13–17 February 2023 (Mon–Fri)

Whether you want to have better God conversations with friends and neighbours, find a new layer of confidence in your public speaking, or learn how to use humour effectively in communication, this conference will focus on the power and creativity of language and its origin as a gift from God. Expect a lot of laughter in this no-pressure environment and be prepared to discover gifts you didn’t realise you had. Sessions will include topics such as: ‘You’re Creative because you’re Created’; ‘Missionary to the Arts’ and ‘Evangelism is not a Skill’.
