Our first parents entered a world without sin, death or decay; they left it in the grip of all three, in what Paul calls 'bondage to corruption'. Understanding our beginnings will help us to understand ourselves and the world we live in. As in so many other areas we will discover that truth is stranger (and often more complex and 'thick with meaning') than fiction.
The National Conference brings together members at all stages of their career. There are separate seminar tracks for:
