    The road map back to public church meetings in NSW - with Michael Stead

    The road map back to public church meetings in NSW - with Michael Stead

    Childrens’ ministry leaders who have not been vaccinated will be asked to temporarily stand down from their ministry roles in NSW Churches. 
    South Sydney Anglican Bishop Michael Stead expects a vaccination certificate to be required for kids ministry, in the same way a Working with Children Check is required. 
    Dr Stead says churches will be required to submit updated COVID safe plans.  The plans include questions about ventilation and checks to ensure active steps are being taken to ensure church staff and key volunteer personnel have been vaccinated, especially those involved in ministries to children. 
    At the 70% double vaccinated point, Dr Stead says kids ministries likely won’t be able to function inside church buildings.  They will be permitted to operate outside. 
    Dr Stead says as a result many churches are planning to delay re-opening until the 80% mark is reached, meaning re-opening on 31 October 2021. 
    Dr Stead has conceded that it’s inevitable that one of our churches will be the site of a super spreading event, and that it won’t be the fault of the local leadership. 
    Dr Stead has urged Christians on both sides of the vaccination debate to read Romans 14 twice. The first time he urges substituting ‘eat meat’ with ‘get vaccinated’ and the second time with ‘not get vaccinated.’

    Find Life that lasts: A national co-ordinated evangelism campaign - with Rico Tice and John MacKinnon

    Find Life that lasts: A national co-ordinated evangelism campaign - with Rico Tice and John MacKinnon

    How could we build back better after COVID?  Could evangelicals unite together to rebuild the church with a national co-ordinated evangelistic campaign?
    COVID has created an unprecedented opportunity for evangelism, but churches and church leaders are feeling fragile and weary. 
    In Great Britain, churches are getting set for a national campaign leading up to Easter 2022, under the banner ‘Find life that lasts. It’s closer than you think.’  
    Directors Rico Tice and John MacKinnon join us to talk through the origins and purpose of Passion for Life (https://www.apassionforlife.org.uk/)

    Mandatory Vaccinations to enter churches? - with Phil Colgan, John McClean & Akos Balogh

    Mandatory Vaccinations to enter churches? - with Phil Colgan, John McClean & Akos Balogh

    What will happen in churches after the third wave of COIVD as the freedoms return to Australia over the next two months? 
    When vaccination rates reach 70% venues, including places of worship are likely to be reopened, and even more when the rates reach 80%.
    Governments are planning more freedoms for those who are double vaccinated.  But will they impose restrictions on who can attend worship? 
    Our guests are:
    Akos Balogh, Executive Director of the Gospel Coalition Australia
    John McClean, Acting Principal of Sydney’s Christ College (Presbyterian)
    Phil Colgan, Minister of St George North Anglican Church
    Are vaccine Passports a Religious Freedom Issue For Bible Believing Christians or not? And if the government doesn’t make it a requirement, how should local church leadership think through what expectations to put on staff, members and guests? 
    Plus what’s our panel’s reaction to the Ezekiel Declaration?

    The euthanasia debate and what if we lose? - with Megan Best and Andrew Errington

    The euthanasia debate and what if we lose? - with Megan Best and Andrew Errington

    What are the consequences if euthanasia is legalised?  And how do we fight the issue?
    Legislation is before the Queensland Parliament and is about to come to the parliament in the UK and in New South Wales to allow euthanasia. 
    And laws permitting euthanasia have already been passed in Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand… there’s a bit of a sense that even if the conservatives succeed in holding out this time…  at some stage it feels like it will happen.
    Euthanasia is illegal in most of the United States, although significantly it is legal in the more progressive Washington, D.C. and seven states.
    Andrew Errington is Senior Minister of Newtown Erskineville Angican Church. 
    Megan Best is a palliative care doctor and  associate professor with the Institute for Ethics and Society at the University of Notre Dame.

    Smuggling Christ into popular culture - with Greg Sheridan

    Smuggling Christ into popular culture - with Greg Sheridan

    Australia (or the west) is simultaneously post Christian, Christian and pre Christian according to Greg Sheridan, one of the most respected and influential analysts of domestic and international politics. 
    How can Christian writers and artists, or even non Christian writers and artists who think Christianity has something important and worthwhile to say, speak into the confused and hostile culture of today?
    Greg started at The Australian newspaper in 1984.  And has been it’s foreign editor since 1992. 
    Greg has just published: ‘Christians: The urgent case for Jesus in our world’, following on from his 2018 book ‘God is good for you: A defence of Christianity in troubled times.’ 
    We talk the media, Christians in the Media, the case for Christ today, and the faith of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
