Book your place at our 2017 conference

We’re delighted to invite you to join us for our third conference, The Task: The Local Church and Global Mission.

This will take place at what we’re thrilled is now our conference home, Oak Hill College, on Saturday February 25th, 2017.


The Vision

Our goal this year is to delve deep together into the fundamentals of our mission:

  • steve-timmis-4-of-4-400x510What is the biblical vision for the church’s role in reaching the nations?
  • What does that mean for the 21st Century UK and world contexts?

Our main talks, from Steve Timmis of The Crowded House, Sheffield, and Acts 29 church planting network, will open up the Bible to seek God’s voice in shaping our vision of the task before us.



As ever, this day is designed to pool experience and wisdom from the UK church and agencies for you to access. 4 practical seminars will explore different dimensions of local church engagement in global mission:

  • The Workers Are Few: raising up cross-cultural workers from the local church – Andy Lines: Mission Director, Crosslinks BCMS
  • Two Way Mission: receiving missionaries in the UK – Peter Ozodo:CAPRO missionary to the UK
  • Youth Mission: giving youth and children a global vision – Rory Bell: TnT Ministries
  • Unexpected: what happens when it ‘goes wrong’ for your missionaries? – Sheila Steven, Visiting Lecturer at Union School of Theology and former trustee of AIM

Spread the Word!

Please feel free to share this article with other church leaders or Christians you know who would benefit from a day devoted to exploring the local church’s participation in God’s glorious mission to the nations.


Jesus’ assessment of his world remains true: the harvest is plentiful, the workers are few. Please join us for what promises to be a precious day to plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers from our churches into the harvest fields of his world.
