Churches that Change Communities 2018

Events, Ministry to the poor, UK May 11, 2018

Following last year’s fully booked event, we are excited about what is in store for us at Churches that Change Communities 2018! We hope you’ll join us…

(Please note that when you book in, you’ll be asked for seminar choices and email addresses for each person being registered. Scroll to the bottom of this event for seminar info and booking link.)

Over the last year, we’ve seen the needs in our communities continue to grow. In many of our towns and cities, homelessness is increasing, food poverty keeps rising, more and more people are trapped in overwhelming debt. Christians remain at the forefront of tackling poverty and campaigning for justice, but we still have some way to go until we can truly say we have built churches where the poorest and most vulnerable are not only welcomed, but fully included and involved.
I’m delighted to invite you to our national conference, now in its eighth year, on 10 November 2018. It will envision, equip and encourage you to increase your impact on those around you and build churches where people from all backgrounds and social situations worship, lead and serve together. The day will include prophetic teaching, seminars, networking with one another and social action franchises, and worship with an opportunity for prayer. I very much hope you will join us!

Martin Charlesworth, team leader, Jubilee+
