There are certain unique challenges and opportunities that face those building churches in large urban contexts. People live and think differently in cities and need churches that will do the same.
In November 2012 we ran our first Global Cities Conference, drawing together leaders from cities across the world to talk, share ideas and learn together. David Stroud hosted the event, and invited Jon Tyson leader of Trinity Grace Church, New York and author of Rumors of God to join us as a guest speaker. The result was a highly stimulating three days, covering an enormous amount of material. Check out Andy Tilsley’s report for a small glimpse of what we discussed and learnt.
We’ve decided to make a few of the talks available. Audio files can be downloaded here, along with the slides from the talks and videos are embedded below, or available to watch on Vimeo. We hope they encourage, challenge and provoke you.
