We know things may seem a little uncertain at the moment but we are definitely going ahead with the 2022 Community of Practice. We’re expecting to meet in person in Coventry but as we know from last year sometimes that’s not possible. Our back up plan is to continue the Community of Practice online via zoom.
To help us plan, we’ve opening the waiting list, allowing you register your interest and receive an email when the tickets go on sale in January.
Join us for our next Community of Practice where we’ll be looking at the future shape of church in the light of all the global and societal changes taking place. We’ll be dreaming together about how we build churches, groups and plant new expressions of church with resilience and sustainability.
As with every Community of Practice and Learning Community we go through the arc of learning. What is – giving us the opportunity to reflect together on what’s working well and where the challenges are; What could be – with outside input to fuel our imagination and What will be – we’ll finish with making our 12 month plans to guide us through the next year.
As a family of churches we are passionate about investing in the next generation, all teams are encouraged to bring younger leaders with them to this year’s Community of Practice. We would especially encourage you to invite young female leaders and leaders from ethnic minority backgrounds to join you on this journey.
We recommend that you bring a team of between 3-6 people although there is no upper limit.
