National Estate Churches Network 2018 Conference
‘Tooled Up: the Craft of Estates Ministry’

At the NECN Conference this year, we will be launching the Estates Church Toolkit, an online range of resources that we know work to help support ministry on social housing estates. We will also be sharing in stories from Estate Churches around the country.
The Conference days will begin with a welcome over tea and coffee as you arrive, followed by a keynote address by Revd Andy Delmege, the new Chair of NECN (Andy has been a parish priest in estate parishes for many years, is a member of the Estates Evangelism Task Group, and Urban Estates Missioner in Birmingham).
There will be presentations from Estate Churches, telling rich stories of their lives and their ministres and looking at what has helped them to flourish (as well as what has been difficult).
There will also be available, throughout the day, a Marketplace of organisations and groups who provide helpful resources for Estate Churches.
Midday Prayer will be followed by a sandwich lunch which is included in the cost of the Conference. The afternoon session will see a panel of estate practitioners, thinkers and influencers present and take questions from the floor.
The cost of the day will be £25 including a simple sandwich lunch - if that charge prevents anyone from attending then please contact NECN using the details below to discuss ways in we might support your attendance.
