Friday 25th 8:00pm
We are wanting to focus on the generations and how we can better be an inter-generational church whilst being culturally relevant and reaching adults aged 35 and under, often referred to as ‘the missing generation’ in the church. This is such an important issue that we have invited Dr Ruth Perrin to come and speak to the whole church, whatever our age, on Friday 25 October. Doors open at 7:30pm for refreshments, session starts at 8pm.
Please make every effort to come, Ruth is a very engaging speaker with a lot of insight.
Ruth is currently the Leech Research Fellow undertaking post-doctoral research into the faith of Millennials in the Northeast of England. She has previously published on young adult faith in: The Bible Reading of Young Evangelicals (Wipf & Stock 2016); ‘Searching for Sisters’ in The Faith Life of Women and Girls, Slee et al eds. (Ashgate 2013); and Inspiring Women: Discovering Biblical Role Models (Grove B42).
In addition to her research interests she is also a tutor on the Cranmer Free Church Track, associate staff at King’s Church Durham and a trainer in Christian leadership. She has 20 years ministry experience primarily (though not exclusively) with students and young adults and writes for two websites www.cloudofwitnesses.org.uk and www.discipleshipresearch.com.View Event
