ABOUT US

The Effective Living Centre is a not-for-profit organisation that was established in 1998. Its primary vision is to promote living effectively in our present times and to share with people who wish to broaden and develop their own vision and passion for life.

It is open and available to people of any social, political or religious belief who share our values of respect, compassion, inclusion, fairness, integrity and community.

All our programs and events are offered in a conscious spirit of hospitality, inclusion and respect.

The Effective Living Centre is an ongoing community engagement project of Christ Church – Wayville Uniting Church.

We invite supporters to join as “Friends of the ELC.” The annual fee is $30 for an individual or $40 for a family, which helps to provide necessary financial support for our work.  Friends of the ELC can access discounted ticket prices for all ELC events and activities and receive our newsletters.

Events & support

We are able to hire out our facilities for courses and seminars – small or large – and to provide administration services for other community organisations. Cooperative initiatives are seen by the ELC as a way of participating in personal and community development with others. We also welcome suggestions about seminar topics and other ideas.
