In-Person - Fresh Expressions: Leadership in the Liminal - Swanwick
@The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Alfreton, Derbyshire
Leadership in the Liminal*
*Liminality (from the Latin word līmen, meaning “a threshold”) is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation in the space occupied between one thing and another.
In a rapidly changing world, and in a church trying desperately to discover what the ‘new normal’ might be, the liminal experience is very real. Do our inherited models of leadership work in such a context? Is a new approach required?
fx is pleased to be hosting a hybrid gathering of congregation leaders, church planters and pioneers from across the missional landscape, and we’re delighted to be welcoming four high-quality contributors to guide us in our conversations.
In-Person - Gathered to grow healthy churches
@Friends House, 172 Euston Road, London
A one-day conference focusing on growing healthy churches, for anyone in Christian leadership in the UK.
‘Gathered’ provides an opportunity for Christian leaders from diverse evangelical churchmanship to grow in friendship and unity. Through sharing the gifts God has given across his church we hope to help and strengthen one another, for the advancement of the gospel.
Across the event we will be looking at healthy leadership and healthy churches. There’ll also be plenty of time to meet new people and pray together that God might be at work amongst us, in our churches and in our nation. Gathered is for anyone in Christian leadership, male and female, from any church background, from anywhere in the UK.

If you are involved in planting and pioneering in urban estates, or are interested in learning from those who are, join us for 24 hours. There will be space for prayer and worship, time to build and renew friendships and a line up of speakers who will be telling their stories and bringing us inspiration. All hosted by Emmanuel Theological College and the Estates Evangelism Task Group.
We will gather pioneering urban practitioners with key thinkers and leaders in the church for a time of equipping, theological reflection and inspiration as we pray, listen, share stories and consider what God is doing in the often forgotten places.

In-Person - Courage Conference for Women 2023 - London
@The Dominion Centre 9 The Broadway, High Road Wood Green, London
The Courage Sisterhood includes women from every nation, tribe and tongue. We meet throughout the year at various events including breakfasts, as well as having an annual conference in London each summer.
Our conference is a celebration of life, of purpose, of possibilities in God, and of hope. Our heart’s desire is to see every girl and woman blossom into the beautiful, magnificent, and fulfilled person God created them to be.
It is a time to be totally immersed in an atmosphere of worship, joy, hope, and faith. We come together with one heart, one voice, one purpose, and one vision –that is, to have, “all of God in all of life”.
