2019 Reflect was well attended by a wide range of ages and stages of medical students, graduate and retired doctors. Burns Lodge accommodated us all in the marvellous region of Otago and we were blessed to have the support of the University of Otago Chaplaincy and the neighbouring Parish of St Mary's Church.
Thank you to all who gave their time and energy in presenting seminars and leading discussions, as well as those who toiled behind the scenes to get everything ready.
2020 Reflect - Will be hosted in a North Island location with potential dates of 15-17 May or 22-14 May 2020.
Volunteers - We are particularly looking to gather a team of volunteers and helpers for the Manaakitanga / hospitality on-site, comprising of the worship team, evening activity and entertainment, welcome ceremony, and options for local activities. Please contact us to share your ideas or be part of this team.
Saline equips healthcare professionals to impact their workplace for Christ by being SALT and LIGHT.
This is a training process that disciples, trains, and coaches healthcare workers to skillfully and confidently assess where a patient is in their journey towards faith in Christ.
The training provides practical tools to help a Christian demonstrate the love and reality of Jesus in healthcare, all with permission, sensitivity and respect. Within the training, five main questions are addressed:
- Why is faith important to healthcare?
- What are the opportunities and barriers to fulfilling God's call?
- What is my role?
- What are the tools I can use to cultivate, sow and harvest?
- Where do we go from here?
