JAEC 2019: The Future Starts Now
Posted by Ros Clarke, 19 Mar 2019
Brochures are now available and bookings are now open for the 2019 Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference, which will be held at Kings Park Conference Centre from 27th-29th August.
The Church of England is always in crisis and now is no exception, so at this year’s conference we will be considering historical and contemporary Anglicanism, as we seek to prepare ourselves to meet the challenges of the future. Now, perhaps more than ever, it is vital for evangelicals in the Church of England to work together to contend for the gospel of Christ.
At this year’s conference we will be exploring what it means to be Anglican and evangelical, with talks from Andrew Towner on “What is Anglicanism and why does it matter?” and “A Brief History of Evangelicals in the C of E” from me. Lee Gatiss will give us an exposition of Titus 1, “The Trustworthy Word”. On the middle day, we welcome John Dunnett of CPAS who will speak on “Preparing for 2020: same sex marriage and the CofE”. John will also be part of our panel discussion on “What is the future for Anglican evangelicals?” later that day, along with Fiona Gibson, Amanda Robbie, Lee Gatiss and Andrew Towner.
Seminar options on the Wednesday are: Married to the Minister (Amanda Robbie), The Imperfect Pastor (Neil Robbie), Getting Through A BAP (John Simmons), Moving to Incumbency (John Dunnett), Ministering in Multiple Churches (Fiona Gibson) and Making a Joyful Noise (Andrew Towner).
On our final morning, Fiona Gibson and Mark Wallace will lead a session together on “Uniting the evangelical tribes” before Bishop Mark Tanner gives us the conference Bible reading.
The Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC) aims to help us be more effective as Anglican Evangelicals, making the most of every opportunity to reach the lost for Jesus, build up the church through his word, and send workers into God’s harvest field. If you are in Anglican ministry, lay or ordained, and at any stage from exploring ministry through to a first incumbency, you are warmly invited to JAEC. Spouses and families are also very welcome to attend although we are unable to provide childcare at the conference.
