Our Story

Who We Are

AccessTheStory Incorporated is an Australian-based Christian not-for-profit existing as a catalyst for change in how a generation engages with the Bible.

“We are an agile Christian agency with experience in spiritual formation practices, and a heart to see a generation find faith through God’s story.”

We are grateful for the privilege of working through relational networks across most Christian denominations and with a variety of independent schools. We are also proud to hold affiliate membership with Baptist Churches of South Australia.

AccessTheStory is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

Our Culture:

Communicating God’s Story to people EFFECTIVELY

Our heart is to see people genuinely engage with God’s story -- wrestling with its implications, and bringing about change in how they view their own life and the world in which they live.

Communicating God’s Story to people POWERFULLY

We confess that the effectiveness we seek is completely dependant upon the influence of the Loving Person identified as ‘God the Holy Spirit’ by the Christian story.

Communicating God’s Story to people CREATIVELY

We rest in the truth that God’s Story is an expression of God’s creativity, and we therefore pursue creative means to engage with this story that it might be experienced afresh.

Communicating God’s Story to people DIFFERENTLY

We’re discovering that our practice requires a deliberate choice to distribute the power for learning among a community, and this is usually a different approach to how typical Bible engagement happens.

Our Ambition:

“AccessTheStory exists to empower teachers & leaders who will see a generation of learners find faith through God’s Story.”

Our consequence:

“We are seeking to empower a dynamic movement of teachers and leaders who will foster genuine faith formation among a new generation of learners.”

Our DNA:

… You can read our DNA here, or experience it here.

God’s story has far more capacity to bring transformation into our lives than any well-crafted modern story – because it is the greatest story of all time … this is a story to be experienced and embraced and retold.
