6–10 February 2023 (Mon–Fri)

This is a week for anyone who is interested in the role of the church, urban, suburban, semi-rural and rural in today’s world. Yann’s thesis is that church health and growth is not merely a question of mixing truth with entertainment (think apologetics with smoke machines!) but a church replete with authentic, genuine, profound respect and love for creation, for one another, for our inner selves and for God.  Please come with ideas, thoughts and questions to share and be ready to be inspired as we think about how we can develop a greater sense of awe and reverence. 

Who's speaking?
