Why do we explore space?

Reflecting on 50 years since the moon landing
Monday June 3rd, 7.00pm to 8.15pm

For thousands of years, humanity has been shaped by the vast cosmos above. Neil Armstrong's "Giant leap for mankind" realised the imagination of ancient mariners, mathematicians, priests and even farmers. Why is space the stuff dreams are made of? What have we learned about ourselves and our place in the universe since 1969? Where to next?

Join our guests as we take you on a journey of imagination, reality, and 300 million kilometres.

Ask some bigger questions at this after-work event that is out of this world!

Twisted Technology

How can we be alert to the twisting of technology, especially in the age of machines and robotics? This is the second talk in our The Future of Work Life@Work breakfast series.

Tuesday July 9th, 5.45pm to 8.30pm

Discover how where you are now truly matters to God.

We all have an everyday context that’s significant to God, full of people who matter to God. But can we see how God might have been working in and through us on our frontlines, especially the workplace? And can we imagine what more God might want to do there?
