Price $650 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Join us for a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Australia where we will be listening and sharing between First Nations people, other locals and the leaders of the Iona and Wellspring communities.

Based in simple Pilgrimage accommodation at Campfire in the Heart Alice Springs, the pilgrimage includes time with Arrernte Elders, time on Country, a structured retreat, the Hermannsburg choir, art, travelling out to significant places, grappling with the settler-colonial legacy including the frontier wars, and more.

We will spend time with local Christian and Contemplative communities including Streams in the Desert, Campfire in the HeartIlwempe Ilwempe: Whitegums, the Alice Springs Uniting Church and others, in their living across cultures and amidst the current tensions in Central Australia.

We will engage with their wisdom and struggles about how to connect with and care for Country, what truth-telling about Settler-Colonial history calls us to and how to live a Christianity shaped by Indigenous-led theologies.
