Christ Church Liverpool has 25 different nationalities attending the church every week. So how can churches with such diverse communities best reach the nations on their doorstep? Ken Lippold introduces us to a conference that is seeking to start the conversation.
Last week was our first ever Leaders’ Conference in Torquay. Numbers were higher than ever as we enjoyed fellowship together and teaching from Thabiti Anyabwile. We asked Dan Steel to give us his reflections.
Ticket? Check. Accommodation? Check. Travel? Check. Weather? Well, no guarantees. Phil Topham looks ahead to next week’s Leaders’ Conference by outlining some new seminars and some of the great resources that will be available.
More than 50 people who are reaching tough housing estates across Britain attended the Church in Hard Places (CiHP) conference in May hosted by New Life Church Middlesbrough. David Thomas went along and we asked him to share his reflections.
How can we make sure we don’t stagnate in our Christian lives? The Spring Ministers’ Conferences organised by the Proclamation Trust were aimed at helping pastors to stay fresh in their service, but Adrian Reynolds says the principles apply to all of us.
What’s the role of the local church in reaching the nations of the world for Christ? Phil Tinker introduces us to a day-conference later in February designed to help churches focus on this vital task of world mission.
Our Leaders’ Conference returns in November 2017. We’re going to a brand new venue but we’re taking the same ambition – to encourage and equip church leaders for their ministry in Independent churches. John Stevens introduces us to this year’s main theme and some of the speakers who will join us.
