SWF Annual Conference 2020

The Susanna Wesley Foundation Annual Conference

will be on

Tuesday 16th June, 2020

at Southlands College, University of Roehampton, London.

The Susanna Wesley Foundation’s 2020 conference will take place on Tuesday June 16th at Southlands College, the University of Roehampton. The theme is ‘Flourishing’, and as is customary for this annual event, the conference will offer a blend of the academic and the ‘practical’, provide opportunity for conversation and participation, and cross disciplinary boundaries.

Our understanding of ‘flourishing’ embraces the notion that to flourish as human beings means being able to exercise our God-given characteristics and gifts for the common good: it is about being inter-connected, relational, creative and productive, with an identity that is shaped by being made, inherently and continually, in the image of God.

The sessions will reflect this understanding and include a look at inclusion and community flourishing, dementia and older age, practices (reflective prayer, Celtic Christianity, creative practice), the flourishing of creatures and the environment, and flourishing in ministry.

The conference will be relevant to both lay and ordained, academics and practitioners, Methodists and non-Methodists. Parallel streams, and a mixture of methods and media, will allow participants to engage with the conference in different ways according to their interests and roles.
