2019 Speaker

Rev Dr Helen Richmond served for almost 9 years at Nungalinya as a Theology Teacher. She says, “My life has been enriched in many ways through living and working alongside Indigenous brothers and sisters. It has been wonderful working in a place that has the vision of empowering Indigenous Christians. I’ve seen people excited to study the Bible and gain new insights and confidence to live as disciples of Christ in their communities.”

Helen’s previous ministries include being a leader in her church in Multicultural Ministry and working in Mission Studies for the Methodist Church in Birmingham, UK. Helen encourages people to discover and use the gifts God has given in worship, witness and service. “The love of Christ can transform our lives and in turn, the lives of our families and communities”.  Helen is married to Ben Suherman and they have two sons and one grandson. Helen is currently serving as the Minister of Casuarina Uniting Church.
