What started as a simple idea of having a small stall at a community fun day in May 2022 has been a catalyst to enthuse church members from The Ark Salisbury Lutheran Church to engage in more community outreach.
After months of collaboration, Australian Lutheran College and Cross-Cultural Ministry are delighted to launch a new online training course to serve those in the LCANZ who want to engage with ethnic newcomers.
St John’s Lutheran has been offering German-speaking worship services and ministry as part of their congregational work for decades. The most recent leader of the German language services and ministry is Maria Rudolph, who graduated from ALC with a Bachelor of Theology and Ministry in 2021.
The LCA was invited to this roundtable of 80 Australian church leaders to hear from (and question) the immigration minister (Alex Hawke) and shadow (Kristina Keneally) in the lead up to the federal election.
