In August 2022, CMSI and SAMS Ireland will host 36 global church leaders from Africa, South America and Nepal for a one-week programme, following the Lambeth Conference. The Kingdom Voices week will provide an opportunity to engage with inspirational church leaders around the world. It is an opportunity for God’s people to worship together across cultures, to pray for one another’s ministries, and to be refreshed in God’s call to service in the places to which we have each been called. We hope the Kingdom Voices week will strengthen bonds across the global church empowering us all for mission and ministry in our own local communities.
In addition to spending time with link parishes and supporters, our global guests will contribute to three events that CMSI and SAMS Ireland are jointly hosting:
- On Wednesday 10th August, a day conference for Church Of Ireland leaders.
Kingdom Voices: Learning From The Global Church, the main aims of the event are:
- To provide an opportunity for engaging together as leaders within the worldwide Church.
- To hear from – and learn from – the practical experiences of our Global Partners.
- To explore God’s Word together as we consider our shared calling to mission and to seeing God’s Kingdom Come in our own communities.
The event will take place between 10am and 4pm in St Donard’s, Belfast. Booking essential https://cmsirelandforms.wufoo.com/forms/s1ibev9m1nncolf/
