The Annual General Meeting of the Friends of the Auburn Tower Inc was held at Auburn Uniting Church on Monday 29 October 2018. Following the AGM, our guest speaker was heritage architect Fred Batterton, whose subject was St Aldates, Oxford – Repurposing after 1000 years. Mr Batterton has practised in both England and Australia as a heritage architect. His special interest is to help church leaders to make their buildings fully serve their mission in the 21st century. To do this he analyses the specific mission of the local church and assesses its property. He then uses design and innovation to re-purpose existing or build new buildings to support that future mission. The talk was illustrated with slides, and kept the large audience spellbound. The evening concluded with a delicious supper from the newly refurbished Kitchen.
From time to time we'll list other events which might be of interest to the Friends and their friends.
The Tudor Choristers, who rehearse in the Hall at Auburn UC, present their annual Christmas concert, Sing Nowell.
The Australian Boys Choir, which is also based at Auburn, presents A Glorious Christmas at the Melbourne Recital Centre on Sunday 16 December at 3pm.
