PGP Partnership days provide the opportunity to meet to encourage one another, be equipped and pray together for the work of the gospel across the Peninsula. Each day includes some high-quality teaching on a Bible book or subject.
The teaching element of Partnership days is open to all and are particularly suitable to those who teach the Bible on a regular basis, especially members of a staff team, eldership and small group leaders.
One of the sessions during the day (usually after lunch) also provides the opportunity for the leaders of Partner Churches to meet together.

Saturday 20 January 2018, 10am-4pm, POSTPONED
PGP Annual Conference, with Justin Mote (Director of Training for the North West Partnership)
Justin became a Christian as a teenager through a teacher at school. After school he worked in retailing before going to theological college. He has served in churches in Basingstoke, London and the Wirral. His passion is to equip people for a Bible teaching ministry in local churches. Justin is married to Jo and they have three children. He loves watching cricket and would love to play golf better.
Justin will be giving 2 talks:
Confident the Word will build the Kingdom
Confident the Word is sufficient for your ministry
Justin writes: “We sometimes look at ministries in other places that seem to be going well and wonder ‘what are they doing that I am not doing?’ We all want our ministries to grow, see people come to Christ and grow in Him. In two sessions I will look at how we can be confident that God’s Word will achieve what God wants to achieve.”
PGP Chair, Philip de Grey-Warter will also expound God’s word for us:
Selfiess sacrifice for the sake of others’ salvation (Philippians 1)
There will also be an opportunity to hear news of our partnership in the gospel around the region.
Venue: St Leonard’s Church Exeter
10am-4pm (coffee served from 9.30am)

Monday 14 May 2018, 10am-4pm, with Kanishka Raffel (Dean of Sydney Cathedral).
Kanishka was born in London to Sri Lankan parents and was raised as a Buddhist. While studying law at Sydney University a friend gave him a copy of The Gospel according to John and he subsequently became a Christian. Prior to becoming Dean in 2016, Kanishka served as Rector of St Matthew’s in Perth. He is married to Cailey and they have two daughters. He loves curry, cricket and having gelato at the beach with his family but knows no pleasure so great as sharing the news about Jesus with people who have no idea who Jesus is or how much he loves them.
Venue: St Matthew’s Church, Elburton, Plymouth, 10am-4pm (coffee served from 9.30am)
