Sharing stories of hope
Following the sold-out success of the 2014 UnitingWomen conference in Sydney, the Uniting Church in South Australia is proud to be hosting the 2016 UnitingWomen conference in Adelaide. The four day event, spanning from April 28 to May 1st, will focus on the theme Sharing Stories of Hope.
The event provides an open and engaging environment for Christian women to gather and share the ways Christ is inspiring hope in their lives and communities.
More than 20 speakers and workshop presenters will take part in the UnitingWomen 2016 conference, which stars the captivating and insightful Khadija Gbla as the opening speaker.
An anti female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner, cross cultural consultant, refugee and mother, Khadija will share her experiences of God responding to hope and prayer in all areas of her life. Known for her TED Talk which has amassed over 850 thousand views, Khadija’s talk is not one to be missed.
Other presenters include Moderator Dr Deidre Palmer, and lecturers Rev Dr Vicky Balabanski and Dr Liz Boase who will present each day at the conference, weaving hope from the Bible into their daily presentations. Additional speakers will be announced through the UnitingWomen Facebook page and the unitingwomen.org.au website over the coming months.
UnitingWomen 2016 will be held at Wesley Kent Town Uniting Church (27 Grenfell Street, Kent Town) in Adelaide, while workshops will be hosted at the nearby Prince Alfred College (23 Dequetteville Terrace, Kent Town).
Registration costs $195, which includes workshop materials, welcome bag, supper, and morning and afternoon teas. Delegates are responsible for organising their own accommodation and meals.
