On November 20, 2015, Baptists from around the state will come together for a two day summit on the subject of local mission.
Our guest speaker Paul Griffiths is the founder of the Ugly Duckling Company, an organisation committed to finding fresh new ways of sharing the Good News of Jesus.
A UK based registered charity, the Ugly Duckling Company exists to stimulate conversations about the "big" and "not so big" questions of life. As well as engaging in consultancy and training, the Ugly Duckling Company create resources to stimulate discussion. These resources include:
Table Talk - a conversational game looking at the big and small questions in life.
Puzzling Questions - a six week course looking at questions frequently asked by people who are interested in learning more about spirituality.
The Happiness Lab - an eight week course looking at what stimulates happiness.
The cost for attending the summit is $135 per person. This includes lunch both days, dinner on Friday night, and morning and afternoon teas.
For those who are unable to attend the whole event there is a day rate of $60, or Friday evening only for $30.
