Dr Andrew Root will share his work and research drawing on the work and theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his practice of placing “the first third” in the centre of Christian community.  The day will offer refreshing perspectives on what it means to be an intergenerational church that encourages belonging, participation and shared life for all.
