Dr. Robert Jones of Southern Baptist Seminary Kentucky will be helping us to pursue peace in all our relationships and how to help others in doing the same.

Food and Fellowship

For many, the highlight of the Conference is the opportunity for fellowship with others who share the burden of leadership in a small church. As usual the ample coffee and meal breaks provide an excellent opportunity for that and to browse the well-stocked bookstall.

Please book your place at the conference before 1st March to guarantee lunch.


The Conference will be held at Central Offices, the home of Dewsbury Evangelical Church. The church is near to the M1 and M62 and thereby easily accessible. Most places in the North of England are less than two hours by car and many less than one hour.
