Event description

Description

The Rural Field Days are a chance to get together, network, share resources and stories, as well as engage with the bigger picture across the Uniting Church. Growing Healthy Churches is designed to assist rural churches, small or large, with a broad range of information, tools and resources to maintain and improve their health.

Lisa Wells, is the Press Go Catalyst with the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. Lisa will present three sessions on the nurture of healthy congregations. Mark Faulkner begins as the Director of Rural and Remote Ministries for the NSW/ACT Synod in August. Mark will be speaking on a vision for resourcing scattered communities. Christine Sorensen is the Dean of Formation for the NSW/ACT Synod, based at the Centre for Ministry. Christine will speak on ways we continually respond to the challenges we face as disciples of Christ.

Staff from Uniting Mission & Education (Resourcing Team and UTC Faculty), Uniting Resources and Uniting will lead workshops. Workshop topics include healthy church governance for church councils, Presbyteries and committees, health checks for congregations, healthy communication, finance and property, taking the pulse on our work with children, youth and families, growing a healthy church in a healthy world.
