For the first time the Church Mission Society are running their Conversations Day in a second location.
For Chelmsford Diocese on 11 November – We are delighted to be working in partnership with our first regional pioneer hub, the St Cedd Centre based in Collier Row, and will be welcoming keynote speaker, Jonny Baker, who is speaking about ‘Mission is…done from the inside?’ Additional keynote will be given by Mark Berry, pioneer of Safe Space in Telford and co-author of A New Monastic Handbook and a new Grove Book on how mission flows out of community.
We will enjoy workshops with Vanessa Conant, speaking on Mission as community development. Vanessa Conant is the Team Rector in Walthamstow. Janet Nicholls, Rural adviser and Agricultural chaplain to the Diocese of Chelmsford, is presenting on rural mission. Ordained Pioneer Minister in Billericay, Dan Pierce, has the intriguingly entitled session ‘Mission is…messed up: Why it doesn’t work and why it’s not supposed to!? Janie and David Beales from DNA Networks in Colchester will share their experience of creating and developing missional clusters and Rachel Summers, who is a student at St Cedds, will talk about mission and social media.
Tickets are now on sale, £20 including lunch, please follow the link to the Pioneer Conversations Day Eventbrite page for either location.
