Wake up your church: A one-day workshop at St Thomas' Church, Lancaster; Saturday June 13th

About the Event
The Wake up your church! workshop enables Christians to make powerful connections between faith, everyday life and challenges of justice and environmental sustainability. The event offers: an invitation to hear God's call afresh; a new look at our local and global situation; personal challenge, transformation and growth; renewed energy & growth in a church congregation.
The workshop draws on a rich mix of practical and theo-logical material presented in a lively and varied way. There is engagement with the bible, reflection and group activities. There are short film segments on environment and social justice issues with video input from leading Christian speakers including Tom Wright, Elaine Storkey and John Bell.

Facilitators: Mike Arundale and Rev'd Ali Oxborrow.
Mike worships at St James & Emmanuel church, Didsbury. He is a Lecturer in Strategy at Manchester Business School and Chair of the Boaz Trust, a Christian charity serving destitute asylum-seekers.
Ali is an ordained Anglian minister who previously worked as a solicitor in matrimonial law. She holds a Masters in Theology and is a trained counsellor. She served her curacy in Didsbury and has recently trained as a Restorative Justice Volunteer Facilitator with Greater Manchester Police.
