FuturePresent : Pioneer Conversations Day 2016

This year’s conversation day on pioneering mission is about how we might make a better world now. It’s a day for imagination and creativity. Everything created was at some point an idea, a dream of someone somewhere. Another world is always possible, always dream-able. Always right in front of us. FuturePresent is a chance to dream, to imagine a different future to inspire how we act now.

Join us for a day of imagining together how we can make God’s dreams for our world come true: for our planet, for our cities, for society, for the church, for our neighbourhoods, for us. Now.

Joining us for this, our fourth conversations day: Michael Northcott, Nicola Slee, John Drane, Ash and Anj Barker + many others...maybe you?

We are currently looking for people who want to contribute creatively to this conversation, to dream of the future present. This could be in relation to any area – mission, the workplace, the economy, education, sexuality, community, you name it. We’re calling on speakers, poets, artists, photographers, filmmakers, writers, musicians, storytellers, architects, activists, prophets, theologians, builders, social entrepreneurs, community developers, advocates for justice to gather, present ideas and dream together. 

To contribute, send your idea(s) to FuturePresent@churchmissionsociety.org

The day will be built around our dreams. And our dreams will build our todays. 

Future present is a play on a tense. The future is present. It’s so easy to get stuck in the past continuous tense unable to change or shift out of old ways of doing thinking, being. It's time to change tense.

Any questions contact: pioneer@churchmissionsociety.org
