REGISTRATION OF INTEREST ONLY (NO PAYMENT REQUIRED AT THIS STAGE)
This page is where you can register your interest in participating in the 2017 JCMA Winter Conference. "Tickets" issued do not represent admission to the conference. We will contact you regarding final selection for participation. Payment will be necessary to confirm final booking.
Following our successful conference last year, the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia will be holding a short Winter Conference again in 2017.
Date: 2pm Sunday 6th August to 5pm Monday 7th August 2017
Venue: St Paul Retreat Centre, Nortons Lane, Wantirna South.
Theme: “Faith and Society”
The conference is for those who identify as Jewish, Christian or Muslim, and we are happy to receive participants from all over Australia. The theme of the Conference will be “Faith and Society”, exploring the interplay between these two all-embracing realms of our existence in the modern context of Australia today.
There will be times of joint scripture study, prayer, hearing about the life experiences and faith journeys of others, and sharing our own particular interests. All of this will be around living together and sharing meals over a 30 hour period. We are currently compiling a detailed program.
The cost will be $160. Meals will be vegetarian and conform to Halal requirements. Strict Kosher food will be arranged for those who require it.
The Conference will be held overnight from 2pm Sunday 6th August to 5pm Monday 7th August at the St Paul Retreat Centre, Nortons Lane, Wantirna South. St Paul’s provides 32 beds in double rooms. If single room accommodation is required, this will be provided at the Janssen Centre in Boronia 15 minutes drive away. Alternatively, this year we will be including participants who return home overnight, but attendance at the full program of the conference will still be a requirement for participation.
Please understand that registration of interest is not a guarantee of final selection to participate. Several considerations will govern the final selection of participants:
1) Presenters need to be selected from among participants.
2) A reasonable balance between all three faith communities will be attempted
3) Balance between young and old, male and female will also be kept in mind.
For this reason, we are asking you now to register your interest in attending the 2017 JCMA Winter Conference.
Your indication of readiness to participate will enable us to finalise the program. As soon as we have all the information we need, the planning committee will select the final participants and confirm attendance.
Payment will only be requested upon confirmation of your selection for participation.
