Ms Bridie Boyd
Raising Young Women to be Leaders
Kia Ora, my name is Bridie and I am an enthusiastic advocate for women in the church. I work with youth and young adults, enjoy passionate theological debates, and playing board games. I have lived in the Middle East, U.K. and Canada and am very pleased to be settling down in the country of my birth- Aotearoa New Zealand.
My workshop is: Raising Young Women to be Leaders– a lot of places have a particular idea as to what a leader, and a leader who is a woman, might look like. This talk challenges some of these understandings and asks us to reflect on how we can carve multiple paths to many different forms of leadership for young women. The workshop will dive more deeply into this, and will help people to reflect on their own context and the experience of the young women in their own community. A workshop for both young women and those supporting young women alike!
Bridie has gained a BTheol, BA, PGCertChap,, and is the Children, Youth and Young Adults Worker for an Anglican Parish.

Revd Julie Guest
Crickeats: Protein in leaps.
The why-would-you-bother and how-to’s of home cricket farming. A taste for the brave and recipe to try.
Our west facing garden is one side of a gully which slopes down to a brook. Across the stream the gully paddocks occasionally hold dairy cows. We have our chicken coop on the flat at the bottom alongside vege gardens to catch the sinking sun in winter. A stand of native trees attract many birds, especially tui.
I am priest, wife, mother of five children and grandmother to one, lover of the beach, camping and living as lightly on the planet as I can. I dream of owning a bee-hive, and the perfectly productive sustainable garden where caterpillars thrive but so do my crops!
