Save the date: Ancient Futures: the Renewal of Religious Life in the Australian Church

We are pleased to announce our upcoming conference "Ancient Futures: the Renewal of Religious Life in the Australian Church".  

“Ancient Futures” will bring together ecumenical representatives from a wide range of traditional, new and emerging communities across Australia, in order to:

  • Reflect on the distinctive role played by religious communities during the first two centuries of Christianity in Australia
  • Assess the history of new communities in Australia over the past 50 years: founding charisms, missions, relationships with church hierarchies, sustainability over time
  • Consider how God may be calling 21st century Australians to various forms of religious life, and what ecclesial conditions (e.g. vision-casting, theology, resourcing, oversight, ecumenical collaboration) are now required to enable what the Holy Spirit is doing.

Draft programme:

Thurs 5 Nov 2020 (pm): opening keynote, worship & fellowship                                                                   

Fri 6 Nov (am & pm): a day for practitioners – lectures, workshops, worship & fellowship Sat 7 Nov (am & pm): an open conference on the theology and practice of religious life
