Its aim is to support and equip a church seeking to be a discipleship movement shaped for mission, exploring Biblically and practically how we live in our varying contemporary contexts and offering resources, training, encouragement and support for local ministry and engagement.

This year we will again gather in Scarborough (this will be our 8th gathering) for 5 days and we are so excited about our theme which is ‘Together’. This will be an opportunity to explore together what it means to be a Christian, a disciple and how we can all be part of God’s mission. Recognising that sometimes being ‘together’ is a struggle – but a struggle worth pursuing.

Working with leaders from the wider church family we will be blessed with a great wealth of wisdom and an ability to discern the movement of God’s Spirit for today’s church. Why not consider coming to share with us or passing this information to those within your congregations who would benefit from this amazing experience. Day tickets are available via the office (01782524200) and evening tickets will be available during the week. If you would like to know more then simply take a look at the website ( or drop us an email via and we will get back to you.
