Mission to the Spiritual and not Religious
17 July:10.00am - 4.30pm£20
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.
