Association of Interchurch Families
47th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Living Bread and True Vine
August Bank Holiday Sat 23rd to Mon 25th August 2013 (lunch to lunch inclusive)
at The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, nr Alfreton, Derbyshire

This year’s annual conference of the Association of Interchurch Families is intending to focus on our different approaches to the celebration of the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper.  During this weekend we hope to explore our beliefs with the aim of deepening our own understanding as well as learning from our partners.  Experience shows us that there is a wide variation of understanding of the Lord’s Supper both within and between denominations and we hope that it will be both helpful to ecumenical understanding if we are able to explore this in the context of the love we share in our marriages.

We shall have input from speakers of different church traditions, the opportunity to reflect on our title “Living Bread and True Vine” through bible study and group discussion, and workshops.

We will be joined by:

  • Dom Henry Wansbrough the leading Catholic theologian and Benedictine academic
  • Revd Stephen Keyworth, Faith and Society Team Leader for the Baptist Union,
  • Fr Dominic Robinson SJ from Heythrop College and Farm Street, London
  • Revd Bill Snelson who is Development Officer UK at the Anglican Centre in Rome.

The weekend will give us opportunities to listen to the word of God, for discussion fellowship and fun, for exchanging stories and recharging our spiritual batteries, all underpinned by prayer and scripture.  

Do join us!
