“Creation: ecology, theology, revolution”
The Conference begins at 3.00 pm on Friday
St Andrew’s on The Terrace, 30 The Terrace, Wellington
Please check in at our on-site registration desk in the Hall in St Andrew’s Centre, collect your conference pack, and—if relevant—choose a location for Friday evening’s meal. Afternoon tea will be available until 2.30 pm.
