2021: Celebrating Diversity: Mission together in the global village

4th – 6th June 2021 The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire

We are made in the image of God, with all our incredible diversity. Rather than fragmentation, this gives us the opportunity to celebrate and interact with each other to create a rich and immense collective body of Christ.

Speakers include: British Methodist theologians Prof Anthony Reddie, Rev’d Prof Frances Young and Rev’d Dr Inderjit Bhogal.

Join us to hear how we do mission together across continents and cultures. Meet those involved here in the UK as well as around the world, including mission partners and learn about exciting new initiatives and outreach.

If we are unable to meet face to face, we plan to hold a one-day online conference on Saturday 5th June. If you would be interested in attending an online conference please register your interest by emailing Gillian Pengelly
