Imagine is on 17 September at Northside Baptist Church in Crows nest Sydney. This year is the first of what we hope will become an annual event for the Seed community. It's for people who are already connected with our community, or those who want to find out more. If you love Jesus and you're passionate about seeing positive change in the world, we'd love for you to join us.
Imagine is not a conference. Yes, there will be some great input, but this event is all about you and developing your ideas. It's about helping you move your ideas forward as you seek to bring change that aligns with God's purposes for the world.
There are three main parts to the program:
The goal is to introduce you to some of our processes and tools for kingdom imagination. Bring your own ideas and dreams for the community, workplace or culture where God has placed you and we’ll run you through a process to develop and sharpen them - with input from others. If you don’t have ideas, come as you are and we’ll help you begin to imagine how you could be a catalyst for change where God has placed you.
For those who register, we’ll send you some details the week before that will help you prepare to get the most out of the session.
Great imagination and great change happen better when there is great food and great community. As the sun sets, we'll enjoy a beautiful meal together and continue to share our ideas from the day.
In the evening be part of the live audience for our first interviews for Seed TV. We're excited to have Tim Hawkes and Karen James as our first guests (profiles below). These long form interviews will delve deep into the stories of these inspiring people – followers of Jesus who have grappled with the application and integration of their faith beyond the walls of the church.
