Mission to the Spiritual and not Religious

17 July:10.00am - 4.30pm


Increasingly the majority of the population in the UK describe themselves as spiritual, but not religious.  Now what were once fringe activities such as doing yoga, practising meditation and finding a spiritual connection in nature are very much the mainstream.  So what impact does this openness to spirituality have for those of us who want to start a conversation about Christianity?  What can we learn from people who have been working with pagans and those interested in alternative spiritualities for years?

This is a specialist, one-off day for pioneers and others in Fresh Expressions, or more traditional models of church, to hear from seasoned practitioners working with spiritual seekers in a range of different contexts, so that we might all go away better equipped to engage with those who consider themselves spiritual and not religious.

Contributors will include: Phil Wyman from Salem, Massachusettes; Diana Greenfield, Ordained Pioneer Minister in Glastonbury; Church Army’s Steve Hollinghurst, writer of Mission-shaped Evangelism; and author of The Shaken Path: A Christian Priest’s Exploration of Modern Pagan Belief and Practice, Paul Cudby.
