2020 CHURCH PLANTING CONFERENCE
Happened on Thursday 25 June 2020
We’re excited that Multiply: 2020 Church Planting Conference is moving online on Thursday, 25 June. We are seizing the opportunity to gather to explore the possibilities and challenges of multiplying disciples, churches and networks in this new reality and we’d love you and your teams to join us.
We are creating an online experience to equip, stimulate and inspire you for the next season of ministry. We are bringing together movement leaders and speakers from England and further afield, as well as testimonies from church planters who are breaking new ground. Learning together, we will explore turning increased online attendance into discipleship, growth and multiplying churches.
Those interested in or exploring church planting, church planters and their teams, sending church leaders, and those who oversee church planting strategically.
Join us online to hear movement leaders and speakers presented on YouTube and via Zoom, along with stories from church planters and seminars. There will be morning main sessions and afternoon interactive options.
Session 1: Change - The message hasn’t changed but how it’s communicated has. Overnight, the church went online, against all the odds. We are adapting and learning as never before. How do we create or renew churches both now and in the coming months and years?
Session 2: Courage - Whilst this is one of the most exciting times for the church, it is also one that requires huge courage to lean into reaching new people in new places in new ways, both personally and corporately. What can we learn from others? What risks do we need to take?
