Bruce Baird to deliver 2019 Gordon Moyes Memorial Lecture
Former Federal MP and NSW Minister Bruce Baird will deliver the 2019 Gordon Moyes Memorial Lecture on Monday, 18 November.
The lecture is named after former Wesley Mission Superintendent Rev. Dr Gordon Moyes.
Baird’s lecture will centre on the role that the Christian community has in
providing care to vulnerable and voiceless people.
Mr Baird was Federal Member representing Cook from 1998 to 2007 and chair of multiple House Committees.
Mission inaugurated the memorial lecture in 2015 to reflect on the impact of Gordon’s ministry and legacy, engaging with the topics that characterised his tenure as Superintendent of Wesley Mission.
Rev. Keith Garner is the current Wesley Mission Superintendent and CEO..
“Gordon Moyes exercised a remarkable 27 years of leadership at Wesley
Mission,” Rev. Garner said.
“During this time, new innovations and partnerships were formed to help those most in need.”
“Bruce Baird is a natural choice to be the next lecturer in this series having himself used his political voice to address major social issues.”
The event is open to the public and admission is free.
The Gordon Moyes Memorial Lecture takes place on Monday 18 November at the Wesley Centre from 6pm.
