Trust me; hiring a car for a long journey is well worth it! This is what we decided to do this weekend; we arrived in Harrogate at 8:30pm, on Friday evening having driven up from Birmingham after school. We had quite a straightforward journey with one refreshment stop and only minor delays. We stayed at The Old Swan Hotel in the centre of the city, and were impressed with the facilities and service there. The children loved their section of the family room-quite spacious, so lots of room for playing! After a bath, story, prayer and a good night’s sleep (with the obligatory visit to the bar for the adults), we were ready to enjoy the first session at the Harrogate Conference Centre.

The church is situated in a very busy location in the town, amongst numerous shops, pubs and restaurants. The building dates back to the early 20th century, a very big and grand place, both inside and out.

Michele and I were privileged to have an informal chat with Samuel Escobar, a leading Latin American theologian and Missiologist.

Samuel was one of the twelve speakers this year’s Catalyst Live 2016. Prior to him speaking in Birmingham, we were able grab a little time in the evening with him here at IMC.

In our preparation for our Mission to Peru next year, I’ve had a chance to read a few of books on Integral mission, including his book, ‘The New Global Mission.’ Escobar’s takes integral mission in a more challenging direction. Instead of excluding both religious and political structures, he looks at the Latin-American regions influence of the...
