We meet these words daily in our media, but the world of ideas and values seems to be more and more tribal and aggressive; “Do not offend me or I’ll see you in court!” What does a safe community really look like and feel like? And how do we build one?
Join our Messy Extra events as we attempt to define and create a culture where it is safe to come as you are and to ask the questions you want.
TOPIC 1 “Living with Messy Groups: Foundations for Healthy Community.” Hear about the six values that build a healthy group, and watch your family, classroom, committee meeting, church or sports-team become a place where people flourish because they met together in a SAFE PLACE!
meal cost: $10 family or $5 single
Venue: Alstonville Anglican Hall, The Avenue, Alstonville.
(Activities are provided for younger children but older children are encouraged to join in!)
