This is going to be interesting. It’s a ‘conference’ (online) organised by the Church of England – Reimagining 2020. It’s under the umbrella of Evangelism and Discipleship, and follows a series of webinars earlier this year.
There are some speakers who should be worth listening to – Tom Holland (Author/historian), Lucy Moore (Messy Church Founder), Jill Duff (Bishop of Lancaster), Sam Wells (Vicar of St Martin-In-The-Fields and author) as well as Justin Welby (Archbishop of Canterbury).
It seems to set up really well, with opportunities to ask questions, meet up with old friends, discuss in break our rooms … etc etc.
I’ll see how it goes. It’s on the the next three mornings, Tue, Wed, Thu of this week. I have a question that came out of a chat with some friends yesterday:
Parent/Carer and Toddler groups have historically given a great opportunity for meeting young families and building relationships in a Christian setting. In the light of current difficulties, what might be helpful ways to reach out to parents with pre-school children and build some sort of community ?
