The renewal of the church: past, present and future
Guest Speaker: Canon Felicity Lawson
A former chair and trustee of Anglican Renewal Ministries, Felicity oversaw the birth of ReSource in 2004 and rejoined our Trustees in 2018. She retired from full-time ministry in July 2017 after varied ministry in parishes, teaching at St John's College Nottingham, and various diocesan roles. She has seen first-hand the highs and lows of renewal within the church, and this promises to be a fascinating conversation with a seasoned practitioner.
Feel free to bring your lunch!

Seeking a Humbler Church – prophetic voices from estates ministry
Guest Speaker: Revd Sophie Cowan
Sophie is a curate in Peterborough Diocese, and has written a Master's dissertation on 'estate ministry' in working-class areas, focussing particularly on the overlooked voices of women. Join us for a conversation about what the Spirit is saying to the wider church about investment, leadership and ministry, in churches that have often been under-resourced for generations.
Seeing ourselves as others see us – do people expect to find God in the CofE?
Guest Speaker: Revd Dr Stephen Hance
Stephen is National Lead for Evangelism and Witness for the Church of England. His recent Grove booklet, "Seeing Ourselves as Others See Us: Perceptions of the Church of England" will form the basis for our discussion. In a recent Church Times interview, Stephen noted that the Church is “simply not associated with spiritual experience at all”... so how should the church best speak about spiritual reality, and the role of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life?
