Next Generation

Our annual prayer and justice conference is coming up at the end of the month - read on to find out more and book on! 

What have you learned about God that could help others? What would our nation look like if the age-old truths about God’s Word, about praying and living justly were being safely handed down from one generation to the next? It might look very different from today’s increasingly secularised society.

The next generation needs to hear from God; to hear that His Word is true; to learn that prayer works; and to see that it is possible to live out lifestyles that speak of justice.

At the Next Generation conference, we'll be meeting, praying and worshipping with those younger and older than ourselves. We'll be meditating on God’s Word and hearing from guest speakers Pete Hughes (KCX, London) and Vaughan Roberts (St Ebbes, Oxford) who will help us to understand how it should impact our lives.

So we welcome you to join us on 24-25 February 2012 as the generations gather to discover and celebrate what God is doing in and around us.  

Join us to pass on what God has given you to those who are coming next. Join us to be part of the heartcry that God is raising for the revival of His ways in our nation.

“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 78:4)

PETE HUGHES and his wife Bee lead KXC, a recent church plant in Central London. Prior to that, Pete was the Associate Director of Soul Survivor UK, spending much of his time helping to oversee the ‘Soul in the City’ mission in London during summer 2004.

Pete and Bee went on to join the leadership team of St Mary’s Bryanston Square, running a leadership development year for young leaders and overseeing all of the small groups in the life of the church.

As well as leading KXC, they currently oversee New Wine’s work amongst the 18–30s, organising their Retreat to Advance weekends. They have been married for 8 years and have two boys, Benj and Josh.

VAUGHAN ROBERTS studied law at Cambridge University before a brief spell in South Africa where he was involved in student ministry. He subsequently trained for ordained Anglican ministry at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, and since 1991 has been on the staff of St Ebbe’s Church, Oxford, where he is now Rector. It is an evangelical church with a large student congregation.

As part of his ministry at St Ebbe’s, Vaughan runs a ‘Simeons’ Course that aims to equip potential preachers with the skills to proclaim God’s Word faithfully and effectively. He is also Director of The Proclamation Trust, encouraging and equipping preachers to expound the Bible, and Chairman of 9:38, an initiative that encourages people to consider the possibility of gospel ministry.

Vaughan has written a number of books, including ‘God’s Big Picture’, ‘Battles Christians Face’ and most recently ‘True Spirituality’. In his spare time, he enjoys playing cricket, tennis and golf.
