Advocacy Roundtable aims to resource churches and leaders within Australia’s Baptist Movement to cooperate: acting locally and influencing change nationally for people affected by the eight justice issues identified by the Baptist movement in Justice 2021: Toward A More Just Australia.
The national Catalyst network also resources you, your church and the national Baptist movement to respond rapidly to sudden crises requiring Australian action.
