Building the Church for today and tomorrow Conference

What is the place of the church in a changing culture? How do we best manage our finances? What does strategic planning look like for a church? If we can’t do everything, what should we focus on?   Conference will be on 31 st October.  $30 per person.   See notice board for more details.
