  • CRE - A three day event held in October at Sandown Park in Surrey. They anticipate around 5000 – 6000 visitors from across all denominations to the exhibition, over the three days. Many of these are already full-time Christian/church workers and/or key decision makers and influencers in churches. (http://creonline.co.uk)
  • Other minor events - Those who book cards at any of the above events could also be selected, at no extra charge, for display at any of the many smaller events we attend during the year. These include: mission fairs (at various Christian colleges), one day or weekend mission conferences, Christian Union mission evenings, church events etc.

BCDO 2016The jobs board includes opportunities from a huge variety of Christian organisations in the UK and abroad, some of whom have other representation at the events and some of them not (opportunities can include short-term programmes, gap years, interns, volunteers, trustees, reps, students etc. as well as more traditional jobs or long-term roles).

Each job listing gets its own A6 card which follows a standard format including your logo, job title & description, contact details and a QR code for scanning. You just fill in our job card form and we create the cards for you.

To make this offer accessible to everyone and to provide a good spread of opportunities for the jobs board, we try to keep our costs as low as possible. Our charges for the job cards are very competitive compared to other events. Prices per card are:

Mission Resource Stand

Our mission resource stand tours a number of mission and Christian events throughout the year, which has included Big Church Day Out, New Wine, Creation Fest, One Event, David's Tent and many one day events across the UK. Rather than the usual stands which promote a single organisation or cause, the aim of this stand is to give neutral advice and information on mission across the board, for all those interested or already involved in doing or supporting any kind of mission work in the UK or overseas.

The stand usually consists of:

  • Jobs board or other job lists for public viewing
  • 24 mission resource sheets on various practical aspects of mission, designed to help enquirers, goers, senders and supporters (review these sheets here)
  • Internet linked computers and/or mobile devices with access through the OSCAR website, to our online jobs database, plus all other good sources of mission information, including the websites of mission organisations, support services and mission-minded churches.
  • Advisors who can provide one-to-one help in finding the right organisation, opportunity or resource.

If you would like to have this stand at your mission event or conference, please get in touch with us.
