Hopes lifted then dashed

If I haven’t said it before on this blog, I’m a bit of a fan of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network.  I’m also a bit fan of what Steve Timmis and Tim Chester are up to in Sheffield, and loved their book Total Church.  In fact, I’ve been meaning to blog my way through it, but that never quite happened…

Anyway, I discovered minutes ago that Mark Driscoll and Steve Timmis were doing a day conference (12th July) in this country!  Fantastic, I thought.  I had really wanted to go to New York in April for the joint conference between Acts 29 and Tim Keller’s Church Planting Centre, but finances prevented me.

Then I checked my diary.  I’m already booked, for a training day on “Priesthood and Presidency” in preparation for my ordination to the “priesthood” in October.  Gutted!!  I may repent of this statement after the day itself, but is this going to end up as a day on “how to limit church growth by limiting those who can preside at the Lord’s Supper to those who are episcopally ordained” vs. “how to grow your church with the gospel of grace”??

Anyway, anyone in or around London – you really really must go.  Here are the details. And a pdf is available here.  Don’t forget Mark Driscoll live at St James Clerkenwell on the night before.
