Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world. Many hundreds of thousands of migrants, refugees and international students have come to Australia, greatly enriching what is already a wonderful place to live. Most people from a non-English speaking background settle in the various capital cities, and include many who have come from a Buddhist, Muslim or Hindu background. While Interserve continues to be passionate about sending people to serve throughout Asia and the Middle East, there are many exciting opportunities to do the same thing here. Through CultureConnect, Interserve provides opportunities for networking, resourcing and serving in cross-cultural ministry right here in Australia.
