Faith in the Second Half: Leaders’ Stream – Now running in 2021

May 5 2020 | 1:00 pm - May 6 2020 | 1:00 pm

**Unfortunately this event has been cancelled this year due to the Coronavirus but will now be taking place in 2021.

We are partnering with Faith in Later Life 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.  

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

We are also holding a general stream – Monday 4 to Thursday 7 May – for anyone in later life, or for those who want some practical ideas about how to engage older people in your local community, or loved ones. Click here for more info.
