What does it mean to BE Church in the change now, and what can we recover, retain and reimagine about how to be and do Church in the future?

We are hosting a series of conversations looking at what we might be able to learn so far and how we might reimagine the future. Some important conversations include:

  • The importance of the scattered church, when we cannot gather in normal ways.
  • Creating meaningful connections through Church, in and beyond a digital forum. 
  • The unique role of Church in the Public Square as we serve the most vulnerable alongside social infrastructures.
  • How do we share our faith and point to Jesus in this strange moment, and beyond?

So over the next few weeks each Tuesday and Thursday at 11 am we will be hosting a Zoom session which will last one hour. 

These events are free, there is no registration and you simply click on the links below to join in.

Do consider joining the Evangelical Alliance if you haven’t already. We are a membership organisation made up of individual, church and organisational members. You can find out more and join us here.
