CCMA’s small-town mission fields now cover Dubbo, Orange and neighbour towns in NSW as well as Shepperton in Victoria. Since 2009, CCMA began the mission in Orange and Bathurst in NSW. A missionary couple was sent from 2016 to continue the ministries  in Orange as the mission centre. Together with five Chinese churches, they expanded the mission field to 17 surrounding towns. The missionary couple plans to move to Dubbo NSW by the end of 2019 to enhance local outreaching and discipleship training. A monthly service is held on Monday night. Our hope is to grow Chinese Christians (about 7 people now) & join a local church in the future. In Victoria, Shepparton Christian Fellowship was started from March 2018 and their Chinese Sunday Service is held fortnightly.

New South Wales

Dubbo

Dubbo is a town 400 kilometres northwest of Sydney with a Chinese population of around 500. Most Chinese has the problem of social integration & doesn’t mingle with the locals. They find excitement in gambling at clubs. Divorce & remarriage are common phenomena.

Dubbo

Most of the Chinese in Dubbo come from Mainland China. Very few heard about the Gospel. Since there is no Chinese church and very few Christians there, Dubbo is a “Gospel Wilderness”. Mandarin is the third most common household language, accounting for 0.5% of the total population (about 170 people).
