We give glory to God for those who have contributed to making the Bristol Turning possible thus far and the radical generosity of a church in Bristol - enabling us to offer the training on the 22nd and 23rd of March for free to everyone! 

The Gospel is a story of God’s radical generosity to us in Jesus - His grace poured out on us in limitless abundance.  It’s for this reason that radical generosity is a key cultural hallmark of the Kingdom of God. Generosity empowers, enables and encourages.  Generosity is the business of grace and a key to revival and cultural transformation.
