The next Anabaptist Network of Communities day will be held on 7 March 2015 in Bristol. Here's a taster of what is planned:
The organisers in Bristol (the local Anabaptist group and members of Urban Expression teams) are working with the theme of the Feast of Fools, a subversive medieval festival that challenged social norms.
Are you passionate about equipping church leaders for ministry? Could you lead a small organisation which trains Christians in handling conflict? Then this could be the job for you.
This role gives the opportunity to lead an organisation which seeks to deliver excellence in its training and other services. Working with a small staff team mostly based in North London, and a wider group of associate trainers around the country, as an experienced trainer you will want to take Bridge Builders into the next chapter of its development.
The Opportunities and Challenges of Post-Christendom
Six webinars featuring the authors of already published or forthcoming books in the popular ‘After Christendom’ series are presented under the auspices of the new Centre for Anabaptist Studies, based at Bristol Baptist College. These are co-sponsored by the Anabaptist Network and the Mennonite Trust and hosted by the Church of the Brethren.
