Us Conference 2016: Just One World
Our conference this year (6-8 June) looked at issues of justice through the eyes of the world church.
The conference was inspired by Micah 6:8: ‘What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?’
Here is a selection of films and sound-only files of the keynote presentations.
