Seeking the Face of God

1–5 April 2020 (Wed–Sun)

This theme will explore our hearts’ longing: the Biblical invitation to “Seek the Face of God” and its New Testament recasting in the phrase “the glory of God . . . in the face of Christ”. Biblical and missional insights, and examples from history, contemporary experience and the visual arts will be used. The aim of this week is to deepen and enrich our own hunger for, and experience of, the Living God, and to equip us for the continuing journey.
