Join us for the Message Conference 2017: two days of passionate worship, inspirational teaching and a call to world-changing mission. We live in a world in desperate need of our saviour, and he’s sending each one of us to boldly share the good news. Everyone’s invited. We’ve all got our part to play.
The conference will include a range of practical seminars covering topics including creative mission, sharing the gospel in word and action, worship and mission, reaching women and reaching men with the gospel, recognising and raising great leaders and more.
As part of the Message Conference, on the Friday evening we’re holding Higher Manchester 2017 – the culmination of six weeks of schools mission. You’ll be part of seeing thousands of young people responding to the gospel for the first time. And on the Saturday is our Message 25 Celebration with high-energy performances, life-changing stories and special guests from our last 25 years of mission.
