Learning and Growing Together
Saturday 2 February | St Albans Cathedral | 09:00 – 14:45
Growing the faith of children and young people is vitally important, as most people come to faith at an early age. Indeed, you may well have had your first positive experience of Christianity when you were very young. In order to take forward this work, we are holding a Diocesan Day Conference in the Cathedral, the theme will be Learning and Growing Together, and the focus will be growing younger disciples of Jesus Christ.
To help us think through these issues, we are delighted to have three high-calibre speakers. In addition, there will be a choice of workshops and opportunities for conversation. A sandwich lunch and hot drinks will be provided free of charge. Cold drinks will be available to purchase.
We look forward to welcoming you to this energising and informative day!
