Join us for an evening with James KA Smith, influential author and thought leader, to explore how our immersion in the practices of the body of Christ is a way to curate a biblical imagination for faithful creation.

How then shall we live joyfully for Christ in the UK today, amongst the people we talk with, work with, live with, relax with, and care for day-by-day?
