Modem Leadership Conference Modem2017

Thursday 7 December - Friday 8 December, Sarum College, Salisbury

What is the Church for? Mobilising and organizing beyond Sunday morning

Modem’s annual conference returns to Sarum College, set in the serene surroundings of Salisbury’s Cathedral Close. The conference brings together experts from the fields of leadership, management and ministry for stimulating conversations between church and business communities.

This conference aims to help all to understand more about what is the church for, to help churches to mobilise and organize beyond Sunday morning.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Mike Higtonon ‘The Church as Witness’.

Dr. Graham Adams on ‘The Church and the Solidarity of the Shaken’.

Both keynote speakers plan to be with us throughout the conference, so that the whole community can develop its thinking and development and make good use of the wisdom and ideas of the speakers, as well as of each other.


The programme will include talks from keynote speakers, contributions from members of the community, opportunities for discussion in groups, and the option of joining in the rhythm of worship at nearby Salisbury Cathedral.

The aim is to uncover different perspectives, to make new connections and to open up conversation which will continue beyond the life of the conference. It is anticipated that the title of the conference will trigger a far-ranging set of responses and we are looking to seeing what emerges as we explore the terrain together.
