JAEC 2020: Anglican Essentials

Posted by Ros Clarke, 12 Mar 2020

Booking is now open for the 2020 Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference

How can we be faithfully Anglican as we contend for the gospel in the church today?

We’ll need to understand what the church is, how it is governed and structured, how we worship together, and how we pray. At this year’s conference we will be doing that by exploring the essentials of Anglican ecclesiology, Anglican liturgy, and Anglican spirituality.  Each main session will have a follow up, either in a guided discussion time or in the optional seminars, helping us to ground the principles in good practice and to apply them to contemporary debates. Other seminars will help us see our place within the global church, and focus on specific stages of ministry and life.

We’re delighted to have Mark Pickles (Director of the Northwest Partnership), James Hughes (Vicar of St Alkmund’s Duffield) and Mark Smith (Dean of Clare College, Cambridge) leading our three main sessions. Bishop Graham Tomlin will be giving the conference Bible Reading. And seminars will be led by Helen Morrow, Mark and Lizzie Wallace, Peter Walker (EFAC), Phil Moon, Mark Smith and George Crowder. There will also be input from Lee Gatiss, Ros Clarke and Wallace and Lindsay Benn.

About JAEC
This conference 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, though we are unable to provide childcare during the sessions. Please contact the office for details about fees for families and couples.

The brochure and booking form can be downloaded here.

Ros Clarke is Associate Director of Church Society
