A Relational Mission Conference 30 May - 2 June 2018



A Relational Mission Conference 30 May - 2 June 2018


We live in a broken and hurting world, a world characterised by a climate of fear. The Church is called to serve that broken world, but in such a climate God’s people can also become fearful and try to hide in the shadows.

David faced similar circumstances in his day, yet when everyone around him stepped back in fear, David stepped forward, confident of who God was and what he had been called to do.

Be strong, and let your heart take COURAGE, all you who wait for the Lord!
— Psalm 31v24 (ESV)

David had lived his life out of sight until this point, yet what he had learned of God prepared him for the moment when he was called to make an impact in his nation. 

David showed true COURAGE.

God has prophetically encouraged us as a family to raise our expectations and take giant steps forward. He has promised to 'enlarge our tents', an enlargement that will see us change nations and bring Kingdom impact to different continents and cultures across the world. He has asked us to plant Kingdom seeds in spiritually barren land. This will require COURAGE.

In May 2018, we are calling on our family to gather, to join hands across the generations and explore what it means to be courageous as a family and as individuals. To stand up and step out to face the challenge our broken world has laid before us.

COURAGE is expressed through faith in God’s promises and in his power to fulfil them, and through action to play our part. David embraced this and defeated the giants of his day, imagine what we can do in ours.

Let us take COURAGE together and step into new adventures.

Who is the Conference for?

For this event, we have felt stirred to bring the next generation alongside our existing leaders. To embrace and take steps towards this we have decided to invite our students & 20s (SENT) to join with us, so we can be family together and learn from one another.

While SENT will have their own programme running alongside the main conference programme, there will be plenty of opportunities to join together, particularly in the evening sessions, some seminars and socially across the period of the event.

So, if you are in (or aspiring to) a leadership role within your local church or workplace then this conference is for you!

Example of these roles could be... elders, those leading church plants, small group leaders, children's and youth work leaders, ministry leaders, community champions, workplace managers, directors and entrepreneurs.

If you are a student or are in your 20s then this event is for you!





All early bird tickets for the leadership stream have now been sold. Regular price tickets are now available.

Tickets are for those in or aspiring to a leadership role

The ticket will give you full access to the leadership programme.

Make sure you read the FAQs before purchase so you are aware of the associated terms & conditions. 

STUDENT or in your 20s?

There are no more early bird tickets for this event. Standard priced tickets are on sale now, priced £119.

Please book through the Sent website to be sure of getting on the correct stream.




Why Come to the Conference?

We believe this is a strategically significant conference for our family of churches that will set the trajectory for us for the years ahead.

It is an opportunity to...

  • Join together and step into the new adventures God has for us as a family of churches.
  • Catch the vision and get a deeper understanding of our family and what is important for us.
  • Gather and catch up with friends from across our family.
  • Learn together, receiving inspiring and provoking teaching.
  • Invest in current and future generations of leadership in our family to make local and apostolic impact.

Please prioritise getting to this event, it is one not to miss out on!






We have a host of main and seminar speakers lined up for the event. Some will be speaking in the leadership stream, some in the student & 20s stream, and some in both. Look out for further speakers we will announce over the coming months.

It’s simple! The SENT delegates will have their own programme, as will Leadership Conference delegates. There will be some separate sessions during the day but each evening we will be joining together.

Please note: You will not be able to switch between the two programmes. If you’re a student or in your 20s, you’ll follow the SENT programme and if you’re a leadership delegate, you’ll follow that one. This will be managed at the event.

There will be plenty of social time to hang out with each other within the programme as well.



There will be a range of seminar options for you to choose from. This information will be sent out to you beforehand to enable you to book in BEFORE the Conference.

New Venue

We are so excited to be holding our Courage Conference at Friend’s House. It’s a great venue, in a great location. Because it’s a new venue, some things may be different to how we have run our previous conferences at King’s Church, Norwich. Different is ok. In fact, sometimes different is good!


The great news is that we’re in Central London so there’s food and drink available literally everywhere you turn! You are responsible for arranging your own meals throughout the Conference.


There will be a number of Relational Mission recommended books available at the Conference. Friend’s House have their own bookshop, which you are welcome to visit. However, Relational Mission would not necessarily endorse all of the books available from it.


There is a lovely café in Friend’s House, where you can purchase refreshments. We will not be providing refreshments free of charge
