In-Person - A Place at the Table - London
@St Peter’s Vere Street, London
With loneliness and isolation reaching unprecedented levels in the UK, it’s never been more important for Christians to commit to practising hospitality. 
But for many of us, hospitality is a lost art – a practice we’ve forgotten, neglected, or distorted beyond all recognition. Amid material comforts and rife individualism, practicing hospitality can be daunting – we can worry that too much is expected of us, that we need to present a perfect home, or that something could go wrong when we let others into our space. 
But what if hospitality was actually simpler and yet more profound than we can imagine?
A Place At The Table, the new book from author, working professional, and mother-of-two Jo Swinney, in collaboration with her late mother, explores this crucial topic – drawing on biblical insights from the early church and a deep well of experience, and extending a warm invitation to embrace the loving kindness of others.

Online - Kx Leaders Day - Discipling God’s People for Fruitful Workplace Engagement
@
Everybody’s work is different. And everybody’s workplace is different – the sector, the health, the culture, the people, the attitude to faith. In the last ten years much progress has been made in workplace ministry but for many workers there are two big blocks – the lack of conviction that their work, their particular work matters to God, and a sense of powerlessness, guilt, shame and weariness when it comes to effective workplace witness.
How then can help see the wide range people in our congregations see why their particular work matters to God – from stacking shelves to writing code, from cleaning windows to calculating corporation tax? And how can we empower a wide range of people engage intentionally, fruitfully, in word and witness in such a wide variety of working environments?
