Join us for the first Catalyst UK: Leadership conference. Open to all marketplace leaders as well as those in church teams, our desire is to create an opportunity to gather together for two days of leadership training to help us embrace a fresh vision for God’s Kingdom.
Our aim is high, to equip Christian leaders to advance the Kingdom of God in their place of work and through their local church. Through a mixture of teaching, workshops, small group/team time, worship and prayer, we want to encourage men and women in their leadership roles.
On Friday evening, a light two course meal will be followed by entertainment from stand up comedian Paul Kerensa. Paul is also a writer for BBC1’s Miranda and Not Going Out. He has played at Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal Comedy Festival as well as Spring Harvest, Greenbelt and New Wine. A cash bar will be available during the evening, creating a space to enjoy and relax with friends.
