Proximity 2020: Come Follow Me - Manchester
@Lighthouse Church, Manchester, M50 1RE
Proximity is a two-day conference hosted by the Eden Network. It aims to equip, challenge and inspire those involved in or thinking about urban mission. This conference is for any Christian who seeks to love where they live. This year we will be exploring Jesus’ call to ‘come, follow me.’ We will explore what this call meant to those who walked and talked with Jesus and ask whether we are ready to follow him in order to reach the least, the last and the lost. We’re excited to announce that Shane Claiborne will be joining us for Proximity 2020.
