Australia’s social context is changing rapidly, and with it, so is the nature of church and ministry.
It is increasingly shaped by great diversity across culture, race, gender, class, education, region, geography, and age. Histories of migration, relationships between settlers and Australia’s indigenous peoples, and dynamics of power, privilege, and marginalization bring additional complexity and challenge.
There is an urgent need for the church to respond to this, but how?
Ministry in Australia’s diverse contexts now requires leaders with an artist’s pallet of tools, experiences, and knowledge. These “artists” are able to engage and foster community within and beyond the walls of churches, shaped by the biblical vision of Shalom in which each person is able to be fully themselves, have their voices heard, and have their gifts shared.
This workshop seeks to resource intercultural ministry for a variety of ministry leaders nurturing cultural relevance, understanding, and awareness in their communities.
It is comprised of two days of engagement on gospel and culture, biblical reflections, sharing of ministry experiences, panel discussion
and group discussion. Participants will need to be open to the actual experience of intercultural ministry, being in community with and learning from expressions of faith and cultures outside their own.
Note: if you wish to pay by cash on the day or by cheque or direct deposit, you can choose that option when you register.
