Other opportunities

ALC Festival of Learning

ALC’s inaugural theological Festival of Learning in February 2021 provided a varied, flexible and engaging program, accessible by anyone anywhere, for participants attending on campus or via live stream. In February 2022, the theme of the second Festival of Learning was ‘Speaking Many Languages, Hearing One Voice’. This was held fully online making use of a virtual attendee hub for the first time.

The February 2023 Festival of Learning was also a fully online event with the theme ‘Holy and dearly loved—called and clothed’.

The theme for the 2024 Festival of Learning is ‘‘Challenging boundaries – life at the edges’’. Planning is underway to hold the festival from Tuesday 20 February to Thursday 22 February 2024.
