About the Australian Student Christian Movement

The Australian Student Christian Movement (ASCM) is an ecumenical movement of tertiary students, university faculty and senior friends with a history in Australia dating back over a hundred years. It is an affiliate movement of the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF), an international federation of over 100 national movements spanning six WSCF regions: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East and North America.

In 2004 the General Assembly of WSCF affirmed the following statement as the guiding vision of the federation:

Avril Hannah-Jones – speech at #bustthebudget rally, 7 July

Avril Hannah-Jones, who leads some of ASCM's Bible studies in Melbourne, spoke at last Sunday's #bustthebudget rally in Melbourne.

Christians love feeding the hungry; it’s one of the things that Jesus told us specifically to do. I’m proud of my people when they bring food and give it to those who need it. But I wonder why, in a rich country like Australia, there are people who would go hungry without charity. Why isn’t Australia’s wealth shared more equally?


Report on HRJP and AYSG 2013 Meetings in the Philippines by Heidintatha Ohnpaykunoo

Having the opportunity to participate in the “Justice and peace now” conference gave me a chance to meet young people from the Asia-Pacific region who love God and serve the Lord in their own different ways. The events of both the Asia-Pacific Students and Youth Gathering and the Human Rights, Justice and Peace Forum helped me to consider clearly about bible verse, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Luke 10:2), during my visit to Freedom Island and when we demonstrated for “education is not for sale”.
