Since 2016 we have held annual national gatherings where we have brought all our graduates together to explore a key theme, learn from experts and connect with each other.
In 2021 our conference was on the theme of Generosity. We gathered regionally in three venues (London, Glasgow & Sheffield) with some sessions being held locally and some streamed across the country. This was a great opportunity for us to build relationships with those in our region and gather as community.
“There was a real sense in the room that this was a group of people who were going to change the world.”Nell, Just Love Durham Alumnus
2020 | From the Ashes
Our 2020 National Gathering focused on the theme of ‘From the Ashes’. Over 230 graduates and final year students gathered to explore the importance of lament in processing injustice as a generation who will let go of the status quo and live lives defined by the gospel, alight with hope and on fire for justice. We enjoyed sharing stories of hope within the network, and hearing from Jo Herbert-James, Rene August and Tim Lornie as our keynote speakers.
