TCMA 2013 Conference

The 2013 TCMA conference will this year be held at Newcastle University from September 24 – 26, so make sure to put these dates into your diaries!

The theme for this year is Minds, Vines & Values – Growing the Dream

People studying at University come from vastly different places from within Australia as well as from overseas but all of them come to University with core values and dreams that drive them to complete their studies. Our role as Chaplains is about nurturing the spirits and dreams of our students and staff and tapping into all those non-materialistic reasons that bring people to University. We strive to help them connect their dreams and provide an anchor to those dreams and values.

In this conference we explore how we do that and look for new and exciting ways to provide the best pastoral care in a University setting.

We invite Chaplains to offer proposals for workshops. Please send abstracts to Kate Bartlett — Kathleen.Bartlett@newcastle.edu.au by August 1st.

While you are here take time to sample the delights of the Hunter Valley—surf, sun, vineyards—the possibilities are endless!!
