Anyone in membership is welcome, as are your families, and anyone who has shown interest in CMA’s ministry.

Servant hearts – the smooth running of our National Rally always depends on a ‘servants hearts’ attitude with everyone being willing to help out in whatever way they can.

If so, do let us know!
