Shine is CMSI’s annual members' day. It takes place every Spring in the Emmaus Centre, Swords.

Shine is one of the highlights in the CMSI annual calendar. It's an opportunity for members and supporters of the society to reflect over the past year and celebrate all that God has done through the society and our partners. It also offers a chance to look forward and to hear about CMSI's plans for the years ahead.

The Programme

The programme for the day includes:

  • A warm welcome with tea and coffee (from 11am)

  • Our annual review (morning) - with worship, stories and reflections from the past twelve months

  • A shared lunch with time to chat and share together

  • Our Annual General Meeting, beginning at 2pm


The AGM includes presentations from our Mission Director and the Chair of the Board Of Trustees, as well as a financial report. There's also an opportunity for members to input into important decisions and to elect new trustees to the board.

The Venue

The event takes place at The Emmaus Centre, Swords, just north of Dublin. It's a great venue for our day and is easy to get to by car - it's just off the M1.
