I’m still buzzing from all the incredible talks and performances at Catalyst Live – and I expect you are too!

We heard from some of the most brilliant speakers, thinkers and creative minds around with a lineup that included Paula Gooder, Rosie Harper, David Bebbington, Baroness Elizabeth Berridge, Amy Orr-Ewing, Rula Khoury Mansour, Ron Choong and Gary V Nelson, not to mention our exclusive video interview with Stanley Hauerwas and lots of music from Britain’s favourite comedy-music duo, Harry and Chris.

The days in Birmingham and Bristol were packed with great talks, conversation, prayer, laughter and singing. I was thrilled to chat to so many of you who attended. You both inspired and encouraged me, and I personally want to thank you for making Catalyst Live 2018 such a memorable event.

If you were unable to make it, don’t panic as we’ll be putting a full set of the talks on this website by 22 November, so stay tuned for news on when they go live.

Once again, thank you for all your wonderful support for Catalyst Live. It was a very special, and important, event.

And if you’re looking further ahead, Catalyst Live will return for more Mission of the Mind in 2020.
