“I’ve been a part of the Banyule Theological Hub since 2017 and initially I just thought it would be an opportunity to brush up on some of the finer points of my belief. Instead I found myself drawn deeper into the rich world of theological ponderings and questioning. The opportunity to re-examine my faith in my mid-fifties wasn’t something I had originally considered but I became more and more interested in looking at why I believed what I did.
 The opportunity to learn with others and incorporate lessons into our shared worship in the Network has been invaluable. I’ve found the chance to continue incorporating my faith and life has been immeasurably enriched by the teaching offered via the Banyule Hub.”

“Our theology hub at Banyule is a great way to get deeper into matters of faith and big issues alongside significant people in my local church. As a bonus we get to study with top-notch university teachers who always manage to make their topics interesting and accessible but never dumbed-down or prescriptive. Through our hub I have worked through questions that have been bugging me for years, without becoming disconnected from my local faith community. I am also confident that I am learning good quality theology and building discernment skills that will help me follow Jesus in the real world for years to come.”
