Life Transformed: Christian Discipleship in the Power of the Spirit
We are excited to announce the first annual Kingdom Theology Conference - a one day conference on Saturday 29th June 2013 at Trinity Church, Cheltenham. Bringing together the best in deep theology with Kingdom values, we hope this conference will be an excellent opportunity to be inspired and encouraged. The conference is hosted by Westminster Theological Centre (WTC) in partnership with Trinity College Bristol. WTC are passionate about connecting the local church with the world of academic theology; it is therefore fitting that the conference will occur in a thriving local church, which is also a base for one of WTC's training Hubs.
