Rebuilding Lives Conference

Event Details

  • Date & Time:

Is there anything more amazing than seeing God transform broken lives? We here at The Message are passionate about supporting and empowering people from difficult backgrounds as they discover God’s love for them and his plan and purpose for their lives.

On Saturday 24 April, we are hosting the ‘Rebuilding Lives Conference’ where you are invited to celebrate with us how God has transformed the lives of people who have a life journey that has involved prison and addiction. We will see together that God raises key leaders from within these communities to be a part of his great commission to reach every person with his gospel of hope.

Join us as we learn and explore how the church, when it sees what God sees and invests into people often marginalised, will see a release of innovative, creative leadership for this generation.

So, whether you’re a church leader, you work with ex-offenders, or just want to learn more about integrating ex-offenders and ex-addicts into your church community, we would love you to come along to this even to learn more.

This is a free event with no need to sign up. If you’d like to get in touch with us about the event, email us at [email protected]
