Our next Conference: September 16-17, 2019

ReNew 2019

Future Focus


This year's ReNew Conference will focus on ‘multiplying ministries’ in light of the certain return of the Lord Jesus and the eternal realities of heaven and hell.

We have deliberately set our sights on ‘ministries’ more generally and not simply on pioneering new ‘churches’. Whether it be one-to-one, new small groups in unreached neighbourhoods and villages, fresh outreach amongst new people groups....or revitalising and planting new churches....every one of us can be engaged in pioneering Gospel work - and we must! With this emphasis we aim to envision, equip and encourage our whole constituency towards further obedience of the Great Commission, to the glory of God. Our commitment is to the evangelisation of the nation - and we aim to stick to it!

I am delighted that Archbishop Benjamin Kwashi will be joining us. Ben is Archbishop of the Jos Province in the Church of Nigeria, and General Secretary of GAFCON. He will be giving us a global Anglican perspective at ReNew.

We will also be joined by Canon Theologian Dr Kendall Harmon, from the Diocese of South Carolina. Kendall will address us on the subject of hell and God's judgement. His seminar on this subject was one of the very helpful contributions at GAFCON 2018.

When we met last year we committed to bringing various options regarding our future relationship with the Church of England for consideration at the 2019 conference. We shall do this in September. Common to each of the options presented will be the underlying principle of visible differentiation or unavoidable avoidance. We shall put a number of options before the conference with the aim of helping churches, in their different situations, make godly choices over the coming months.

I very much look forward to seeing you in September!

William Taylor,
Chairman of ReNew
