Living God's Future Now conversations

‘Living God’s Future Now’ describes a series of online seminars, discussions and presentations hosted by HeartEdge. They are designed to equip, encourage and energise church leaders, laypeople and enquirers alike, in areas such as preaching, growing a church, shifting online, deepening spirituality in a congregation and responding to social need.

The focal event in 'Living God's future now' is a monthly conversation in which Sam Wells explores what it means to improvise on God’s kingdom with a leading theologian or practitioner.

Earlier conversations were with Walter Brueggemann, John McKnight and Chine McDonald. The earlier Living God's Future Now dialogues can be viewed at 

At 6.00 pm on Thursday 13 August, Sam will be in conversation with The Rt. Revd. Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester. Bishop Rachel has made history with a number of firsts: When she became the first female diocesan bishop in the Church of England and when she became the first female bishop in the House of Lords. Register at to receive a zoom invite.

Looking further ahead Sam's conversation partners will be:

  • 10 and 24 September – Stanley Hauerwas (joined by Justin Coleman, UMC, and Debra Dean Murphy, West Virginia Wesleyan, on 24th)
  • 8 October – Barbara Brown Taylor
  • 12 November – Kelly Brown Douglas
