About this year's speaker

Phil Heaps is co-pastor at Highbury Baptist Church, a small, inner-city church within cheering distance of Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

Prior to that, he served for sixteen years as full-time elder at Grace Church Yate (after spending five years fixing bugs for Microsoft!).

Now, Phil also teaches New Testament Greek at London Seminary and is involved in mentoring men for pastoral ministry. 

He has written several evangelistic give-away books and teaches each year in Albania.

Phil is married to Ruth and (like Job) has three beautiful daughters. Phil and Ruth also have a son (soon to go to university), and three fine sons-in-law.

Food and Fellowship

For many, the highlight of the Conference is the opportunity for fellowship with others who share the same love for Christ and His church. As usual the ample coffee and meal breaks provide an excellent opportunity for that as well as the chance to browse the well-stocked bookstall.

Please book your place at the conference before 16 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.
