Name change for annual service

church service
Last year's service was held at St John’s Anglican Cathedral in Brisbane.

Queensland Law Society (QLS) members are invited to the Annual Faith Service for the Legal Profession and the Judiciary on Monday, 11 March.

The Supreme Court of Queensland event, led by Chief Justice Bowskill, will be held at the Albert Street Uniting Church this year.

For many years, the Supreme Court has organised an annual church service which was connected with the Opening of the Law Year. The Chief Justice undertook a review of the church service last year in consultation with members of the judiciary and the legal profession, through the Bar Association of Queensland and QLS, as well as a consideration of the history of the tradition.

Following that review, it was decided the Court would continue to organise an adapted form of this service, to be called the Annual Faith Service for the Judiciary and the Legal Profession.

Consistent with its history, this is intended to be an inclusive opportunity for faith organisations to pray for and/or show support for judicial officers and lawyers, for legal professionals to take the opportunity for reflection and renewal; and for community engagement.

RSVP is Friday, 16 February to Janine.Mitchell@justice.qld.gov.au.

The procession gathers at 9.15am for a 9.25am start. The service begins at 9.30am with morning tea to follow.
