Over the extended weekend from Friday 12th – Monday 15th October, four regions of the Presbytery were visited by UME representatives Rev Fie Marino (Multi-Cultural Consultant for the Synod) and Rev Dr Ian Robinson (Alan Walker Lecture in Evangelism at UTC). They led discussions on the second stage of the Pathways program which is designed to gather the views of congregational members on future priorities and planning for the NSW/ACT Uniting Church Synod. The two leaders met with folks from the Central Region at Leeton, from the Western Region at Berrigan, from the Southern Region at Wagga Wagga and from the Eastern Region at Cootamundra.
Ian Robinson also took the opportunity to speak further about his “Makes You Wonder” evangelism program which takes advantage of the many outreach opportunities available online, including his specially-developed App called “Makes You Wonder”.
