Each year the Warrawee Lecture attracts an audience of around 150 people from across Sydney and regional NSW. The 2015 Warrawee Lecture, When Life Gets Hot: following Jesus on a warming planet will be delivered by Mr Byron Smith. Byron has studied environmental ethics under Oliver O’Donovan at the University of Edinburgh and is passionate to connect faith and life. Byron maintains that the current challenges facing ecosystems pose new questions for Christian theology, discipleship, and mission. Admission is free, but registration is requested.

We are pleased to announce The 2016 Warrawee Lecture will be given by Dr Brian Rosner, principal of Ridley College, Melbourne. What is a human being? Personal identity and the Bible. Brian writes “the world is obsessed with being true to yourself and knowing who you are; there’s never been a time when knowing who you are has been so difficult. If traditional societies are like rivers, buoying their members in one particular direction, modern societies are oceans – you can go in any direction you wish. But what is personal identity? Do my job, my possessions, my experiences, my memories, define who I am? What is a human being?”
Details about The 2016 Warrawee Lecture will be released closer to the event in early 2016. Remember to check our website in the new year.
