The Conversation is returning- a gathering that will continue to curate space for cutting-edge, innovative, even risky conversations about children, young people and the church.
The Conversation brings people together who are open to change; to reimagine God’s good news for this generation and all generations together, who want children and young people to come into a life-enhancing, transforming and life-long encounter with Christ. Our third event is coming in late January 2020, and will give us an opportunity to explore the theme of ‘Hearing voices: re-imagining ministry with children and young people“. Which voices are we hearing and which voices are not heard? A conversation only exists when people ‘hear’ each other, but what about non-verbal communication? How does our ‘hearing voices’ relate to how God speaks? And how much attention do we give to the speaking that happens in the spaces between words?
The Conversation won't provide answers or 'the next new thing to do' - together our conversation will take us deeper that we might be:
More able to hear
More reliant on God's grace
More like the body of Christ (without any missing limbs)
