CTSA executive director Rev Anne Hewitt said the presenters were “warmly received” and there was genuine interest and a “desire to learn more as a community of God”.
Attendees came from the Uniting, Anglican, Lutheran and Catholic churches, the Church of Christ, Quakers, Salvation Army, Australian Christian Churches, Independent Churches and the Ba’hai community.
The morning session presented by Aunty Prof Anne Pattel-Gray had a theological and biblical approach. She is recognised internationally for her research and presentations on Indigenous communities such as the Sami Canadian peoples and Inuit Peoples of Iceland.
In the evening Rev Cannon Dr Garry Deverell spoke about the upcoming referendum and participated in a panel session.
Rev Hewitt said CTSA was hoping to host ‘listening and learning conversations’ across Church denominations around city and regional areas.Jump to next article
