Important: This event has already occurred.
This is when the diocese comes together to learn, pray and be inspired for Christ's service. It's also a great opportunity to meet Anglicans from across our region and to celebrate what God is up to in our midst.
In 2017-18 the diocese is being intentional about being a reconciling church and we have been called, by our bishop, to a Year of Reconciliation. But what does it mean? What is it to be reconciling people, in our selves, at home, in our churches, in creation, with all nations, and beyond? Come and explore these ideas TOGETHER.
