Ignite is CMSI’s annual conference for the whole CMSI family - members, supporters and churches who engage with the society and our partners. It's also open to anyone with a broader interest in global mission.
The programme includes worship, updates and a wide range of seminars, offering a chance to hear the latest news and stories from all of our Global Partner countries. There’s time to catch up with friends and make new connections, sharing experiences over coffee and lunch. A Children’s Programme is also available.
Each year, the programme includes contributions from at least one of our Global Partners, some of our mission personnel, the CMSI Staff team and some special guests.
Friday Extra is our special programme for residential guests on the evening before Ignite. It includes a praise and prayer service and a Q&A panel, in which we get to know a few of the CMSI family. For those with a competitive streak, the post-supper Ignite Beetle Drive Championship has become something of a highlight!
The event normally takes place at Dromantine Retreat and Conference Centre, just off the main A1 road near Newry. The centre is set in spectacular grounds and the facilities are ideal for our programme. There’s an opportunity to stay over at Dromantine on the Friday night and make the most of the venue.
Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, the 2021 event will take place online. We hope to return to Dromantine in September 2022.
