How to Survive the Mid-Faith Crisis!

8–12 June 2020 (Mon–Fri)

Have you ever looked around you at church at all the happy people and thought to yourself ‘Is this it?’ Are new questions kicking out the old answers? Do you sense that there might be a bigger, more exciting faith out there? Join Nick Page and Joe Davis (the hosts of the Mid-Faith Crisis Podcast) as they provide a safe place to explore the challenges of ‘living faith’ in a fresh, engaging and occasionally irreverent way.
