Why the Seminar ?

The Church  faces challenges with the disillusionment and discouragement that comes from the scandals shaking the faith of so many. Yet the Church cannot be defined by these scandals, as it is a living example of the magnificent joy and beauty of the living Body of Christ that provides us with the courage and confidence that come from the encounter with the living God.

It’s time to take responsibility for our Mother Church. The Church is not an just an institution nor is it only defined by its buildings and doctrine. Our God is a living God dwelling in and among His people, the Church is you and me. Come let us defend our faith, while showing the world how we the Church are A POWER FOR GOOD and how we can live this in our day to day life.
