the last few years we have hosted a day reflecting on a theme related to pioneering mission. as a result of the first two we published a couple of books - the pioneer gift and pioneering spirituality. reflections from the missional entrepreneurship conversation went to an edition of anvil journal and we are working on a zine from last year's futurepresent still which will be available next year. there's been a real buzz at all the days. this year we decided to almost bring it full circle and focus on mission. this is party because cms have been running a campaign called 'mission is' which has involved interviewing hundreds of people over the summer about how they perceive mission. because we now have a hub in romford at st cedds centre for pioneering mission there is a day in both locations.
i have not yet spoken at one so am making my debut as one of the keynotes. i'll be sharing the thoughts i prepared for the louis luzbatek lecture in chicago at both - called 'do it from the inside'. ann morrisy who is wonderful is the other keynote in oxford with another 9 workshops to choose from which include among others mike pears (whose work i have been really inspired by), cate williams, cathy ross. and mark berry is the other keynote in romford along with 6 workshops i think - details are on the pages linked to below. the day is great value at £20 including lunch.
there are only around 10 places left for oxford which is next tuesday november 7, there's definitely still spaces in romford which is on sat november 11 but book your place a.s.a.p.
