Ekklesia 2019: Church Leaders' Conference - Milton Keynes
@The Ridgeway Centre Featherstone Road Wolverton Mill South Milton Keynes MK12 5TH
Ekklesia is an overnight conference for church leaders to explore the power of the gathered community together. This is a space for the raw and the real, a space to unpack some of the thinking and the practical ideas that help us effectively bring about Kingdom change. The conference will be set up with round tables so that everything that is shared can be dissected and contextualised with other church leaders. There will be space to make God connections with other pastors and ministers and hear from a range of local church scenarios.
