Frontier Youth Trust (fyt.org.uk) and CURBS (curbsproject.org.uk) are partnering to host the BEYOND Conference.
Frontier Youth Trust and Curbs have partnered to host the Beyond Conference. We recognise that most children and young people no longer have a connection to a local church. The old patterns of ministry to children and young people within our walls has to change. As such we are hosting a learning day for those interested in connecting with children and Young people BEYOND the walls of the Church.
The day will create space for Youth and Children's work practitioners to share stories from their practice. A collection of speakers will deliver short Ted talk style presentations followed by roundtable discussion.
Gather with us on the 12th October to challenge and inspire each other as we dream BEYOND our own walls.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Amie Buhari - theatre, drama and inclusion
- Dave Joyce - challenging the church model
- Sara Barron - urban children' work
- Jenny Tambourine - play therapy
More speakers to be added.
