ABOUT THE 2017 CONFERENCE / The Life of Blessedness

Jen Wilkin speaks on The Life of Blessedness

And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them Matthew 5 1:2

What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew’s gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus’ longest recorded message – a sermon given to
His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like. It was a message intended to turn upside down every expectation His closest followers might have. Both practical and profound, the sermon asks of us the same questions it posed to its original hearers.Why not come along to IWC this year and hear more about where character takes root and where character bears fruit.
We are running the main conference on Saturday (three talks) but with the option of a shorter Friday evening event (two talks) as an alternative. So please come along join us on either Friday 6th or Saturday 7th October to hear Jen!
