This year’s Building Blocks Children’s and Family Ministry Conference will take place online on November 7.
The theme is THRIVE: How to self-care and care for children and families in a socially distanced ministry.
The conference runs from 10am-1pm, and kicks off with a Muddy Church walk – details of how to get involved are included in a package sent to everyone who registers – and the online webinars get underway at 10.30am.
Lucie Hutson, founder of Muddy Church, will speak on wandering and wondering with God. Simple, muddy and theologically profound, Lucie opens up possibilities for connection – with God, with others, with ourselves and with Creation – all in our own neighbourhoods.
Melanie Lacy, Director of Theology for Children’s and Youth Ministry Training at Oak Hill College will equip participants to be confident, well-resourced leaders with thriving ministries despite the constant changes and restrictions.
Participants are also invited to take part in a Bible Study with Julie McKinley on Thursday November 5 at 8pm.
On top of this, there will be competitions, giveaways, time to connect; Q&A sessions with the experts, tips for family church, and great ideas of thinking outside the box.
