    Sue Baker

    Some say Sue is a late starter, and now in her 60s, she’s revelling in her music, since recently retiring. She has always sung, and learned to play guitar at 12.

    Serious songwriting only started after her children left home and Sue finally recorded a debut album “Bit of Earth” in 2010. It was recorded & produced by Jamie Blechynden of Stella Studios of Tanunda. All are original songs written by Sue, and with more where they came from, Sue will be recording a second solo album later in 2019. In 2018, Sue won equal first Peoples’ Choice award at SCALA’s annual FOOM competition for her live performance of “Tonight”.

    Sue’s songs are full of metaphors about life and love, and best described as alternative folk, with hints of country folk, jazz and blues in the mix.

    Sue also performs with her band, The Sourdoughs.

    Check out Sue on her Facebook page Sue Baker Music.

Spiritual Care - Moment to Moment

- Community Announcement -

Thursday 5th September, 6pm-7.30pm
at Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA, City West Campus,
 55 North Tce, Adelaide.

Responding to spiritual needs is well recognised in government policy and best practice guidelines as part of a holistic approach to palliative care. But what do we mean by spiritual needs and what do they look like in the unpredictable and fluctuating environments of palliative care?

This presentation will reflect upon these questions from both philosophical and practical perspective. The forum will consider the individual nature of spirituality and its implications for providing care for those with a life-limiting illness.

Climate Strike in Adelaide

- Community Announcement -

Friday Sept 20, 12 noon, Victoria Square, Adelaide

Let‘s swing in behind the kids! Come with faith-based placards and ARRCC T-shirts (order here) and banner.

It will be three days out from the UN’s Emergency Climate Summit -- by taking the day off school, uni or work, show our politicians that we’re serious about climate action.

We are in the thick of the climate crisis, yet we just elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.

We are already hurting from the impacts of climate change.

If we don’t act now to transition fairly and swiftly away from coal, oil & gas to 100% renewable energy for all, this will only get worse.

But it’s going to take all of us working together to succeed.

The world isn’t waiting so neither are we.

UCLT, 312 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Brooklyn Park, SA

Christian Witness
in a multi-cultural & multi-faith world

How do we bear faithful, public and embodied witness to God's reign in a multi-cultural and multi-faith world? Is it possible to reclaim the Gospel "good news" to all in a post-Christian and post-colonial era?

If mission and evangelism is not about converting others, what does it look like to be witnesses of Christ in a world of xenophobia, racism and violence?

Keynote Speaker: Rev Dr Paul Goh,
Justice and CALD Multicultural & Cross-Cultural Officer, UCA Synod SA

Paul will share his reflections on a seminar hosted by the World Council of Churches at the Bossey ecumenical Institute, Switzerland last August.

An Indigenous immersion experience - October 25-27 2019

- Community Announcement -

TEAR has 12 places available to spend a weekend at Raukkan, an Aboriginal community on Ngarrindjeri land at the mouth of the Murray.

Rose Rigney, Chairperson of the Raukkan Community Council describes the community this way:

I think we Ngarrindjeri have a real gift of hospitality. I think we also have a great system of community and structure. We've always had that and then somebody took it away and said “No we're going to do it this way.” So we sort of fell into that way of thinking but now we're saying “You know what? That way doesn't work for us! Why aren‘t we doing what we always did?” So almost organically we've ended up back at caring for country, mentoring, hosting groups, housing people for the weekend and looking after them - hospitality. We are doing what we've always done.

Rose and her husband Clyde, along with other members of the community, have extended an invitation to TEAR to spend some time with them learning about our shared story through a deeper understanding of their story.
