Choose from five electives:

Elective 1 - Help! I'm new to work - How to cultivate Gospel centred habits from the beginning
In this worshop, we will look at how the Gospel is good news of great joy for those who are in their early years of work or are about to join work for the first time. With Sharon Cheung.

Elective 2 - Work as mission - Exploring the mission on home ground
This workshop will explore the idea of the workplace as the mission field and invite you to consider how God is growing his kingdom through local work in Australia. With Sharon Cheung.

Elective 1 - An alternative worldview
This “hands on” workshop will consider the prevailing worldview of those in your area. We will then consider how the worldview presented by the gospel offers a compelling alternative. If time permits, we will think about how the church can embody and proclaim this message. With Tim Foster.

Elective 1 - Transformational Justice in Aboriginal Communities

In this workshop we will explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice issues and how God’s ministries are transforming communities.

Elective 2 - Statement from the Heart
In this workshop we will explore Uluru Statement from the Heart, what it means to us individually and discern God’s call to action.
