Kelly Betteridge at CPAS writes with news of their latest "Body Beautiful?" conference. CPAS are really taking on board the agenda for an all-age church, and I hope some of our network will be able to join them for this one:
Why? To inspire, encourage, challenge and equip churches to be good news for all.
Change is in the air today, as many people try to create a genuinely mission-shaped church. Fantastic! But, in our increasingly choice-orientated world is it still possible to create a united Christian community that transcends age barriers and is mission-shaped for all ages?
What does a truly ‘inter-generational’ church look like? How do you shape and grow such a church?
These are just some of the issues we’ll be delving into at Body Beautiful?2 – the second CPAS conference exploring the local church as an all-age community.
The conference will aim to help churches to:
- body-build worshipping communities for all ages
- body-equip ministry for all ages
- body-enable outreach for all ages
