LCANZ National Youth Adult Forum Changes
There are a few changes we need to let you know about regarding holding this event from 4-6 September 2021 in Adelaide.
In consultation with the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand leadership, we have decided to postpone the face-to-face event this year. This is due to the unpredictable border closures around Australia due to the current outbreak of COVID-19. It is our hope that we can hold a face-to-face component of this event around late August/Early September in 2022. However, on September 6, 2021, we plan to arrange to meet online. This will be from 10.00am—3.00pm (ACST). You will meet Bishop John Henderson and the Executive Officer of the Church, Peter Schirmer.
With these changes now in place, we would ask you to confirm your interest in being involved in the LCANZ National Young Adult Forum as this now includes two events. The first event will be the one day online on Monday 6th September and the second event will be a 2–3-day face-to-face event in August/September 2022. It is important to us that you commit to both events to gain the big picture of the LCANZ and for continuity of participants. It is most likely that we will arrange regular contact with you throughout the 12 months between the online event and the face-to-face event, so be prepared to get involved via an online network to discuss matters of interest to do with the National Convention of Synod.
Once we have heard from you, we will pursue your expression of interest by speaking with your Pastor and District leadership. You will then be notified of your participation.
Please let us know of your intentions no later than the end of next week, Friday 6th August 2021. If we don’t hear from you, we will assume you no longer wish to be involved.
