Katoomba Christian Convention
|This article relies too much on references to primary sources. (January 2008)|
Katoomba Christian Convention (KCC) is an interdenominational ministry providing evangelical Bible preaching to Christians. Conventions are held in KCC's 2300 seat auditorium at Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains approximately 100 km (62 mi) west of the Central Business District of Sydney, Australia.
At present there are 6 conventions (many of them run over 2–3 identical weekends).
The site also hosts the annual CMS Summer School, organised by the Church Missionary Society which draws close to 3000 people a day during the first week of January.
List of current conventions
- next generation conference—equips and trains youth and children's leaders and also future leaders to have Bible-focused ministries

Previous conventions have included City Youth Convention (CYC), KYC express, October Katoomba Convention (OKC) and Katoomba Convention Plus (KC+). KCC was the organisation behind the sell out event at the Sydney Entertainment Centre—Burn Your Plastic Jesus and has organised Pastor's Convention with Matt Chandler.
In 2011 KCC ran one of the biggest conventions for Christian leaders ever held in Sydney, Oxygen. Leaders were refreshed in their ministry by the preaching of John Piper & John Lennox. Oxygen was followed by One, a sell-out event at the Sydney Entertainment Centre where John Piper & John Lennox preached to nearly 10,000 people.
