CMS conversations day – Thriving: Searching for sustainability in life, faith and pioneering
5 April:10.00am - 4.00pm
Across our society we assume that growth is good, but is it always good, necessary and fruitful?
Might there be other ways of looking at growth?
The climate crisis is one of the clearest demonstrations of the way an assumption of growth has been hugely problematic.
What if instead of aiming purely for growth we looked for sustainability? What might it look like to frame mission as sustainability rather than growth?
This year, our Conversations Day will focus on this theme, reflecting on thriving in sustainable ways.
Picking up themes such as sustainable economy, sustainable planet, sustainable church and sustainable pioneering the day will host a series of talks, workshops and conversation exploring the big picture and the day-to-day details.
The event will be hybrid, with a limited number of tickets available for venues in Oxford and Cumbria.
NB Onsite numbers are limited due to Covid.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
