Can broken people really be restored?

Come and interact with our panel of specialists:

  • Dr Jeremy Rawlins (medical)
  • Dr David Michie (psychological)
  • Dr Brian Harris (theological)
  • We also have a man whose life could be described as having been restored. Wayne Hicks will share, briefly, his personal story of restoration.

About This Event

The panellists each will approach the question from their own area of expertise, and there will be room for questions.

The evening begins with a light meal, which has been kindly hosted by the members of Freshwater Church, who are committed to adding value to their local community. The event called Fresh Talk is free and it is designed to be one of many that will consider some of the awkward questions we face.

The event will be held at the Palms Community Centre, corner of Rokeby & Thomas Roads, Subiaco, Perth from 6:00 - 9:00pm.
