It's hard to imagine anything more central to our faith than the character of our God. And the Bible teaches that God is Triune, that the one living and true God is three - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Yet the doctrine of the Trinity remains mysterious to many Christians. And even if we think we understand it, it's often hard to see the point. What practical relevance could there be to the doctrine of the Trinity?
We'll be tackling these questions and many more at the 2016 Emmanuel Church Conference on Saturday 12 March.
Come along to explore what the doctrine of the Trinity means. Discover why it matters that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit - what difference it makes to our relationship with God, our prayers, our worship, our church communities, and our mission to the world.
