This weekend will help us consider what’s good about our own ministry, what support we and other MSEs might need to become even more fruitful, and what our individual and collective priorities might be to enable us fully to enjoy the fruits of the Spirit.

Cost, from dinner on Friday evening to lunch on Sunday, inclusive:

£175 (members and spouses); £185 (non-members)

Grants may be available from your Church to cover all or part of the cost – apply now to get their support! A limited number of scholarships are available to enable attendance.
