Bishop’s Training Event 2023

The Bishop’s Training Event ran over two Saturdays in September: in Hobart on Saturday 23 September and in Launceston on Saturday 30 September.

This year’s event theme focused on taking bold risks to advance mission, relying on God to do the transforming work of bringing people to know and follow Jesus.
