Description

We are excited to invite you to the 2018 Church Planting Forum that is coming to Coventry on 21st February 2018 at Bethel Church, Spon End, Coventry, CV1 3HB.

History and Vision

Church planting has come onto the agenda of local churches, networks and the denominations with increasing urgency in the last five years. There has been a huge shift since the two “Mission 21” church planting conferences held in Sheffield in 2006 and Bath in 2009. We could almost date the growth of interest in church planting from that time.

Some of the resurgence of church planting has been very grass roots in its orientation, especially amongst the black majority churches who have often led the way in enthusiasm, vitality and activity in church planting. New initiatives, especially from Fresh Expressions and the concept of Missional Communities have expanded our understanding of church planting.

The Church Planting Forum was begun as an annual event in 2013 to help us reflect together on what God might be up to in the arena of planting. The Vision of the Church Planting Forum is to facilitate a gathering of strategic Church Planting leaders to explore issues and exchange ideas through conversation and dialogue.

Purpose

The Purpose of the National Church Planting Forum is:

  • To bring key UK church planting leaders from different tribes, traditions, denominations and movements into conversation with one another
  • To explore together strategic church planting issues and concerns
  • To look beyond our immediate horizons to what may lie ahead
  • To share best practice ideas that enhance effective church planting
  • To listen to one another’s stories and experiences
  • To build relational networks that support and encourage one another

Format

  • A one-day Forum to be held on 21st February 2018
  • A presentation of mini seminars on church planting themes
  • Facilitated conversations in break out groups to explore issues and exchange ideas on a number of church planting concerns and issues
  • Time for friendship building and networking over coffee and lunch
  • Feedback sessions to correlate our shared thinking and conversations
  • Identify next steps: Where do we go from here?

Themes for the day

The Forum this year will focus on Church Planting and Multiculturalism including:

1. Europe: An emerging multicultural context

2. Church planting among specific people groups

3. Planting multicultural congregations

4. Practical skills for cross-cultural mission

We hope that you will join us for the 2018 Forum as we explore issues and exchange ideas to help us become more informed about church planting and to learn from one another. Lunch and refreshments are provided as part of the ticket price.
