We're made to work and work is one of the ways in which humans flourish. Work can be satisfying and fulfilling. But sometimes work brings with it stress, pressure, conflict and challenges to our Christian faith. Sometimes work is hard to find. Sometimes we just don't like our work. Join us as we discuss what it means to be a Christian person in our workplaces and how our faith can inform our decision making about work at different stages of our lives.
This evening conference is relevant for those looking to enter the workforce, those in the workforce or looking to re-enter the workforce, and for those looking towards retirement.
Join us for a plenary session and 8 great Workshops to choose from!
