10 Webinar: Martyn Payne
Families in the ‘hood
This webinar will unpack some of Martyn’s research into Messy Church in challenging rural areas, and offer reflections on ways forward for family ministry in areas of deprivation, be those urban or rural. The session will look at examples of good practice as well as explore some of the significant differences between family ministry in challenging areas as compared to those in more affluent communities, and will also look at the five key values of Messy Church, namely hospitality, creativity, celebration, all age and Christ-centredness.

26 Webinar: Lloyd Pietersen
Reading the Bible after Christiandom
The Bible is regarded as a classic of Western civilization but today is hardly read and its contents are not well known. Christendom used primarily the Old Testament as a foundation for statecraft and marginalized the teachings of Jesus. This webinar will draw from Lloyd’s book with the same title and will explore ways of reading the Bible that take seriously the teaching and example of Jesus.

15 One Great Hour of Sharing
One Great Hour of Sharing reaches those near and far, sometimes changing the life of someone in distress in your own community, while at other times impacting the lives of those we may never meet but who are in need of our compassion. God provides the resources so that we can give back. It’s not the size of the gift that matters; it’s that we give of what we have. We’re simply giving back to God what is already God’s—and that means everyone has a gift to bring!
