Event description

Description

The Doorsteps network is hosting a conference this autumn aimed at inspiring, equipping and connecting churches to effectively reach out to children and vulnerable families in their community – and make real change possible.

This is more important than ever in light of the changes to local authority provision, with children’s centres closing, and the opportunity this presents for community groups like churches to work together so that struggling families are supported at an earlier stage.

We hope each participant will go away feeling inspired and empowered as to the next step for them and their church and how to do it in collaboration with others.

There will be inspiring speakers, workshops, a marketplace and an opportunity for networking.
