All TogetherIt's time to worship together, ALL together...that means mums and dads, brothers and sisters, uncles, aunties, grannies, grandads, cousins, friends, neighbours, dogs, your friend's neighbour's dog...it means absolutely everyone coming together for one purpose... to worship the King. Join Sam Hargreaves, Bob Hartman and Play it by Ear as they lead you in song, storytelling and drama as well as plenty of action packed silliness. Come on everyone, let's do this All Together!

Seminar: Embracing HopelessnessThis section argues that hope is a middle-class privilege designed to domesticate marginalised communities. If the disenfranchised seek liberation, then they must begin the process of decolonising their minds by rejecting Eurocentric theological concepts.

Seminar:
The Gospel and the treasure of the Kingdom
Proclaiming and then entering into the kingdom is at the heart of healthy evangelism. The former provides the call; the latter our response. And when we respond we are taken into a whole new world where nothing can ever the same: our morality, our experience of God, our vision of God, our commitment to the church, the gifts God gives us, and the disciplines needed to sustain these amazing gifts of grace.
Then the Connexional Team will host a panel of people led by Alison Ransome (Vocations Advisor and a Regional Coordinator in the Learning Network) to explore ideas raised by Prof. Billy Abraham. The panel will reflect on how to apply his teaching to our own context. If you have questions related to the seminar which you want the panel to discuss you will be able to send them in.
