Unlike last year, we can’t show you photos of blue sky and palm trees, and ministers sunning themselves on a sparkling hotel terrace. For our 2017 conference, which was at Saunton Sands Hotel in Devon between the 20th and 22nd February, we had fog, mist, wind, and rain – in other words, precisely what you’d expect for the time of year. But we can show you some happy people! It was lovely to have Lesley Wynne (formerly part of our staff team) and her husband David with us for the conference.

We could hardly complain, warm and dry, and well fed both by both our hotel and our contributors – Ed Kaneen of South Wales Bible College, Jim Barker of Church Mission Society, and others including Bob Morris of WEBAY, Charlotte Hendy of Girls’ Brigade Ministries, and our Regional Team, as we explored the theme Transformed and Transforming.
