In-Person - Ekklesia 2023 - London
@Westminster Chapel Buckingham Gate London
Ekklesia is an overnight conference for church leaders to explore together the raw and the real of church life. It’s a space to unpack some of the thinking and the practical ideas that help us effectively bring about Kingdom change.
Since we started in 2019, we’ve had vicars and pastors, deacons and elders, youth workers and community workers, lay preachers and mission enablers join us. Some leaders come alone and some come as a team from their local church. This is a great opportunity to learn together!
The whole conference is based around roundtables with an opportunity to discuss and contextualise what is shared from the front.
