Religious Educators Training Day June 5 at PLC Burwood

Dear friends in education,

We pass on an invitation from Chris Mulherin (ISCAST Executive Director), to AARE members and colleagues to the following training day. Trevor is a UK expert, with a wealth of experience.

The blurb on the flyer reads as follows (with more details here on the TryBooking site):

Our students live in an age when the notion of truth seems to be out of fashion, particularly when it comes to religion. Diversity rules. This presents a huge challenge for Christian schools. Many Christian scholars have, over the years, used the notion of worldview to negotiate the relationship between truth and diversity. In this session Trevor will introduce the ideas of worldview and critical realism as a robust foundation for education in Christian schools.

Blessings & Joy

join the: Faith Values Webinar hosted by Dr. Dave Benson from the UK to explore the following question:

“How can Christians serve an education system well for it to flourish in a more secular and multicultural age?”

Dave is a leading thinker and researcher on the role of faith in 21st-Century western culture. Formerly a high school teacher, then lecturer at Malyon Theological College in Brisbane, Australia, he now heads up the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity’s work for Culture & Discipleship.

His mission is to cultivate disciples with wisdom for the way of Christ in a post-Christendom culture. His 2016 Ph.D project entitled ‘Schools, Scripture and Secularisation’ considers the telos of competing curricular visions and the place of sacred texts in secular education.

Herbert Um, of ( will also be sharing an update on their progress to develop GRE curriculum resources for their pilot in Victorian Public Schools.

Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to learn more about how we as Christians can best serve our education system in today’s secular and multicultural setting.
