Faith in the Second Half (FISH) Leaders’ Stream
5th May 2020 - 6th May 2020
We are partnering with Faith in Later Life (www.faithinlaterlife.org) to bring you a conference about faith in the second half of life.
This stream of seminars is aimed at church leaders and anyone involved in leading ministry with older people so they are resourced to inspire, equip and empower those in the second half of life, to live for Christ.
These sessions will provide an opportunity to hear from Bible teachers and others with expertise in ministry with Seniors, who are able to provide insight into the theology of later life as well as pastoral and practical application, both in church and wider community settings. Delegates will also be able to engage with an expert panel, with an opportunity to have their questions answered.
