On the Road is the third national Anglican Fresh Expressions Conference and is due to take place at the end of November.
The conference is hosted by the Anglican Church and will focus on issues and developments in the Church of England but is open to all to attend. Last year in Leicester over 600 people including grassroots pioneers, messy church leaders, Bishops and young people all came together for the most incredible day of stories, training and inspiration. Andy Freeman from Sheffield was one of the delegates and he helped construct a creative prayer space and Eucharist for the day with fellow CMS Pioneer Jonny Baker. Andy told this website “it was a deeply inspiring day and so great to come together with those across the Church of England trying to reimagine our church for those who currently don’t attend. I loved every minute of it.”
This year the conference will take place on Saturday 25th November at St Michael le Belfrey Church (10am to 4pm) in the centre of York and there will be workshops in several of the other city centre churches. The conference poster is available here to download:
The conference is for everyone committed to evangelism and growth. It is an opportunity for those involved in fresh expressions of church, growing our parish churches, church planting/grafting and pioneering, or who are interested in knowing more.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, will be part of the conference and will deliver a key note address at the start.
The Archbishop said, “I am looking forward to participating in this year’s Anglican Fresh Expressions Conference. During 2017 and 2018 I am undertaking weekend missions within each deanery in the York Diocese, encouraging all to share the love of Jesus Christ with those they meet. As a church we need to reach out to where people are, enabling them to find and explore the love that God has for them and the new life in Christ this brings.”
This is a ticketed event and is £12.50 to attend. For more information, a full timetable and to book your ticket – please visit the On the Road Eventbrite page.
