you may remember me blogging about re:source before. it's a partnership between various groups. we ran a year long course for people involved in church planting in the emerging culture. the course ran over 5 weekends through the year. we have been developing things and have appointed someone (beth) part time to direct re:source which i am excited about. we plan to run another course beginning in early 2006. details will be available in the next couple of months. but in the meantime we are running a one off day in birmingham. this is both a stand alone day and also ideal if you think you might be interested in doing the year long course. the web site is hopelessly out of date but will get updated in the next few months as well. here are details of the event in july. you can download a flier/booking form here (pdf) . please pass on the info to anyone you think may be interested
Re:source - Creating Church in the Emerging Culture
Date: Saturday July 2
Venue: Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Birmingham (directions on www.custardfactory.com)
Cost: £10 (lunch not included)
Time: 10:30am - 4pm
Fresh expressions | Emerging church | Missional church | New Mission Movements... whatever you want to call them something's happening. God is beckoning the church into the future and maybe just maybe she is responding. A day of training, encouragement, inspiration and meeting others to include...
* Pall Singh - a visual meditative feast as East meets West, Asian meets alt worship
* Stories/postcards from the edges of what God is doing in a variety of emerging churches
* Andrew Jones (aka TallSkinnyKiwi) will present emergAnt - teaching on emergence and growth in new church movements; and Connectivity and Fuel - practical advice for ongoing mission - how to avoid drying up and getting isolated
* Jonny Baker and Andrew Grinnell - fresh worship, ritual, visuals and tunes
Who's the day for?
Anyone currently involved or wanting to get involved in fresh expressions of church, mission in the emerging culture, or church planting who wants to meet some others who share the same passion, and get a bit of encouragement and input.
