Come and hear from a director of a major accounting firm who has experienced how working God's way isn't just pleasing to God

3 Keys to Happiness: The paradox of being true to yourself

"Above all else be true to thyself." But does it work? Does it really bring happiness? Or is it a trap?

"Above all else be true to thyself." But does it work? Does it really bring happiness? Or is it a trap? Sam Chan explores how we often fail to find happiness when we are true to ourselves and how living for something bigger than ourselves might just hold the secret to true happiness.

Rethinking work

WORK. We always hope it might change for the better. But it never seems to. What we need is a new way to think about work.
Repeats every day 3 times.
Saturday April 20th, 10.53am to Tuesday April 26th, 1.20pm

Saturday April 20th, 10.53am to Thursday April 28th, 1.20pm

Could there be a new way to think about work?

Sometimes work is wonderful but often it is difficult and frustrating. It doesn't seem to deliver what we hope for. So what do we do? We change jobs. And what happens: the new job turns out to be difficult and frustrating. Perhaps we need a new way to think about work.

Join us for three talks that explore God and work, with our speaker Glenn Hohnberg. Could this be a new way to work?

Adam Hills and the keys to Happiness

Has Adam Hills found the keys to happiness?

I’m a great fan of comedy. In many ways our comedians reflect back our values and worldviews – “it’s funny ‘cause it’s true”.

The other night I watched some of Adam Hill’s Happyism from the 2013 Edinborough Comedy Festival.

At the end Adam shared that he’s just found a new religion, after talking to his 95-year-old granddad. His granddad said “My religion is this: family and helping people.” Adam responded, “Granddad, I think I’ve just converted.”
