One of the ways that Micah Network provides support to members and to the wider Christian community is to provide, facilitate and convene national, regional and global events on issues relevant to the network and our focus areas. The types of events Micah Network uses are:
This is an informal gathering of representatives from Christian organisations to exchange thoughts, opinions, feelings and testimonies around a specific topic / theme. It is an opportunity for members and interested non-members to discuss developments and thinking, to explore theological perspectives, good practice and learning.

This is a formal gathering of members and interested non-members to meet around an agreed topic or theme. It involves an exchange of views, sharing of advice and learning, consideration of best practice, deliberation over issues of concern, encouragement / promotion of agreed practice. Micah Network convenes consultations at global, regional and national levels
This is an educational and capacity enhancing event where members learn, exchange information and problem solve so as to continual improve and strengthen impact. Micah Network may facilitate workshops where members have expressed a need. Micah Network will signpost to workshops being held by members or partners.
This is a formal gathering of experts, practitioners and advisors that consider outputs or previous work so as to gain insight and learning to inform current and future work. Micah Network may carry out reviews of resources, outputs, case studies, thematic or cross cutting issues, responses and or declarations.

Over guidance and management is under Micah Network Staff and Regional Coordination Groups. Participant’s fees financially cover events – the budget is developed on a cost recovery basis only. Every effort is made to keep costs low and feasible for all members. Consultations generally incorporate:
