“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” Ephesians 4.16
Following the success of the Growing Hope Conference held November 2013, St Davids Diocese will be holding Growing Hope 2 as part of the continuing Diocesan Strategy.
The Keynote Speaker at this event will be the Venerable Ian Bishop, Archdeacon of Macclesfield and an associate member of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s ReSource Team.
So, if you missed the first Growing Hope here is an opportunity to attend this further inspiring and informative event in Growing Hope 2.
At the first Growing Hope, a selection of workshop leaders inspired us by explaining how they stepped out in faith and prayer to launch successful new initiatives in their churches and communities. These were offered as ‘tasters’, in celebration of the signs of hope, growth and new life around us.
Growing Hope 2 will be brought to you on a similar basis of workshops and mini lectures, with our keynote speaker the Venerable Ian Bishop himself leading a workshop on Prayer Visiting.
Once again we will be encouraging groups of up to 10 people to be sent by their benefice, each attending a different workshop during the day. Hence a minimum of five people from each benefice is to be desired.
We hope the delegates will once again take their experiences of the conference back to their churches to share more widely.
The cost is to remain at £30 per group of 10 people or pro-rata. In return you will have: an inspiring, hope-filled day; refreshments at break times; a simple lunch; an opportunity to hear good news stories from across our diocese and beyond; a chance to renew acquaintances and to make new friends.
