The St James’ Institute, in conjunction with Trinity College, University of Melbourne, presents:
The Robin Sharwood Lecture in Church Law

Wednesday 17 March| 7:15pm-8:30pm | St James’ Church

Will the Ties that Bind Break Under the Strain? The Future for the Constitution of the Anglican Church of Australia

This topic is relevant in light of the current issues facing the Anglican Church after the Commonwealth legislative reforms permitting same sex marriage and the recent Appellate Tribunal decisions in regard to the blessing of marriages, including same sex marriages, and clergy discipline. The lecture will not be limited to these issues, but they will be used to highlight the broader issues with the current Constitution and explore what the future could be for the Constitution and the Anglican Church of Australia.

The fourth Robin Sharwood Lecture will be delivered by the Honourable Justice Debra Mullins AO. Justice Mullins was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court of Queensland in 2000. Justice Mullins is the Chair of the Church Law Commission of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Australia.
