ACC National Community Conference – 4th + 5th September 2018

Have you ever wondered what your community thinks of your church? What if you could move from a Sunday service full of Christians to a movement of people that engages and impacts its community 7 days a week?

ACC Community conference will practically equip you to see your community differently.

In ACC Community Engagement, we’ve had a revolution in recent years. Essentially it’s revolved around a shift in our community engagement from simply finding a need and meeting it to discovering the strengths and assets of our community and working with them. It’s called ABCD, which stands for Asset Based Community Development. This ABCD approach helps us to focus on what we actually have in our hands already, not on what we don’t have. It’s the “glass half full” approach to community transformation.

What you will take away from this interactive two day conference;
– Latest shifts in thinking on how to run and be the church
– Practical tips and help on engaging the community around you and how to get started
– A mindset that does not just focus on the needs of your community, but also its strengths and how the church can enhance them
– Inspirational stories from some of the world’s best community leaders.

Nationally ACC churches do an incredible job engaging their communities. This conference will be a great opportunity to hear and be encouraged through networking and sharing stories of churches engaging and building strong relationships in their local communities.
