Some programme highlights:
Stuart Murray Williams, author of Church After Christendom and The Naked Anabaptist, will be helping us to consider the bare essentials of an Anabaptist approach to being and forming church in a Post-Christendom era.
Juliet Kilpin and Karen Sethuraman, founders of AMN projects Peaceful Borders and SoulSpace, will share their stories and give insight into how they express the Anabaptist values of peace and justice – Juliet as she accompanies those responding to forced migration, and Karen working for peace in a Belfast neighbourhood.
Lloyd Pietersen, author of Reading the Bible After Christendom, will be exploring how, from an Anabaptist perspective, we might approach the Bible and theology as churches and missional communities.
Barney Barron, Lynsey Heslegrave and Alex Ellish, from the AMN Church Planting and Pioneering initiative, will be encouraging conversation about worship, prayer and discipleship and helping us discern together the future of the network of churches, projects and missional communities going forward.
There will also be space for encountering God with different expressions of worship and prayer over the weekend, including through an experience of Godly Play and ending our gathering by breaking bread together.
