Diocesan Conference

The Diocesan Conference 2017 took place on 9th-11th October, at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick.

Over 220 delegates from across the diocese were inspired by our keynote speakers as we explored the theme of ‘Gospel, Discipleship and Creation’.  Ruth, David and Christopher challenged and enriched our understanding and brought with them diverse perspectives and insights.
