It is with great pleasure that Compassion Australia invites you to hear Australia’s leading social researcher, Mark McCrindle, present his insights encompassing the increasingly complex issues surrounding ‘The Church in Today’s Australia.’
You may well have heard Mark McCrindle speak previously on ‘Sunrise’, ‘A Current Affair’, or other news and talk shows, regarding the social trends within our Australian culture. He has also presented at several Denominational State and National Conferences, bringing a particularly Christian perspective to bear on his research. The unique element within this half-day seminar will be Mark’s specific focus on Melbourne’s changing trends. his will provide clarity on the various shifts taking place in our broader social landscape, highlight changing areas of need within the various levels of society, and give innovative suggestions for creative ministry opportunities that arise within those areas of changing needs.
This is a unique opportunity to ensure that the key people in your leadership networks are up to date in their understanding of the direction our society is moving, the changing needs that these trends are creating, and the proactive steps they need to be taking to engage effectively with the Gospel mandate of Jesus’ mission for personal and community transformation.
