Week of Spiritual Emphasis

The Next Normal: Developing Faith for Uncertain Times

2020 has been a year like no other. The world has faced adversity in ways that couldn’t have been predicted, and we find ourselves working around ways and adapting to this “new normal”. But what will the next normal look like? And why is a development in faith more crucial now than ever before?

Welcome to the 2020 Autumn Week of Spiritual Emphasis, we’re so glad to have you on this journey with us. You may be attending for motivation, or perhaps spiritual awakening. Maybe you’re looking to regain a sense of community digitally, or you’re wanting to experience something different in times when we can’t tell one day apart from another in quarantine, isolation and apprehension. Regardless of the reasons you’re here, we’re grateful that you are.

A programme designed for our students, and the wider community, we hope that together you will find the week ahead inspiring, fueling and uplifting.
