At the conference we’ll be

  • Exploring the Old and New Testaments, what we can learn from history and unpacking what it is to be a ‘Kingdom Community’ today.
  • Asking what part do marriage and families play in community life? How do we live lives, marriages and family life – that are distinct as well as model community?
  • Seeking to understand some of the barriers and challenges involved in growing community. We particularly want to help those who often feel left out.
  • Hearing about what others are doing to build community.
