Annual Conference 2021 


Fan-the-flame


1st – 3rd October 2021

Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick
Book Your Place

We are very excited to be able to launch the bookings for our annual conference at Hayes Conference Centre this year. After a year of turmoil and difficulty, it is so good to be able to meet and celebrate together the fantastic work you have done so faithfully during the months of lockdowns. We know that spending time face to face is so much more powerful than seeing each other on our laptop screens!

If you haven’t been to any of the conferences yet, there is a short film here with some information and encouragement to attend from last year’s attendees. 

Our theme this year is “Fan the Flame” from 2 Timothy 1:6-7

Fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 

We recognise that the last year has been difficult and we have all missed the sense of togetherness in worship and vision. Our prayer is that we will be renewed, inspired, refreshed and re-commissioned as we fan into flame the gifts God has birthed in us. 

We are privileged to have Rachel Gardner from Youthscape, as our keynote speaker this year and are looking forward to hearing what God will say through her. We have a full programme of great teaching, relevant seminars, personal enrichment, worship, prayer, as well as opportunities for networking and personal prayer. Do come and be encouraged, strengthened and envisioned with others who share your passion.

See below for more details of our keynote speaker and seminars.
