The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture is presenting four public Interfaith Dialogues, hosted by Profs Anthony Maher and Stan Grant. The discussions will include a panel of six faith leaders from different religions. Each panellist will briefly engage with introductory remarks addressing the above questions followed by a Q & A hosted by Stan Grant between the panel and the audience.
Bishop Philip Huggins, Director, Centre for Ecumenical Studies, Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, writes about climate change, the Glasgow Climate Change Conference (COP26) and the federal election.
The People’s Climate Assembly (PCA), co-hosted by multi-faith leaders from the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC), gathered outside Parliament House in Canberra on 4 February, calling on the Australian government to take action on climate change. As a part of the peaceful protest, Anglican priest Fr. Rod Bower led an interfaith mourning ritual for victims of the widespread bushfires that have razed large areas of Australia. The ceremony of mourning was organized by the Canberra Interfaith Forum and the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture.
ARRCC organisers are excited to offer this rare opportunity for people of faith to be empowered to respond more effectively to the climate crisis. The first national ARRCC Conference is being held on 8 – 10 November at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture in Canberra.
The hope is that you will draw strength from solidarity with like-minded others, and feel less isolated. It’s not easy being so concerned about climate change when many in your own faith community are not especially switched on to the issues.
The second important reason to come along is to become more effective as a change-maker in your own area. Conference participants will share and learn with the help of inspirational campaigners, school climate strikers, faith leaders and experts in their fields. The aim is that you return to your own setting with more insight, skills and confidence to organise action at a local level.
A Chorus of Women marked the centenary of the WWI Armistice with a sell-out, standing-ovation performance of The People’s Passion at the Chapel of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. Our big choral drama moved singers and audience alike, sparking much reflection about the contribution music and great wise stories could make to Peace on Earth now. The People’s Passion will be repeated between Friday 28 June 2019 7:30 PM and Sunday 30 June 2019 5:00 PM at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Barton, ACT.
