Aspire – Main Venue

Aspire - The Main Venue

The theme for the Aspire Venue in 2017 is ‘Inside Out.’  We believe that God wants us to transform us on the ‘inside’ by the power of His Holy Spirit, in order to send us out to transform the ‘outside’ world of the communities and networks in which we live.  We want this Landmark conference to make an impact on the Landscape around us as we go from the meeting place to the marketplace.





So the themes our speakers will explore will be about God’s internal work of transformation in us, equipping us to go in mission to our localities.  There will be practical seminars throughout the weekend which will give a practical equipping – while in the main teaching sessions, the focus will be on getting a vision for God’s transformation of our world, and allowing him to get us ready to play our part.
