Is the Church of England drinking in the last chance saloon? An invitation to discuss the future at our next Pivot^Point event on Thursday 16th April…
Dear Fulcrum Subscriber,
We realise this is a very busy time of year for many. But we wanted to let you know about our next Pivot^Point event – happening in a few weeks time.
Pivot^Points aims to get the conversation going about how we can play our part in growing God’s Kingdom. This series will look at a wide variety of topics, but will always revolve around that core theme. The next event is happening on Thursday 14th April from 6-8pm.
Earlier this year, a series of reports were published by the Church of England. In this session, we’ll attempt to explain what they mean, assess their strengths and weaknesses and answer the fundamental question: Will the reform and renewal programme play a part in reversing the decline in numbers in our congregations?
Our two speakers are:
The Rt Revd Pete Broadbent – Bishop of Willesden. He is the Chair of the Spring Harvest Leadership Team and was a longstanding member of the General Synod. He chaired the Church of England’s task group on simplification which has recommended wholesale changes to the way the church is administered.
The Revd Dr Ian Paul – one of the leading Christian bloggers in the UK. He is Associate Minister of St Nic’s, Nottingham, Director of Publishing at Grove Books and an honourary (sic) lecturer at the University of Nottingham. Ian has written about the Church of England’s reform process – especially as it affects ministerial training.
Chairing the event is The Revd Rachel Marszalek – Vicar of All Saints, Ealing. She’s a prolific blogger, involved in New Wine Women, the Junior Evangelical Anglican Network and the General Secretary of Fulcrum.
The event is happening in the newly opened conference centre at St James the Less, Pimlico – located very close to Victoria tube station. All you need to do to secure your ticket is to register via eventbrite simply by clicking here (also click that link for more information on the event).
Please pass this invitation on to anyone in your church (or anyone else!) who may be interested in this fascinating and vital topic.
With every blessing for a profound and joyful Holy Week and Easter,
The Fulcrum Team
