DIASPORA, EMPIRE AND THE GOSPEL – UNCOVEREING THE MINORITY CHURCH IN EUROPE

THE EEMA CONFERENCE 2019!

In recent decades many millions of people have come to Europe from all over the world and established minority churches.  Meanwhile ethnic Europeans have migrated within the continent and planted churches which often reflect their own culture more than the host culture.  We will be investigating this phenomenon and asking how these churches navigate between becoming assimilated by the host culture, remaining isolated outposts of their culture of origin or endeavour to develop a ‘kingdom’ culture that transcends both.

We will aim to provoke theological reflection on diaspora mission, listen to and learn from lived narratives, lead toward an action plan to further develop our understanding and provide tools/outputs to further develop diaspora ministry in the future.

Dates: 25-27 November

Location: Hotel Benczur , Budapest

RELATIONSHIPS IN A WORLD OF CONFLICT (European Member Care Consultation 2020)

Loving God, loving your neighbour, loving yourself, loving your enemy.

The world seems to be increasingly polarised, with relationships characterised by animosity and divisiveness even in the church and mission.

How do we embrace and foster authentically loving and sacrificial relationships in our teams and communities?

Our Bible studies in Romans 12 will inform our thinking on crucial relationships such as team, church, family, agency, spouse, nationals, persecutors, leaders and God as we see to share the gospel with others not only in what we do and say, but in who we are and how we live.

Dates: 16-19 March 2020

Location: Casa Diocesana De Spiritualidad, Malaga, Spain
