Event description
What does it mean to be a community-engaged, missional church? How can we make our churches more 'now' and inter-cultural?

About this event

This 3-Day conference is about exploring what it means to be a missional Church in an ever changing world. This is a fantastic weekend for anyone who wants to explore what it means to engage their wider community in Mission.

There will be three talks from world-renowned speakers of the field, and a number of workshops that will inform and instruct on a variety of issues around Mission in our world.

Attendees will have an opportunity to sharpen their understanding of what it means for the church and believers to engage in mission, to join with experts and other colleagues in discussion on how to tackle the challenges that face us today.
