St Mary Redcliffe Church to host Community Building Conference on Saturday 22nd June 2019

Posted on: 04 Jun 2019

The people of Bristol are cordially invited to Faith & Community Building, a conference hosted by St Mary Redcliffe on Saturday 22nd June.


Faith & Community Building at St Mary Redcliffe.

The conference, organised in partnership with the Bristol City Council Community Development Team, is a fantastic opportunity for people in and around the area to find out about the theology and theory behind the church's community engagement and develop skills to get involved.


The church's Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) approach is held in high regard by several city groups and authorities, and Faith & Community Building is a great chance to learn more about what the ABCD approach is all about, and why the church is embracing it.


The ABCD approach has inspired Bristol City Council to establish a working partnership with St Mary Redcliffe, and this month's event will see the two teams come together to promote and discuss it. The organisers and the people of Bristol will be joined by Revered Al Barrett, invited as the event's keynote speaker, who currently works in the Church of England at a national level to look into how churches engage with urban estates.


For more information on the event and to book your place at a cost of £5 per person (with lunch included in the ticket price), head here. For more information on St Mary Redcliffe or to find out what else they've got coming up in 2019, check out their Facebook page.
