Daniel in Exile – a Model for Church Leadership Today

Anglican Futures

According to Justin Welby last November, world Anglicanism is a ‘flourishing Communion but also a divided Communion’.  The Church of England is not immune: churches are growing, yet tensions are rarely far away. 

This year’s DEF conferences – daytime in St Albans, evening in Bedford -  take a candid look at the challenges and opportunities facing evangelicals in the Church of England and the wider communion. What will it mean for us to act with principled and loving biblical faithfulness?  How should we relate authentically to those who deeply disagree with us?  And what are the opportunities for the gospel in current debates?

Inclusive and Orthodox

Sex and Sexuality: being inclusive and orthodox.
A day to study the Biblical texts, pastoral responses and the political scene.

Thursday 22nd January, 10:30am - 3:30pm at Holy Trinity, Frogmore (AL2 2FE)
