This year we’re excited to introduce a new panel of speakers sharing about the New Things God is doing different areas of society.
The panel will be hosted by Pippa Baker, a full-time missionary within the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. Her mission is to see young adults raised up as radical disciples of Jesus, to see the Body of Christ further united and to encourage the Catholic Church and beyond to explore our primary call to be worshippers of Jesus.
Speakers on the panel will represent public services, social justice organisations, faith communities and parish missions. They include:

Jim is President of the Guild of Health and St Raphael, and Vice-Chair of the Healthcare Executive Group for the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales.
