Human dignity and the future of work with Kara Martin and Stephen McAlpine
Thu 23 May, 5.45pm-8pm
The nature of work is changing fast with some estimates predicting that 50% of jobs today will not exist in 20 years time. Already technology is drastically impacting youth employment, manual jobs and office roles. There are a variety of responses suggested including the universal basic income, but there are more fundamental issues that need to be addressed:
what is the definition of work;
how do we preserve human dignity in the face of technology;
is paid work a basic human right, and
should the drive for efficiency trump the need for humans to work?
Equipping Christians to flourish beyond Sunday - A Workship Workshop
Mon 27 May, 12.30pm-4.30pm
How do God's people walk out church doors on a Sunday discipled for Monday to Saturday and feeling equipped to go into an increasingly hostile secular culture? Local churches play a vital role towards our congregation members going confidently into a world telling them to be ashamed of the church and to remain silent about their faith and their Lord. How does anybody connect and pastorally care for another when work, business, the playgroup, the school gate, uni or gym is a challenge to our walk with Jesus?
Hear from lecturer and Workship author Kara Martin and pastor Matt Waldron in this strategic and paradigm-shifting workshop.
We will look at the church gathered – shaping worship and preaching to support and affirm expressing faith in all of life; as well as the church scattered – increasing engagement of all Christians to live and speak the Gospel wherever the Sovereign God puts them. Matt will share what has been implemented at Three Crosses and will provide doable next steps which won't add to your workload.
