GROWING CHAPLAINCIES TO SERVE THE NATION – NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN LUTON ON THURSDAY 16TH APRIL 2015

GROWING CHAPLAINCIES TO SERVE THE NATION
JOIN US AT A NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THURSDAY 16TH APRIL 2015
Working in collaboration with other town chaplaincies we are launching
The Alliance of Town and City Chaplaincies (ATCC) at a national
conference in Luton on the 16th April 2015. This has been an exciting
journey since our first conference in April 2013 when it was
unanimously agreed that the Lord is doing something extraordinary in
the UK through Chaplaincy, and there was a perceived need to develop a
national network – which we have now called ATCC.
The dream is to form a strategic movement sharing knowledge, resources
and best practice in order that we can reach those who are searching
for meaning and purpose in an increasingly vulnerable post-modern
world. This is an opportunity to see how we can work together in unity
with the local church in our communities in order to see ‘His
Kingdom Come and His Will be Done’ in our towns, cities and
villages.
The conference is an opportunity to pray, worship and meet with
like-minded people who have a passion to see the UK transformed
through the many new expressions and models of town and city
Chaplaincies we see in the 21st century. It is an opportunity to
become a member of a movement whose roots are deep and go as far back
as the 4th century. There is so much to learn from each other as
culture and society change – but the message remains the same.
The conference will inspire us as we hear from Nigel Tween (former
Principal of Regents Theological College and Director of Training for
ELIM Pentecostal churches) as to how the Pentecostal movement in the
UK has grabbed hold of town chaplaincy. And it will inform us as we
cover the practical aspects of funding and recruitment and retention
of volunteers.
The conference will run from 9 30 am to 4 30 pm and will be held at:
Central Baptist Church
Park Street
Luton LU1 3ET
There is no charge to attend – but bring your own lunch.
There will be opportunity to become a member of ATCC on the day giving
you access to a ‘Guide to establishing a town or city chaplaincy’,
attendance at other events, networking opportunities and practical
support. There is a joining fee of £50, so bring your cheque books!
We look forward to meeting you on the 16th April 2015, as we begin a
new chapter in the life of Chaplaincy.
