The Church of England has a bold goal, creating 100 new worshipping communities by 2020. Ric Thorpe oversees church planting for the denomination and has been involved with five Holy Trinity Brompton church plants.
Ric will be in Adelaide on 27 July, 2018 at Hope Valley Uniting Church for a full day of church planting conversation. He brings with him, extensive experience in church planting and revitalisation. The training day will replace the Uniting Leaders conference in 2018.
Uniting Leaders was successfully launched in the Gold Coast in 2016 and held again in Adelaide in 2017. Next year, the Uniting Leaders conference will be held once again in the Gold Coast from August 27-29, 2019. To find out more about this conference, follow the new Uniting Leaders Facebook page for updates and insights.
Holy Trinity Brompton has been planting churches sinces 1985. They have planted teams of 10 to 200 people into a wide variety of churches throughout London and overseas. The historically significant and beautiful Anglican churches – often facing closure – have been restored and are now homes to growing, worshipping communities that have a significant impact within their local areas.
Ric Thorpe has been involved in this growth and revitalisation and will bring his wisdom and insight to Adelaide. The day-long training event will be full of fantastic opportunities to engage with one of today’s best church planting strategists. The cost is $50, which includes morning tea and lunch.
