During Lent 2018, KCML is offering (free) webinars. Weekly, two of the contributors to Snapshots in Mission will be interviewed via online video conferencing. What sparked their writing? What piece of music speaks to their article? What are the implications, for church, ministry and mission? There will be time for Q and A, using video conferencing technology. The webinars happen weekly 4:30-5:15 pm on Thursdays starting 22 February, with the last one is on 15 March (topics and speakers for each date are below). Attend one. Or attend them all.

On 15-21 April 2018, lay and ordained rural church leaders gather together in Lincoln, Christchurch to be inspired, encouraged and equipped to face the challenges and opportunities of rural mission and ministry.

In addition to the main conference there is a young adult (16-25) stream.

This event aims to inspire, encourage and equip rural church leaders from across the globe as they explore the challenges and opportunities facing rural mission and ministry. With a learning community approach at its core, lay and ordained groups from countries and regions will consider together the ‘What is?’, ‘What could be?’ and ‘What will be?’ for their rural church context, inspired by stories and worship from different countries and traditions, and fed by key notes on reconciling communities and collaborative ministry. Delegates will leave with action steps for their area, a set of resources for mission and poverty reduction, new friends and a network offering ongoing support.
