Note: We’ve introduced a change to our usual format for the Saturday seminars just for this year. This is intended to be a “one-off” as we seek to further utilise this year’s conference to give focus to the monumental, world changing event that was The Protestant Reformation.
Both of the normal seminar slots on Saturday will address “The Road to the Reformation”, exploring the circumstances that led to it, and why was it necessary. This will help us to think about the issues facing the church in our day and the continual need for reformation.
