2024 Conference: Power under Pressure

Power Under Pressure – Ecologies of power in the Church

Our annual conference this year will be back at Sarum College from 1pm on the 4th November, finishing at 2pm on the 5th November, followed by our AGM.

We will explore different ways in which power is used in churches and related organizations.

The conference is open to all and will cover some of the different ecologies of power in the Church and how authority and power are used in church contexts.
