How should the church of Jesus Christ respond to the rapidly increasing hostility it faces in the Western world? What should we do when public discourse, government, education and media seek to eradicate all Christian influence? Is there any validity in the separatism of the so-called ‘Benedict option’? What does it mean to be faithful to God’s calling to his church in a generation when the moral order is changing around us?
The conference brings together pastors, church leaders, theological students and others who seek to respond biblically and theologically to one of the pressing issues of our day.
