The Idea Explored

Theology will be the focus for the Australian Province at the next Chapter Meeting in Darwin, when members will be hear from the Right Reverend Professor Steven Pickard, Executive Director at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture.

In September 2013, the Right Reverend Professor Stephen Pickard took up the role as the new Executive Director of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture at Charles Sturt University (CSU).

Professor Pickard was head of CSU’s School of Theology from 1998 to 2006. Since then he has served as a bishop in the Archdiocese of Adelaide and as a professorial fellow at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, Oxford. He is currently an Assistant Bishop in the Canberra-Goulburn Diocese.

Professor Pickard is the author of several books, most recently Seeking the Church: an Introduction to Ecclesiology (SCM, 2012) and In-Between God: Theology, Community and Discipleship (ATF, 2011).

It is not the first time Professor Pickard has presented to members. In late 2009 he came to a Chapter Meeting in the Barossa Valley, where he spoke at length on the nature of the Christian faith, centred on Scott Cowdell’s book, Abiding faith: Christianity beyond certainty, anxiety and violence.
