30th June

Kirsty Ellem will be providing an insight into the work of the Venny which is a staffed communal backyard, garden and adventure playground facility in Kensington. The Venny provides early intervention and prevention programs that foster resilience of 5 to 16 year olds from the nearby high-rise public housing estate and surrounding areas. The Venny’s program partners include Hotham Mission and St Joseph’s Flexible Learning Centre which is a specialist secondary school in North Melbourne for young people who have disengaged from mainstream schooling.

7th July

Erin Sessions will be providing an insight into her work as Lead of Common Grace’s Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) Team which is developing an online resource for theological education providers that equips Christian leaders to prevent and respond to DFV. In order to challenge attitudes and beliefs which provide little defense against the culture which allows violence against women and children to occur, Erin will reflect on how we might go about doing Theology differently.
