Over 70 lay leaders from across the church spectrum gathered on Saturday 24th September at Kings House, the home of KXC in Kings Cross, for the ‘Stepney Church conference’.

Mirjam Ngoy-Verhage the newly appointed discipleship lead for the diocese of London w

as the keynote speaker speaking on being ‘Confident disciples in a turbulent world’. After coffee and cookies people chose between 4 seminars ‘Church planting in my backyard’ ‘Money and Mission do work’ ‘Growing the Church younger’ and ‘Going deeper in confident discipleship’

As folks left at lunchtime there were a chorus of requests for further such conferences, can we turn the culture of the Church in East London? During the Question-time session chaired by Andy Rider Dean of Mission and conference organiser, Bishop Joanne, Bishop of Stepney said she wanted to see a growing culture of hospitality and generosity across our 65 churches in East London. This conference typified and inspired just that.
