This is the Croydon Lay Conference – Inside Out. This year it is going to be an online event via Zoom so it can be joined from home. This free event is taking place on Saturday 6 November from 10.00 to 3.30.
The keynote speaker is Andrew Graystone, and his subject will be Upside Down: A different way of looking at your church’s mission. Andrew Graystone is a well-known writer and broad -caster. His voice will be familiar to Radio 2 and Radio 4 listeners from Prayer for the Day and the Daily Service. His latest book is Faith, Hope and Mischief, published by Canterbury Press. Bishop Jonathan will close the conference by discussing My vision for an inside out church.
There will be 16 workshops to choose from, all concerned with how lay people can take the love and joy they find inside the church out beyond its walls:
