2018 conference will be held in Wellington, hosted by St Andrew’s on The Terrace Presbyterian Church

from the conference: “ecology, theology & revolution”

Rev Dr Susan Jones’ introductory talk is now online. Susan welcomed attendees of the 2018 Common Ground conference with an overview of the conference’s theme and a brief history of “progressive” Christianity. Her presentation placed the “environment and ecology” message of the conference in the context of theology and the revolution we need to be a part of. Link to Ecology, Theology, Revolution

Also online is Susan’s Sunday morning reflection at St Andrew’s on The Terrace, for “Planet Earth Sunday” in the Season of Creation.

We now have a separate page on Facebook for Conference information and updates. While you’ll still find information on the Progressive Christianity Aotearoa page, its newsfeed won’t be quite as full of Conference-related posts.
