I've been asked to write a paper, and present at this event.  I'll be doing this on the Thursday 25th November.  My task is to overview Missional Church, and from my PhD research suggest a different way for us to understand how missional groups have taken shape and what is happening with them.

Over half the world's population now live in cities - yet patterns of ministry and mission are often dominated by rural or monastic models. This conference will explore how Christians can minister faithfully and effectively in this changing environment. It brings together leading theologians and prophetic, imaginative examples of urban discipleship, placing transformative practice at the heart of the event.
