Eastern at Surrender Conference

Eastern College has always been a proud supporter of the Surrender
Conference and it was an honour to be involved again this year and
to engage in the idea of Love God, Love Neighbour, Love Enemy. From
the beautiful music of The Brilliance to the poignancy and authenticity
of the speakers, Surrender 16 was a truly wonderful experience.

One highlight was the creative display of Eastern students’ artwork in
the main auditorium (top right). Another was hearing from church
planter and Art and Community Development lecturer Michelle Sanders
about the work she is doing with young people and refugee communities
in Melbourne and also in prisons in the USA and UK (bottom photo).

It was great to see Hannah Rate, the children’s pastor at Koornang Uniting
Church, Murrumbeena and recent Bachelor of Theology Graduate leading
the children’s programme at Surrender (top left).
