THE HUGUENOTS: FRENCH REFORMERS – THEIR FAITH & DIASPORA

A one-day conference and dinner hosted by the Huguenot Society of Australia.

This year, 2017, marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a major movement which changed the face of Western Christianity and European culture forever. The Huguenot Society of Australia is marking this significant anniversary with a historical conference about the French Protestants, the Huguenots, who were an important part of this movement.

Speakers will consider aspects of the Huguenot story in France, in Britain and other parts of Europe, and of their descendants in Australia. The keynote speaker will be Dr Robin Gwynn, former Associate Professor at Massey University in New Zealand, and a world authority on Huguenots in Britain. The conference will be followed by a dinner in the evening, and promises to be a stimulating and enjoyable event. All are welcome.

Date: 4th November 2017, 10am – 6pm, followed by dinner.
Venue: ’99 on York’, York St, Sydney.
Cost: $210 per person (including dinner) $150 per person (excluding dinner) Early bird discount of 10% until 15th September.
