Description

Welcome to Pastoral Strength Conference 2019 - Spirituality in Untrusting Waters

  • Monday 4th February 2019 - 8:30am to 6pm
  • Tuesday 5th February 2019 - 8:30am to 5pm. Conference dinner from 7pm to 10pm.
  • Wednesday 6th February 2019 - 8:30am to 12pm

The Pastoral Strength Conference is a collaborative initiative of Uniting, Wesley Mission, United Theological College and The Uniting Church in Australia Synod of NSW and ACT. It is designed to nurture, connect, strengthen and provide professional development for pastoral practitioners working within multi-faith organisations. We invite you to join with us for this special event.

The Conference will be anchored by Padraig O’ Tuama, Irish author, poet – peace builder. Padraig is the director of the Corrameela Peace Community that brings communities in conflict together to build understanding, peace and relationships.

Our keynote speaker is Rev Dr Storm Swain, Associate Professor, Pastoral Care and Theology. Storm is New Zealand born and now lives in New York. Her PhD and her CPE supervisory practice expand on her experiences of working with the chaplains at the 9/11 ground zero mortuary. As we are living in a world surrounded by acts of violence and trauma, her wisdom will help us develop our capabilities.

The Pastoral Strength conference is an interfaith event; so pastoral practitioners working within multi-faith organisations are very welcome to attend.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking

If you are planning on driving to the Aerial UTS Function Centre, paid parking is available in a car park on site, which can be accessed from Thomas Street, Ultimo, when travelling west. A lift in the car park will take you to the function centre on level 7.

There is also a limited amount of metered street parking available in Thomas Street, so we suggest you arrive early if you would like to make use of this. If you are travelling from interstate or overseas, Aerial UTS Function Centre is 30 minutes’ drive from the airport, but we recommend that you allow more time for traffic.

Public Transport

The University of Technology is easily accessible by public transport. It is a short five minute walk from Central Station and public buses run regularly to the area. For more information on how to get there via public transport, please visit the Transport NSW website.
