This conference is open to all members from our partner churches and to those looking into Advance.
In addition to hearing from members of the Advance UK Team, we will be joined by Donnie Griggs and his team from One Harbor Church in North Carolina. We are also thrilled to have Sam & Becki Cox, based at Monument Church, who will be leading our times of worship together.

An individual donor who has been giving extremely generously to our partnership in some of our most challenging parts of the world has been hit with a financial crisis and cannot continue. This money has been essential in supporting pastors and churches and without it, there could be real hardship. At our UK Conference, we will be taking up an offering to go towards this immediate need, while plans are being put in place for the long term sustainability of the churches involved.
BYO water bottle/ coffee cups
We would like to try to minimise our plastic waste at this conference. We are asking people to bring their own coffee cup/ water bottle that can be refilled throughout the conference.
Sam & Becki Cox and Jon Clark will be gathering worship leaders together over lunch on Friday. If this is you are involved in leading worship in your church, you are warmly invited to come along to this session.
