Here are recordings of the talks from previous years conferences.
2022 Conference: Not a Sparrow Falls
The theme for 2022's conference was Not a Sparrow Falls: Living in light of God's Providential Care. If there ever was a time when we need a robust doctrine of God’s providence, it is now. Dr Matt Bingham brought us a Biblical and practical approach to the subject that will equip us with confidence in God for uncertain times.
2019 Conference: Apologetics for the Rest of Us
The theme for 2019's conference was Apologetics for the Rest of Us. Apologetics is nothing more than giving reasons for hope to people who are hope-less. In our three sessions we will learn how to proclaim the gospel faithfully and relevantly not only to those who think Christianity is objectionable, but those, who in increasing number, don’t think about Christianity at all.
2018 Conference: Things we Dare not Forget
The theme for 2018's conference was Things we Dare not Forget. The church has always had to reckon with the danger of missing its own blind spots. It’s easier to see the mistakes of the past than to recognise our own. But there are still things that we simply cannot afford to lose sight of – things we dare not forget. With the help of experienced and respected pastor John Benton, this year’s conference aims to help us be the kind of people who will always remember what’s most important.
2017 Conference: Building for the Future
The theme for 2017's conference was Building for the Future. Living things grow - plants and trees, babies and children, and disciples of the Lord Jesus! Rather than a medical style note which says ‘Failure to Thrive’, we want to see maturity and fruitfulness in the lives of disciples. How can we better nurture that in our own lives, and in our churches? The conference set out to point us in the right direction and equip us for a future in which we see the human and Christian equivalent of 'from little acorns...’
2016: Supporting Work and Witness in a Secular World
The theme for 2016's conference was Supporting Work and Witness in a Secular World. We live in a rapidly changing world in which Christianity is more and more marginalised. If we are to communicate the gospel in Britain today as it is, we need to understand both the culture and the gospel better.
David Robertson looks at understanding the secular world of post-Christian Britain and especially how we engage with our workmates, young people, the media and more general outreach.
