Germinate Conference

This year’s Germinate Conference is on the 13th October. The title is ‘More Than Belonging’. Through key note speakers, case studies and workshops, the 2018 Germinate Conference will explore what it means for rural Christians to do more than belong to their churches and communities. Both inspiring and practical, the day will bring together individuals, churches, agencies and networks involved in rural mission and ministry.
