Description

Working in collaboration with other town chaplaincies we are launching The Alliance of Town and City Chaplaincies (ATCC) at a national conference in Luton on the 16th April 2015. This has been an exciting journey since our first conference in April 2013 when it was unanimously agreed that the Lord is doing something extraordinary in the UK through Chaplaincy, and there was a perceived need to develop a national network – which we have now called ATCC.

The dream is to form a strategic movement sharing knowledge, resources and best practice in order that we can reach those who are searching for meaning and purpose in an increasingly vulnerable post-modern world. This is an opportunity to see how we can work together in unity with the local church in our communities in order to see ‘His Kingdom Come and His Will be Done’ in our towns, cities and villages.

The conference is an opportunity to pray, worship and meet with like-minded people who have a passion to see the UK transformed through the many new expressions and models of town and city Chaplaincies we see in the 21st century. It is an opportunity to become a member of a movement whose roots are deep and go as far back as the 4th century. There is so much to learn from each other as culture and society change - but the message remains the same.

The conference will inspire us as we hear from Nigel Tween (former Principal of Regents Theological College and Director of Training for ELIM Pentecostal churches) as to how the Pentecostal movement in the UK has grabbed hold of town chaplaincy. And it will inform us as we cover the practical aspects of funding and recruitment and retention of volunteers.

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day, but please bring your own packed lunch - or alternatively there are a number of sandwich bars and pubs close to the venue. In addition, the main town centre is only 5 minutes walk away.
