Multiply 2023

Birmingham

Programme

As our paths converge at Multiply 2023, we want to start our day together in prayer, giving thanks and bearing witness to all God is doing in our churches and ministries, asking for his Spirit to move in even greater measure.

Would you join us before the activity of the conference begins, to consecrate both our hearts and the day for God, that he would do amazing things within and through those attending.

We will be gathering from 8:45am. Bring your whole self, bring your team, and let’s pray for the increase that comes from God alone

Doors open at 9:30am. Our team will be on hand to welcome you, sign you in and give you your personal lanyard. Once you’ve collected your lanyard, come to the CCX stand where we’ll help you connect with others who share similar interests, and book you a 1:1 slot on a Coaching Counter.

Take your seat as your hosts guide you through a programme of stories, teaching and conversations from across the global church.

Centre/Edge

Bishop Justin will reflect on his experience of working at the centre of the diocesan structure with a call to lead mission on the edges – looking at the challenges of integrating these two vital approaches.
