Living God's Future Now w/c 19 July 2020

Events This week - Church Leaders, Laypeople & Enquires Welcome

'Living God’s Future Now’ is our mini online festival of theology, ideas and practice.   
 
We’re developing this in response to the pandemic and our changing world. The church is changing too, and - as we improvise and experiment - we can learn and support each other. 
 
This is 'Living God’s Future Now’  - talks, workshops and discussion - hosted by HeartEdge. Created to equip, encourage and energise churches - from leaders to volunteers and enquirers - at the heart and on the edge.
