Saturday Workshop:

Rediscovering spirituality that sustained the past to meet the challenges of the future

Rev. Tom Stuart has been in ministry in the Uniting Church in rural parishes for 25 years.  He is now located in Newcastle.  Tom is a devotee to Jesus portrayal of “the kingdom of heaven” as “yeast that enters the dough”.  Tom has helped initiate many local community endeavours to act as yeast that releases the latent good in the community.  Over the last 10 years Tom has committed to contemplative spiritual practices and has trained as a Spiritual Director.  These practices and training have helped him consciously bring to the vagaries of life, relationships, and community, life giving energy available to all of us.  His endeavour now is to assist others intentionally access this energy to take to the best and worst of their lives
