Keynote Speaker: Gordon Jump, Programme Manager for Renewal and Reform.
Gordon Jump heads up Renewal and Reform who have an ambitious programme of work, which seeks to provide a narrative of hope to the Church of England in the 21st century. It is rooted in a sense of Biblical hope and an understanding of Christ’s call to us to pray that the Lord of the harvest will send out workers into the harvest field. Their goals are to contribute as the national Church to the common good, to facilitate the growth of the Church in numbers and depth of discipleship and to re-imagine the Church’s ministry.
