Descent of the Dove: Knowing and Loving in Spirit and Truth
The focus of the conference in July 2020 will be the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and the inevitable transformation which any knowledge of, faith in, or encounter with, the Holy Spirit both invites and enables.
The 2020 conference will be, DV, the third of a series following conferences in 2016 and 2018, ‘A Transforming Vision: Knowing and Loving the Triune God’ (2016), and ‘Totus Christus: Knowing and Loving the Son of Man’ (2018).
