You are invited to participate in the second year of the Seminary of the 3rd Age. The Christ Church Uniting invites you to join the Seminary of the 3rd Age sessions offered at the Effective Living Centre at 26 King William Road, Wayville, on Thursday evenings.
The seminars are designed to enable free discussion and debate as to what faith, spirituality and identity might mean amid the paradox of knowledge and mystery we now associate with the 21st Century.
The Seminary of the 3rd Age is supported by The Progressive Christianity of SA, a network that recognises the evolving nature of spirituality
and also values intellectual honesty, recognising the contribution of science and history in informing our world-view.
Each seminar topic in the Seminary of the 3rd Age is of four weeks’ duration, taking place on Thursday evenings during the months of March, May, August and October 2019.
RSVP essential: book your seat online using www.trybooking.com/ZZGZ or ring the office for assistance (08) 8271 0329.
