Saturday 18 October 2014 9.30am - 4.00pm
The term ‘business as mission’ has many different meanings. But at its heart is the recognition that ‘business’ can be an integral part of the extension of God’s Kingdom.
Organised in partnership with London Institute of Contemporary Christianity and SWAN, together in the South West for world outreach, this day workshop aims to give you the tools to begin to put missional principles into practice in your context.
There will be teaching, seminars, discussion as you explore how you can use your business as mission. UK and overseas seminar streams allow you to focus on your area of interest.
You’ll hear inspiring stories from people already involved and able to explore your next steps in using business as mission.
Anyone wanting to explore and put into practice the principles of business as mission whether in the UK or abroad.
