Strategically rebuilding the Church of the Nativity involved studying, learning from and adopting successful practices in other Christian communities. Dr Ruth Powell will explore trends in evangelisation and what is working well in Christian communities across Australia. Participants are invited to take big picture ideas, learn from others and apply them in their own parishes.
