Living God's Future Now w/c 20/09/20

'Living God’s Future Now’ is the HeartEdge 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.

Looking Back

Monday saw the kick off the Autumn Lecture series - In What Do We Trust? with a lecture from Tom Holland. Tom Holland is an award-winning historian, biographer and broadcaster. His latest book Dominion is a rich and compelling history of Christendom which won The Sunday Times History Book of the Year in 2019. Have a look here.

See www.heartedge.org to join HeartEdge and for more information.

Over the next few months we are looking at everything from growing online congregations, rethinking enterprise and community action to doing diversity, deepening spirituality and responding to social need.
