Regional Conferences

This year, as part of our commitment to supporting churches around the country, Church Society will be hosting a series of four regional conferences.

In place of our usual annual day conference, in 2020 we are hosting a series of four regional conferences on the subject of episcopacy. We anticipate that these will be particularly suitable for clergy and lay leaders of local churches. Booking is now open for the first two conferences in March:

1.30pm: Episcopacy in Principle, Lee Gatiss
2.15pm: Episcopacy in Practice, Rob Munro
3.00pm: Break for tea
3.20pm: Panel discussion, Lee Gatiss, Rob Munro, Rod Thomas
4.00pm: End.
Location:  Park Inn by Radisson, Manchester, Cheetham Hill Road, M4 4EW.

BRISTOL: March 25th
1.30pm: Episcopacy in Principle, Lee Gatiss
2.15pm: Episcopacy in Practice, Simon Austen
3.00pm: Break for tea
3.20pm: Panel discussion, Lee Gatiss, Simon Austen, Rod Thomas
4.00pm: End.
Location: Novotel Bristol Centre, Victoria Street, Bristol BS1 6HY.

There is no charge for these conferences but you MUST book in advance. The conferences are open to all, not just Church Society members. Please contact the Church Society office to confirm your place at the relevant conference. We need your name, church, diocese, and postal address in order to send the pre-conference material. Thank you.

We will be holding two further conferences later in the year in Birmingham (May 5th) and London (June 17th). Locations and full details of these will be coming soon, though the pattern of the day will be similar to the March events. Booking is not yet open for these events.

The Church Society AGM will be held on the evening of Wednesday June 24th, 2020 at St Michael’s Chester Square, London. Official notice of this will be given in due course.

Ros Clarke is Acting Director of Church Society and Course Leader of the Priscilla Programme.
