Segelberg Trust


The Trust strives to provide a place and opportunity for dialogue and consultation and mechanism to reach youth, about beliefs and spirituality within the areas of Theology, Public Policy and the Environment

The Segelberg Trust was originally established in 1984 by the         Reverend Doctor Eric Segelberg to assist academic studies and research, particularly relating to studies in theology and church matters, and to promote the education and the Christian religion generally.

In 1995, the Segelberg Trust refocused its objectives to promote theological conferences, religious education, music study, and in particular, reaching out to youth who might not otherwise be exposed to the contributions of spirituality and formal religion.

Originally the trust was founded by Rev. Dr. Fr. Eric Segelberg with the original trustees being David Stuewe, Solveig Warren and Fr. Robert Warren. 31 years later and the trust moves from strength to strength with a compliment of 4 trustees, 2 supporting designate and hundreds of volunteers.

Today our trustees are;

Dr. David Stuewe (Chair)                      Fred Warren

Dr. Jan Buley                                       Fr. David Garrett

Fr. Peter Harris                                   James Stuewe (designate)

Trustee Emeritus Rev. Robert Warren
