Afternoons at SURRENDER:15 will be a little different this year. In workshops we will hear fresh perspectives and be equipped and empowered by practitioners who seek to combine knowledge and action. The Creative Spaces will allow us to get hands on and down to earth. They're open opportunities to reflect, create and tap in to the physical, emotional and spiritual elements of life. Or join a Crafted Conversation where those who've walked the journey create and stimulate an environment to dream, discuss, question and consider.
And the great thing about it is that there's something for all stages of the faith journey - from rookie to veteran! Check out page 4 & 5 of the program for a full list of workshops and their categories.
Weaving life together // Join keynote speaker Ruth Padilla De Borst in exploring how we as followers of Jesus are called to seek God's loving and just rule & serve as agents of reconciliation. With Ruth Padilla De Borst

Arts as a reflective tool // Learn how we can use art as a reflective tool with the people we share life with. No creative ability necessary! With Marita Hanscamp
Burnt Out? // Making things right means we confront plenty of things that are wrong. So how can we sustain the journey long term? With Mick Duncan
Out of the Ruins // Explore how the history and foundation of our country has shaped our present and how we become the generations that build God's Kingdom on Earth in Australia. With Brooke Prentis
Planet Right // Part of making things right is mending our fractured and destructive relationship with our Earth. How can we work to make things right in our environment and how is this actually part of our discipleship? With Dr Mick Pope
Bringing rightness into the struggles of young people // So many of the young people in our neighbourhoods are in desperate need of hope, belonging and love. Join a conversation exploring how we can invite them to enter into a different story! With Moriah Hurst, Gemma Bell, Garyth Hampson and Lucas First
Making the right connection between Jesus and Justice // Our justice is motivated by Jesus, but sometimes doesn't look much like him. In this session we explore why justice is a bad idea if it is detached from Jesus. What should it look like if it's centred on Him? With Matt Anslow
