“Woven” Survey and Conference   (19/09/19)

“Woven” is a theme being explored by the London District for 2019-21. It centres on the power of storytelling to transform lives. It also reminds us of Jesus’ call to evangelism and discipleship, thus interweaving our lives with communities so that they too may experience and share God’s story.

In preparation for various initiatives around the theme of “Woven”, the London District has set up an online survey to gain a sense of members’ feelings around sharing and living out God’s story. To take part, go to http://bit.ly/londondistrictsurvey. The survey should take 5 – 10 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by Sunday 29th September.

The “Woven” Conference focussing on equipping people confidently to share God’s story and your story will take place at High Leigh Conference Centre on Friday 10th – Sunday 12th July 2020. The keynote speaker will be Dr Elaine Heath, former Dean of the Divinity School of Duke University and Co-founder of the Missional Wisdom Foundation. To book places, go to http://methodistlondon.org.uk/wovenconference. Booking opens on 14th September and ‘early bird’ rates will apply until 29th November.
