WellSpring is 25 years old this year (download the 10-year and 20-year histories here) and we’re celebrating with 25 wonderful things – at least!

1. TEAR donation of $1,322.90 – a wonderfully generous donation for the work of TEAR Australia improving access to clean water and sanitation.

2. A New Invitation: become a WellComer, a WellMaker and/or WellDigger (click here for more information)

3. WellSpring Community Day with guests from the Community of Transfiguration

4. WellSpring AGM – can an AGM be wonderful? Yes! It is the time we gather intentionally as a broad and diverse community to discern and bless the work of WellSpring for the year ahead.

5. New workshops: 

  • Eco Creative Soul Making in a Quiet Garden (with Jude Westrup)
  • Spiritual Companioning (with Elaine Mitchell)
  • To Live and Do Well (with John Steward)
