STATEMENT OF INTENT: President
We gather to celebrate a week of worship, fellowship, hard work, and challenging glimpses of the transforming presence of God among us. We are to be fed for the journey home, scattered across the Australian landscape but bound together as a fellowship of the Holy Spirit called to confess Jesus as the beginning of a new creation.
Come let us worship God!
Rev. Dr. Manhong Lin
It is my great honor to stand before you this evening. Before the joint consultation “One Flock, One Shepherd” in 2013, run by the China Christian Council and National Committee of the TSPM and the Uniting Church in Australia, I could never imagine that I would come to Australia, a land where I had never been, twice within a year, let alone to deliver a Cato lecture, when I had no knowledge about who Cato was. I would like to thank the invitation extended by the Assembly, especially from President Stuart McMillan and the Rev. Terence Corkin.

Rev. Dennis Corowa: Lord Jesus Christ. You have put your life in our hands. Now we have put our lives in yours. Take us, shake us, remake us in the image of Christ. Enable us to live as a reconciling community, a people who love and follow Jesus.
