Pursuing Transformation in our Local Community

Session date: Monday 8th August 2016 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: Main Tent Left Session track ,

We will explore how to help the church to realise its local mission. We look at developing authentic relationships with the local community to meet identified need. We will look at how to work with church leaders and members to help them understand their biblical responsibility to serve their local communities and practically how to bring the church through a process of developing a missional response. A panel of church leaders will provide insight and practical examples of successful local community engagement and transformation for both individual churches and churches working together in a local geographical area.
