Living God's Future Now - w/c 5 December 2021

Living God’s Future Now is our online festival of theology, ideas and practice. Join us for talks, workshops and discussions. Living God's Future Now is designed to equip, encourage and energise churches—from leaders to volunteers and enquirers—at the heart and on the edge.

The online programme includes:

  • Regular weekly workshops: Sermon Preparation (Tuesdays) and Community of Practitioners (Wednesdays)
  • One-off workshops on topics relevant to lockdown such as ‘Growing online communities’ and ‘Grief, Loss & Remembering’

A free four-week webinar series with Jonny Baker and guests, run in partnership between HeartEdge and Church Mission Society (CMS). Sign up here for access to all the webinars, running on these dates:

  • 13 January: Be You
  • 20 January: See
  • 27 January: Build
  • 3 February: Change

As a pioneer, you see something — a possibility, an idea, a way that things could be better or new of different. Then you make something happen out of what you see.

This webinar series explores over four weeks how pioneering happens in practice. Its focus is how things happen on the ground. Each week Jonny will have two or three guests and get into the gritty day to day of how they pioneer.
