Christians will be coming together to discuss how best to welcome residents of new housing developments at a conference this June.
The New Housing Hub is a network for Christians of all traditions who have a vision for engaging with new housing communities, with the aim of inspiring, resourcing and connecting people.
The Hub holds its first conference on Saturday, June 20 at Moortown Baptish Church in Leeds, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Government plans currently envisage 300,000 new homes being built in England every year.
The conference is open to everyone interested in this subject, and will involve looking at how local churches should react to new housing developments in their area, and how they can connect imaginatively with the new communities.
The day will also look at how churches can help shape local area plans, and the God-given opportunities for welcome, outreach and building communities.
