Annual Conference – Booking is OPEN!
We are looking forward to the forthcoming SRN Conference, to be held at Luther King House in Manchester, 24-26 October 2017.
The excellent team in Manchester have been working hard on the programme and have put together an interesting conference for us, based around ‘identity’ which was raised as an important issue last year – and with a real significance in the context of the diverse communities in the city itself.
We will be looking at this from a range of perspectives over the time together, with four main sessions being led by Rachel Mann, in conversation with dialogue partners who include a priest working on a large urban estate and the textual artist Stephen Raw. There will be an outing on Wednesday afternoon to the parish of Ordsell and Salford Quays, with options to visit the Lowry Gallery, Imperial War Museum North or walk round Media City, before gathering together at St Clements Parish Church to hear about their ministry in this parish with extremes of wealth and poverty.
As usual, the conference will include opportunities to meet colleagues, share ideas and experiences, worship and eat together (one meal in the famous Curry Mile) and take part in the AGM. Alison Peacock is also arranging for a bookstall, and the booksellers would be happy to have suggestions for titles to include, or can take definite orders in advance for anything you would like to buy and collect at the conference. More details about this later!
Further information about the conference can be found in the flyer http://srnet.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/SRN_Conference_Flyer.pdf
There are options to attend for part of the conference or day visits as well – do get in touch with me if you would like prices for this or to make a booking for partial attendance.
I have included a link to the booking form for the conference. Do feel free to send this on and invite appropriate people from your diocese or other networks to join us. The membership renewal form will be going out separately today and tomorrow, in case it is easier for you to arrange payment for both together.
And do get back to me with any other queries at any time!
Regards, Ann Wright
