Business for Good Conference - Edinburgh
@Sheraton Hotel, Lothian Road, Edinburgh
Do you believe business can be a positive force for good? Join us for an inspiring, fun, and thought-provoking couple of days that will capture your heart, transform lives and increase your impact. I used to believe I needed to wait until I had the time or money to support charities through my business. Until I discovered the opposite was true: focusing on impact and supporting causes is a powerful way to GROW a business and do good at the same time. No matter what type or size of business you are. Imagine how different the world could be if all businesses were to focus on making a positive contribution to communities, society and the planet–as a way to drive profits rather than as an after thought... That's what we’ll be exploring at this event.

Mental Health Matters - Manchester
@!Audacious Church M3 7BB
At a time in our nation where mental ill-health is being talked about as an epidemic, we believe that the Church has a vital role in presenting a different narrative which is full of hope and the possibility of breakthrough. Mental Health Matters brings together biblical truth and psychology, personal stories and the power of the Holy Spirit. This year’s programme will include practical workshops on: Young People’s Emotional Health - equipping parents, educators and youth workers to further understand and help the young people they are connected with. Men’s Emotional Health; busting the stereotype - a workshop speaking into the area of men’s emotional health and well being (for men only) Managing Stress; preventing burnout - a workshop focused on developing and maintaining your health and well being. Getting to the root of the issue - helping you understand how to address the root of the problem and not just the symptoms.

Empowering the church to empower the poor - Great Yarmouth
@The Kings Centre, 30 Queen Anne's Road Great Yarmouth, NR31 0LE
This conference, led by the Pathways from Poverty team and administrated by Kingsgate, Great Yarmouth, is open to everyone who wants to be encouraged and equipped to be part of a church that welcomes the poor and sees lives transformed, as people are empowered to walk on pathways out of poverty.

In the UK and across continental Europe, the church is finding itself coming face to face with an ever growing tide of needs within its local community. From food and fuel poverty, to loneliness, isolation and relationship breakdown, from debt, to housing insecurity, long term unemployment and addictions. These issues are robbing people of hope for the future, damaging the mental health and wellbeing of all sections of our society, impacting young and old alike.

As we connect more and more with people living in and with these difficult circumstances, how do we keep on loving and not grow weary? How do we empower people to move forwards and not create dependencies? How do we enable people to become actively engaged in our local church communities? How do we respond with compassion yet still strive for justice?

Addressing these issues and more are the goals of this valuable and inspiring day. There will be worship, teaching, practical seminars, opportunities to meet new people, browse stands and hear about some great church-based community projects, all designed to help you to make a difference in your local community, bringing hope and transformation to the broken world around us.
