How can we understand and address young people’s faith formation in a secular age? Youth Workers, practitioners, strategic leaders and theological educators are invited to join us for a day exploring:

  • declining participation in church
  • rising interest in spirituality
  • complex patterns of faith formation 

Key contributors:
