New College Lectures 2019

The New College Lectures Trust has invited the Anglican and Catholic Archbishops of Sydney, Glenn Davies and Anthony Fisher, to participate in a landmark lecture series.

This will be the first set of public lectures jointly delivered by Catholic & Anglican Archbishops in Australian history.

The Archbishops will articulate the importance and relevance of faith, hope and love for contemporary Australian society where competing voices and institutions wrestle to define and influence the national conversation.

Rather than our traditional format, both Archbishops will present on each of the three nights, followed by a Q&A with the media and members of the community. The series will be moderated by distinguished historian and broadcaster, Dr Meredith Lake.

Faith – Lecture 1

Please also join us for complimentary canapes from 6:00pm (RSVP essential)
