Annual Conference for Theological Educators

Information about the 2018 conference will be placed here very soon

The 2017 Joint Conference

Common Awards / Ministry Development / Theological Educators' Network

12th–14th July, 2017

Formation for a Growing Church?

We need to talk about growth…

We need to talk about our differing understandings of what ‘growth’ means for our churches. We need to talk about the ways in which our work as theological educators, whatever our particular label or role, relates to evangelism and witness. We need to talk about the challenges and opportunities that a focus on growth creates. We need to talk about the effect it does have or should have on the work that we do. We need to talk about how our churches' growth agendas relate to our other priorities. And we need to talk about all this together, learn from one another, challenge one another, and inspire one another.

The 2017 Joint Conference is designed to be a space for all this, and more.

Timetable

A full timetable and details of speakers will be available in due course, but the conference will include:

  • plenary presentations by Elizabeth Adekunle, Archdeacon of Hackney and member of the Archbishop's Evangelism Task Group, and Alec Ryrie, Professor of the History of Christianity at Durham University
  • a range of discussions and workshops on the conference theme
  • a chance to find out about the latest developments in practice and research from around our networks

Practicalities

The conference will start with lunch on Wednesday 12th July, and run through to lunch on Friday 14th. Accommodation is available for Wednesday and Thursday nights, and also for Friday night, for those who need it.

The conference will be held at Collingwood College, Durham (https://www.dur.ac.uk/collingwood/), with some activities at Grey College.

This is a joint meeting of the Common Awards Staff Conference, the Theological Educators’ Network (formerly CAEIMT) conference (http://www.theologicaleducatorsnetwork.org.uk/conference.html), and the Ministry Development network (http://www.ministrydevelopment.org.uk).
