On Saturday 21 October 2017, SA Council of Churches General Council and its various committees gathered for the AGM and for an exchange of hopes, insights and ways of assisting the member churches in making more visible their unity in Christ.
SACC thanks Happy Valley Church of Christ for their gracious and generous hospitality in so many ways. Especially we thank them for their preparations and for leading worship, sharing stories, introducing us to Happy Patch (community garden), and for offering morning tea, all of which nourished and inspired us!
The meeting had prepared for conversation on SACC Priority 5, with a number of churches presenting descriptions of Ecumenical Partnership in the Mission of Christ. More detail will be available soon.
Two excellent resources were launched during the gathering: Ecumenical Lenten Resource for 2018: A Lenten Pilgrimage to the Heart – www.sacc.asn.au Enhance Learning in Parishes: A Learning Community Approach for Church Congregations, written by John Littleton, published by MediaCom Education Inc. http://www.mediacom.org.au/jle
