NEW CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA ASSEMBLY MAY 6th and 7th 2016
This is a very important opportunity for the church to come together nationally and discuss the future life and needs of the church. Being an Assembly, it is not a decision-making meeting but a sharing of views, which can be taken forward for further work and ratification.
It will be held at Greenhills Centre, just outside Canberra.
There are currently 31 people who have booked to come or indicated that they will be there. People will be attending from all societies in Australia and New Zealand, plus some other individual people. A program is in the process of being drawn up and this will include a number of papers and presentations, some organisational and some spiritual.
It is a long time since we have had a national gathering or Conference, and it is good and timely that we are doing so mid next year.
At the start of the Assembly there needs to be a short Annual General Meeting (a requirement), and this will be followed by the appointment and induction of Rev. David Moffat as the incoming President of The New Church in Australia.
