GET ready to take part in a terrific Windows of Opportunity.
A special day conference is being organised for October and is aimed at members of churches and faith organisations in Wokingham Borough wanting to explore ways to engage effectively within their local communities.
There will be presentations from senior representatives of Wokingham Borough Council and health bodies who will summarise local priorities, as well as speakers with a more national perspective. Themed workshops will also be held during the day.
Guests planned are:
- Adam Dyer, Ambassador for Cinnamon Network and leader of Yeovil Community Church which supports families through their Yeovil4Family project in partnership with South Somerset Council.
- Josie Wragg, Head of Community Sustainability, Wokingham Borough Council
- Daniel Webster, Parliamentary Officer at Evangelical Alliance who recently published the report Faith in the Community.
- Dr Stephen Madgwick, Chairman of NHS Wokingham Clinical Commissioning Group.
Organisers from Faith In The Community say that attendance at the event will be crucial for local churches, statutory bodies and local government departments who wish to understand how to harness the potential of working together to help those in need in the local communities.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided and attendance is free.
The event will be held at The Oakwood Centre, Headley Road, Woodley from 10.30am until 3.30pm on Tuesday, October 15.
