Bath: New Wine: Digital Dialogue
August 3, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
“The mission of New Wine as a movement is to see local churches playing their part in changing nations. The church was established on the promise of change: of hearts, families, communities, cities – that the entire history of humanity and the earth itself would be changed by those swept up in this movement of God.
The reality of change is rooted in the reality of God’s promise that he will work in and through our lives. And this is a cause for celebration!
Our prayer for the 2015 National Gatherings is that God will meet us in our corporate worship, through teaching from his Word and in ministry; that together we’ll celebrate all the good things that God has been doing and continues to do in our midst; that there will continue to be people healed, marriages strengthened, family relationships restored, friendships developed and people coming to know Jesus for the very first time; and that we will be sent out in power by what will be a catalytic week in all our lives.
Come and join us as we embrace together the change God has for us, and be the change agents that he wants us to be as we play our part as local churches changing this nation.”
I’ll be presenting on: ‘Social Media: digital dialogue?’, and is subtitled: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn: Who follows who? Are there boundaries to the public conversation, and some things better said in private? How can social media help and hinder dialogue?
