This expo looks at areas that affect church health, from admin and governance, to mission and leadership, healthy communications, and more!
The Healthy Churches Expo is an opportunity for various parts of the NSW/ACT Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia to:
- highlight ways we can equip, support and empower presbyteries, congregations and lay people in areas of discipleship, mission, leadership, and governance; and
- connect and engage people within the wider Uniting Church community.
Our expo program for 2020 will include four streams:
- Healthy Congregation Administration and Governance
- Mission and Growth
- Leadership and Discipleship
- Healthy Congregations
We’ll have a wide range of speakers and presenters and engaging sessions on topics like church council, treasury, safe church, mission, mentoring and leaderships, rural networks, youth and emerging gen, communications, how to engage with our community and the environment – and more!
