National Consultation

South Sudan Sudanx150South Sudanese and Sudanese Church Leaders

Co-hosted by the National Council of Churches in Australia and the Australian Centre for Christianity & Culture Canberra

Tuesday 15 & Wednesday 16 May 2018, 10.00am to 4.00pm

Venue:

The Chambers Pavilion, Australian Centre for Christianity & Culture, 15 Blackall Street, Barton ACT.

Purpose:

After listening to the community in January, as requested, we are gathering a small group of leaders including from nominations by NCCA Heads of Churches for our meeting, which is just before Africa Week.

Our intention is to draft together a statement by our gathered leaders. This has several purposes. One is so it can be sent to representatives of the various stakeholders who are part of the High Level Revitalisation Forum  as well as other leaders and interested parties. Our focus will also be on how the community here in Australia can help rebuild trust amongst itself, facilitate our own peace process and contribute to what is necessary to bring about sustainable peace in South Sudan, Sudan and here in Australia.
