We are thrilled to welcome back to ChristChurch London our good friend Andy Crouch!
Andy is a leading thinker, speaker and author from the USA. Among other things, he is the executive editor of Christianity Today and a senior fellow of the International Justice Mission IJM Institute. He is also part of our Council of Reference and has been one of the major influences behind our vision to work for the social and cultural renewal of our city.
Culture Making: A Morning with Andy Crouch will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, EC4V 6DB from 10.00-12.20. Andy will address some of the unexpected pitfalls, successes and failures of culture makers that he has observed over the last few years. He will then lead a discussion around these themes.
This will be a great opportunity to learn and connect with others from ChristChurch London who share your passion for the renewal of culture, but who may be based at a different service to you. Tickets are free but limited, so register via our online booking system.
If you’re not familiar with Andy’s work, here are a few talks, videos and books you may enjoy before his visit:
In this book, Andy explores the different postures we hold towards culture and argues that if we want to change culture we cannot simply critique, copy or consume it; we must create culture.
In 2011 we ran a conference at which Andy was the keynote speaker. Over three talks he explored many of the ideas from Culture Making, and you can get the audio and video of his talks here.
For our Love London Sunday in March 2014, we explored the theme of creativity and we asked Andy to address ten key questions. His answers are each about a minute long and are full of gems!
Andy was the Executive Producer of Christianity Today’s This Is Our City, a multi-year project featuring documentary video, reporting, and essays about Christians seeking the flourishing of their cities.
And if that’s not enough, you may also want to check out his talk on Four Hidden Themes in the Life of a Culture Maker, his second book Playing God, which explores the theme of power, and if you’re an eager beaver, you can even pre-order his latest book Strong and Weak.
