Regenerating Places of Faith Conference – More Conversation

A conference series exploring the intersection of property, purpose, and the Church. For those responsible for or interested in sustaining our Places of Faith.

The fourth conference in the “Regenerating Places of Faith” series will be held on 27th October 2018 building on the ideas shared at the successful 2017 conference “Starting the Conversation”. With “More Conversation” we continue to explore the opportunity of the present moment:

  • How can we connect community groups with local congregations to improve social cohesion and neighbourhood resilience?
  • As congregations re-imagine their life and mission, how should they evaluate their role as custodians of community assets?
  • How might congregations and community groups work together to restore and re-purpose church buildings as functional spaces for community use?
  • What wider community resources can be harnessed to maintain, restore and re-imagine our historic churches?

Regenerating Places of Faith seeks to bring together local congregations, denominational leaders, civil society, government agencies, and property professionals, to explore and answer these questions.

Speakers will explore the community perspective on local congregations and their churches, and present case studies from Australia and internationally on developing effective links between community groups and congregations.
