Back in January a number of us went to a conference run by the Midlands Gospel Partnership. Growing Churches looked at the issue of church-planting, which we found particularly relevant at the beginning of a new church.
Phillip Jensen, Dean of Sydney Cathedral, was the main speaker and spoke from his experience as a church leader and planter.
Graham Beynon, pastor of Avenue Community Church in Leicester (a church plant just 18 months old) and author of God’s New Community spoke from Ephesians about what it means to be a growing church.
The Yorkshire Gospel Partnership hosted a similar conference, and the talks (very similar to the ones we heard) are now available online. Click on this link and listen to the talks from the ‘Growing Churches’ conference.
