Journey to the Centre: Pilgrimage to Central Australia

Led by Rev Dr Rob McFarlane

17-25 April, 2021

Limited to 20 places. Deposit deadline extended. All payments fully refundable if the tour is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Central Australia is a rich source of spirituality and beauty. Indigenous culture stretches back tens of millennia, embedded in a landscape many millions of years in formation. European presence has been a complex interaction of domination and compassion. Other people have also walked this country, such as Afghan cameleers, and many still come with a dream to call Australia home. Contemporary Alice Springs is a vibrant multicultural centre. Each of these threads are part of the tapestry we will explore.

Our Journey to the Centre is a geographical journey to the centre of our island home, and is also an emotional and spiritual journey to the centre of our being. We will combine unique opportunities for spiritual experiences as well as visit some of the iconic places of the geographic centre. These will include Campfire in the Heart, worship at Alice Springs Uniting Church, workshops and story-telling with local Christian & Indigenous leaders encountering both the dark and light sides of history, visits to missions, art galleries and studios, and experiencing the “wow factors” of Kings Canyon and Uluru. For our time together we will form an intentional community to which all are welcome.

Contemplative Prayer

A Contemplative Prayer Gathering for those who wish to meet the Beloved in their home sacred space.

Ready for each Wednesday evening, participants will be emailed, in advance, a guided meditation to accompany their contemplative practice.  To receive these offerings in your inbox, email Debbie at Merthyr Road Uniting Church, New Farm, QLD:
