'The Changing Face of Europe' Day Conference
The Changing Face of Europe – green shoots and opportunity
26th October 2019 0915-1400
Woodlands Church Belgrave Road Bristol BS8 2AA
With Europe constantly in the news it is an opportune time to examine the spiritual needs of the continent and how we can respond. How much do we understand our continent and the opportunities for reaching people with the Good News of Jesus? Many people are increasingly secular, but others are finding a home with new moves of the Spirit. Many are being left behind economically and there is mass migration from violence, war and poverty but also new engagement with Christianity of religiously diverse communities. In the midst of this rapidly changing context, we have a unique opportunity to display a God who loves and cares.
Matthew Skirton (OM), James Vaughton (TEN), Debbie Wright (Burn 24/7 and Woodlands Church) and others with first hand experience in Europe will serve us throughout the morning to inspire and equip us to bring hope and renewal.
The day also involves: Seminars on Church Partnerships, Secularism, Migration and refugees, Immigrant Communities, Prayer and more ... Exhibition with Agencies and groups working in Europe ... Books and Resources to help us respond.
