Conference 2023 – Believing in Children

26th May 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 27th May 2023 @ 4:00 pm

with Dr Rebecca Nye

May 2023


Portobello and Joppa is a special place. Known as ‘Edinburgh’s Seaside’, with long stretches of beautiful sand and blue sea.

It is special, too, for our guest speaker, Dr Rebecca Nye. Rebecca spent her early childhood looking out on this beach, and this is where her childhood spirituality began to grow.

Because Portobello and Joppa are such an important part of Rebecca’s childhood, she asked if she could be with us in person – which we hope and pray will be possible by May 2023!

Rebecca will share a bit about her own experience of childhood spirituality in those early years as she explores with us the importance of an adult culture that believes in childhood spirituality.

2023 feels like it is a long time away, especially as our last conference was in November 2018. So, in November 2021 we’ll be going online and our speaker will be Dr Robyn Boeré, Associate Lecturer in Christian Ethics at the University of St Andrews.
