Norwich faith groups invite to join transformation chat
Churches and Christian groups across Norwich are being invited to join a round-table conversation with residents, statutory agencies, community and faith groups who would like to work together for community transformation.
The ROC Conversation is coming to Norwich on the February 7 and already people are booking into this free event. Taking place at The King’s Centre on King’s Street, NR1 1PH. Norwich between 7 and 9pm. The Conversation aims to bring together those who have an interest in the local community.
Debra Green OBE Founding Director of National Charity Redeeming Our Communities said: “We’ve hosted more than 160 ROC Conversations across the UK and have always been surprised by the amount of hidden work taking place in the community and amazed at how easily gaps in provision can be met by existing community groups once they become aware of the need.”
Darren Woodward, Senior Leader of Oak Grove Community Church, Norwich, said: “Having become aware of the work of ROC earlier this year, through hearing Debra Green speak at a Leaders Conference, the seed of an idea to bring this to Norwich was planted, and is now gathering pace.”
Recent ROC Conversations have taken place in Tavistock and in Northants, where earlier this week over 400 people of good-will representing all areas of the local community came together with a view to working together for community transformation.
Future ROC Conversations are planned for Wellingborough, Rushden and Kettering as well as Norwich early next year.
