Spirituality & Public Theology

Our inaugural conference is an exciting opportunity four the KLC community to gather in person, to celebrate the people that God has brought together, and to share our extraordinary gifts with one another. Our conference explores the vital importance of deep spiritual formation for Christian public engagement, and promises thought-provoking key-note presentations, art, music, poetry, book launches, community, and many other avenues of enjoyment of God’s good world.

The theme for this year’s gathering is First Things First: Spirituality and Public Theology. Our aim at KLC is to accompany the Spirit on his mission, and in order to do this we need continually to attend to our spiritual formation. The journey in – spirituality – opens out to the journey out – our vocations in the world, and both are essential if we are to be salt and light. The gathering will include times of silence and worship, listening to one another’s stories, time for our hubs to gather as desired, rigorous exploration of the nature of public theology, and more. 

Space is limited. Take advantage now of our early-bird special to avoid disappointment.
