Evangelical Alliance seminar stream

Steve Clifford speaking at CRE 2017

Hosting seminars on their own extended stand for the first time, the Evangelical Alliance will cover some key subjects in 12 seminars – across all three days of CRE 2018

The largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians, the Evangelical Alliance brings Christians together and helps them listen to and be heard by, the government, media and society.

The EA will be at CRE 2018 to offer visitors guidance on a dozen issues like ‘Releasing your congregation for public leadership’ (Abi Jarvis), ‘Five top tips for conflict resolution’ (Jo Frost) and ‘Speak up: the law and our gospel freedoms’ (Richard Godden and Flavio Guaratto).

Joining them will be Steve Clifford, EA’s general director, who will speak on ‘Ethnic integration’ with Yemi Adedeji, EA’s director of the One People Commission.

In the current edition of EA’s IDEA magazine, Steve writes: ‘Let’s thank God he didn’t leave the Great Commission to my bit of the church, my network, my denomination, my group of friends. He called us to share his mission in all of our diversity of backgrounds and traditions.’

You will find the EA seminar stream behind the EA stand S155. Space is limited so be there early to ensure your seat.
