Faith in the Second Half: Leaders Stream

May 11 2021 | 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Due to Covid-19 this event will now be run as an online event on Tuesday 11th May 2021.

We are partnering with Faith in Later Life to bring you a conference about faith in the second half of life.

These sessions are 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 live, to live for Christ.

The 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.

This course aims to inspire, equip and empower those in the second half of life, to live for Christ and resource pastors/ministers.

This leaders stream is part of an event run over 3 days (Tuesday 11th to Thursday 13th May 2021) and you can register for each day separately or all 3 days. For information on the other days of this event please click here.
