The event will take place online, with the morning programme of worship, prophetic contributions and keynote messages streamed live from The Message Trust in Manchester. Our keynote speakers are Martin Charlesworth and Rachel Gardner, and Sam Ward from the Message Trust will co-host the day alongside Martin.
In the afternoon, around 15 pre-recorded seminars will be released, and delegates will have exclusive access to them until the end of the month - no longer do you have to choose just two, but you can watch as many as you like.
The event will encourage and equip those working on the front line of social action and those churches with a heart to serve the most disadvantaged in our communities. It will be a call to us to rise up and act for the good of those around us trapped in poverty in the wake of the coronavirus.
