TOPIC: Gender Equality & Freedom of Conscience
At the end of May, the BUV has hosted an introductory panel discussion around the issue of Gender Equality and Women’s Leadership in the Church. It is the desire of Union Council that all BUV Churches during this year, intentionally engage in prayerful discussion and discernment around these issues.
In order to engage people from the Baptist Churches in Victoria, there are 3 consultation forums organised in July and August. This is an opportunity for anyone to register and come along to be part of talking with others about these issues in the local church and our BUV, the challenges, and ways forward.
The planned forums are:
Monday 30th July – Werribee Baptist register here
Thursday 2nd August – BUV Office in Camberwell register here
Thursday 9th August – Templestowe Baptist register here
