Inspiring Christian Faith in Schools
On Saturday 15 October 2016 :: Doors open at 9.30am and will close at 3.30pm
Held at Waingels College, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4RF
Keynote speaker is Rev Dr Kate Coleman
It is with great excitement that Rev Dr Kate Coleman will to speak to us at our Conference. We are sure that you’ll enjoy hearing her both in the morning and afternoon.
Our purpose is three-fold:
- to affirm and encourage these Christians in their vocation
- to inspire schools and churches with stories of what is possible when they work together
- to give delegates:
- an opportunity to see, hear and experience what resources and initiatives are available to support Christian education and ministry
- to be inspired by fresh thinking on children’s spirituality
We will achieve this by:
- having an inspiring and visionary keynote speaker, Rev Dr Kate Coleman.
- providing opportunity for peer to peer sharing of resources via an exhibition space and workshops.
- providing an opportunity to network and hear about initiatives that work elsewhere
