Tom Sine in the UK

Tom Sine, well known futurist and missiological dreamer, will be in the UK soon.

If you are a leader, or just someone concerned about church, community, social justice, mission, worship, a radical Christian, an outside-of-the-box kind of person, an inside-of-the-box-but-curious type of person, or a tree (actually - the tree one was a joke) then Tom Sine might well be someone that would interest you.

you can find the list of the events he is at that are open to the public through this link

Here is the blurb from the book cover

God is conspiring, through a new generation, to re-imagine and create new expressions of discipleship, community and mission to make a difference in our rapidly changing world. Tom Sine invites readers to learn from what God is doing in four innovative streams in the contemporary church:
· emerging church
· mosaic, multi-cultural church
· missional church
· contemporary monastic movements
He then leads a guided tour of major new challenges facing the world and the church in C21. The encouraging message of the book is that our own faith, though it be as small as a mustard seed, can make a real difference in the world. God is inviting us to join his conspiracy – to imagine fresh ways of celebrating the coming kingdom.
