Join us at GATHERSOUTH this November
Leaders across the south of England are being invited to GATHERSOUTH, a strategic opportunity to hear inspiring stories from unity movements, to share best practice and be spiritually renewed.
God has been growing strong expressions of relational unity in many cities and towns across the south. From a base of sustained prayer, these interdenominational groupings have been engaged in co-ordinated and strategic mission with a growing dream to see their places transformed
spiritually, culturally and socially.
GATHERSOUTH is taking place on Wednesday, 25 November, 9am for 9.45am until 6pm, at Christ Church Chorleywood, The Common, WD3 5SG. The day is organised by GATHER, a national network of vibrant missional unity movements in England’s villages, towns, cities and boroughs, facilitated by the Evangelical Alliance.
The day’s conversation will be supported by key people helping delegates to think through some important issues:
- Leaders from vibrant unity movements across the south will be sharing best practice from their relational, prayerful and missional expressions of unity. This will include input from Linda Ward, representing the Ealing movement, as well as others to be announced soon on the GATHER website.
- David McNulty, CEO of Surrey County Council, will be giving an overview of the issues the south of England is facing in the light of the austerity cuts.
- Malcolm Duncan, senior pastor of Gold Hill Baptist Church and chair of the Spring Harvest planning group, will be speaking on the theology of transformation and the vision of God for our places.
- Graham Kendrick will be leading the spiritual response to these issues through worship.
- Mark Greene, executive director of LICC, will be sharing on the implications of Christians being transformers of culture in their everyday lives.
- Gavin Calver, director of mission at the Evangelical Alliance, will be sharing his heart for evangelism and how we can work together to see thousands across this nation coming into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
While GATHERSOUTH is primarily a conversation with southern leaders, it is of course open to people from any region who feel this event will help them in their ministry.
Places are limited, so do book soon to avoid disappointment.
