After the success of #Blended16 the Blended conference returns! Whether you would call yourself a 'pioneer' or are just wanting to find out more about Fresh Expressions of Church this event is for you! The Diocese of Ely has a vision to become a 50:50 blended economy by 2025, aiming by this point to have equal numbers of inherited and pioneer communities. This year the conference will explore how new forms of church can become ‘a deeper expression’ alongside the inherited church by focusing on maturity and sustainability. The day will open with worship and have a conversational feel with lots of opportunity to talk, exchange ideas and to hear stories from those who are already on this journey whilst offering a road map for those who want to engage further. The morning will be a time to raise key issues together through facilitated discussion. We are delighted to have Ian Adams with us as our main speaker who will help us to ‘go deeper’. There will be a number of afternoon workshops to choose from which will explore specific subjects in more detail. The day will finish at 3.30pm with a panel discussion and worship. The conference officially starts at 10am but doors will be open from 9.30am as an opportunity to network and make new connections for those who would like to.
