We've created a series of free webinars to offer practical ideas for Church leaders at a local level in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We hope these sessions will provide access to individuals, information and resources that will help to make a difference.

Webinars will take place on Zoom, lasting an hour (unless otherwise stated). They will focus on a specific theme, featuring speakers from the National Evangelism & Discipleship team, and will include a Q&A.

Spaces are limited and registration is required in advance.

Full details, including sign-up links, are included below.

We look forward to hosting you.

What the Church is noticing in these strangest of times

In 2015 Pope Francis said: “We are not living an era of change but a change of era.”
 
We have been experiencing our culture and society changing for many years, yet the pandemic has accelerated the pace of change. So, what are we noticing in the world around us and what opportunities and challenges might these shifts mean for the Church of England?
 
Join Heather Cracknell and guests to hear about the work she has undertaken to hear from people working and worshipping in our church the length and breadth of the country, across varied and diverse forms of ministry.
