Alpha in a Catholic Context Conference
REGROWTH is a conference for anyone in the Catholic Church who would like to see new growth in the church after such challenging times. We will be discussing Alpha in a Catholic Context as a tool to facilitate new life in our parishes.
Topics will focus on how we can use Alpha in a Catholic Context to connect people who have lost connection in our parishes, as well as to rebuild and transform the face of our parishes by becoming more invitational and welcoming.
Daniel Ang, Director, Sydney Centre for Evangelisation - Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, our keynote speaker, will be calling us to "mission" and "evangelisation" which is more important in these times than ever before.
We look forward to hosting you and your team. Please feel free to invite anyone else you know who is excited about parish renewal.
REGROWTH is a free, online event

Pastoring Young People Through Crisis
We would all have young people in our world who are in a crisis situation and we know that sometimes it's tough to know what to do as part of their support system. This November the Alpha Youth Team are hosting an online co-lab about 'Pastoring Young People Through Crisis'. We will be joined by Dr Rebecca Loundar, who has been a practising Psychologist for over 25 years and is endorsed as a Clinical and Counselling Psychologist. Dr Loundar is the Head of Social Science and a Senior Lecturer at Alphacrucis College and oversees AC's Bachelor of Applied Social Science program. We will also be hearing from Ps Shelley Ligtermoet, Youth Pastor at Citylife Church in Melbourne. She will be sharing some practical tips on how she has effectively implemented mental health strategies in her ministry. We would love to see you and some of your team there!
