Living God’s Future Now: Week commencing 30 August 2020

'Living God’s Future Now’ is our mini online festival of theology, ideas and practice.  Created to equip, encourage and energise churches - from leaders to volunteers and enquirers - at the heart and on the edge.  

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.  

'Thank you for all you are supporting and enabling - I absolutely love everything that comes out of HeartEdge.' The Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester
