During the pandemic, churches have found that they are reaching many more people through social media than before.  This is developing new liminal spaces between gospel and people, between church and community.

Distinctive Deacons work in liminal spaces, making connections, building bridges, relationally pioneering initiatives.  How can we develop the new opportunities God is giving us in this situation?  Ann Morisy will suggest ways forward.

There will be breakout rooms and times for questions with Ann

Distinctive deacons, ordinands, diaconal enquirers, vocations advisers and DDOs are all welcome to attend.

For details, please email to deacons@tutanota.com
