This year’s MODEM annual conference takes the theme ‘Transforming Communities: Power & Powerlessness’, which asks ‘Where does the power lie to bring about change in Church and community’?
Approaches like Asset Based Community Development and Appreciative Inquiry have challenged the dominant Deficit Model in human and community development. At the same time within the churches, there are various attempts to bring about radical and transformative change in order to survive and grow, through initiatives such as Fresh Expressions and Reform & Renewal in the Church of England.
This conference aims to encourage a dialogue to emerge between these two movements, exploring how power works within communities and churches, and how healthy growth and change is enabled and hindered within them.
