This consultation will bring you together with missional thinkers and practitioners who are facing the crisis across Europe. This will be a unique opportunity to network with other leaders involved in Europe and wrestle together about how to react to the challenges and opportunities before us today. Come think, learn and contribute to the discussion.
What does the economic crisis mean to Europe and to us? Jim Memory will guide us as we think through these complex issues. Jim heads up Redcliffe College’s MA in European Mission and Intercultural Christianity, supports European Christian Mission teams and writes for the research bulletin on mission in Europe Vista.
How are UK churches responding to Europe’s needs? We will hear from the experience of two church leaders. Paul Adams is pastor of Banstead Baptist Church and has just completed a term as Vice-Chair of Global Connections. Uel Marrs heads up the missions team of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, which has in the last few years began to focus more on ministry in Europe.
How can we most successfully promote ministry in Europe today? Evi Rodemann will lead a panel discussion. Evi is Director of Mission-Net, which calls for European youth to live a missional Christian lifestyle. This includes a congress attended by more than 2,500 young people from 35 European countries.
Prayer for Europe will be led by Ian Nicholson, who works with 24/7 Prayer.
Worship will be led by Mike Frith, founding director of the web-based
mission support service OSCAR.
The consultation will be held from 12 noon on 2nd January until 2pm on 3rd January 2013 at Redcliffe College (www.redcliffe.org).
This will cover food and accommodation, including lunch and dinner on 2nd January, and breakfast and lunch on 3rd January.
