Special event to celebrate the Work of Christian Education


You are invited to a special reunion on Sunday, 22 October which will celebrate the rich Heritage of Christian Education in the UCA and its partner churches and the work of the former Joint Board of Christian Education and Uniting Education. The stimulus for this comes as a result of the following resolution, passed at the most recent Assembly Standing Committee:
"... to acknowledge and honour the rich heritage that the Joint Board of Christian Education and then Uniting Education made to the life of the Uniting Church and its former founding churches over 92 years. The ministry of these former agencies of the Assembly set an example of ecumenical cooperation and provision both of resources and training for Christian Education, Discipleship and Mission not only in Australia and New Zealand, but also for some of our partner churches in the Pacific." The Assembly Christian Education Reference Committee has offered to host this event. The celebration will be held from 2.30pm at Blackburn Uniting Church, The Avenue, Blackburn Victoria.

The guest speak is Rev. Dr David Merritt, former Director of the Joint Board of Christian Education. Should finance for air fares be an issue, please contact Mark Hillis in the National Assembly Office (02 8267 4231 This email address is being protected from spambots.
