In 2017, Gospel Yarning was an awesome experience of being a cross-cultural church that is centred on the Gospel. The feedback said it was effective, constructive and empowering. Circumstances delayed its follow-up.

In 2021, we move along to this core question: Who will contribute leadership to the cross-cultural Uniting Church to share the Gospel for a secular world?

For Such a Time as This: How can we be the church of Jesus Christ in a secular world?

Gospel Yarning will again inspire, empower and connect us.  This event will significantly raise your understanding of how the context of secularism affects the church, and introduce tools for strengthening your ministry in that context.  This affects the whole church.

Who is it for?

Gospel Yarning is for:

  • ministers,
  • chaplains,
  • deacons,
  • presbytery workers, and
  • ministry agents

in the Uniting Church in Australia and Uniting NSW/ACT.

What we'll do

We will meet to talk/talanoa/yarn in OIKOS groups, open space sessions, elective discussions and share our stories.

Keynote Speaker

Rev Dr Peter Hobson, Wesley Mission Queensland / Albert Street UCA, Brisbane -Formerly a local minister, university chaplain and lecturer, Peter is a good communicator, and a story-teller who is a good thinker about the world we seek to reach.
