Description

Empowering the Church to Empower the Poor.

This Relational Mission conference, led by the Pathways from Poverty team, is open to everyone who wants to be encouraged and equipped, to be part of a church that welcomes the poor and sees lives transformed, as people are empowered to walk on pathways out of poverty.

In the UK and across continental Europe, the church is finding itself coming face to face with an ever growing tide of needs within its local community. From food and fuel poverty, to loneliness, isolation and relationship breakdown, from debt, to housing insecurity, long term unemployment and addictions. These issues are robbing people of hope for the future, damaging the mental health and wellbeing of all sections of our society, impacting young and old alike.

As we connect more and more with people living in and with these difficult circumstances, how do we keep on loving and not grow weary? How do we empower people to move forwards and not create dependencies? How do we enable people to become actively engaged in our local church communities? How do we respond with compassion yet still strive for justice?

Addressing these issues and more are the goals of this valuable and inspiring day. There will be worship, teaching, practical seminars, opportunities to meet new people, browse stands and hear about some great church-based community projects, all designed to help you to make a difference in your local community, bringing hope and transformation to the broken world around us.

We are delighted that our guest speaker for the day is Natalie Williams from Jubilee+, who has co-authored two highly acclaimed books: A Church for the Poor and The Myth of the Undeserving Poor.

As part of the day, there will be a choice of seminars to attend in the morning, stands to visit in the breaktimes and a 'speakers' corner' in the afternoon, where you will have the opportunity to hear directly from projects involved in walking alongside and empowering people in need in their local communities.

Doors open for registration, refreshments and viewing of stands from 9.30 for a 10.00 start.

Ticket prices include refreshments throughout the day and lunch, consisting of jacket potato with a choice of fillings and salads (including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free). Please do let us know if you have any dietary requirements that would not be accommodated by these arrangements.

The Kings Centre is fully accessible for wheelchairs and people with limited mobility, with parking available on-site and on local side roads. Please let us know if you need a disabled space reserved for you and we will try our best to accommodate your request.
