Webinars & Recordings

Crossover runs a variety of webinars to make our resources more accessible for Baptist Church leaders around Australia. The topics include a range of practical skills (like how churches can use facebook effectively) and support and discussion topics – like bi-vocational and church planting hang outs with special guests from the relevant fields to give input and advise from their experiences.

Where webinar participation is substantial enough for useful conversation for others, we’ll post videos and/or audio of the discussion on our website after the event for those who are keen but can’t make the webinar time.
