2014 UK Christian conferences

There are many conferences these days. Far too many for any one person to attend.  But here are a list of some that are taking place this year on this island that I am proud to call my home.  In fact there is at least one conference every month for six months!

If I had more time, these are the events that I would consider attending. The list doesn’t include our own 300 Leaders Conference because the dates will be announced in future months. I know I have not included every conference here in the UK.  Which ones are you planning on going to and which ones have I left off?


Acts 29 National Conference: Multiplying Churches BOOK HERE

Tuesday 4th March – Wednesday 5th March, East London Tabernacle, Mile End

The 2014 Acts 29 Europe Conference will focus upon the essentials of scattering churches around the world, also known as church planting. Attention will be given to unpacking the biblical mandate and theological foundation of this vital strategy. It will help equip us to plant explicitly gospel centred churches that thrive and reproduce even in a hostile environment such as Europe – the most secular continent in the world. Speakers include:

    This year, OnFire the Anglo-Catholic Charismatic conference http://www.onfiremission.org.uk/nextevents.html . We have Charles Whitehead and Dr Russ Parker as guest speakers.

    And very probably Greenbelt, simply because there is nowhere else quite like it in terms of diversity of worship and speakers.

  • Sam Allberry

    Worth mentioning the excellent leadership conferences run by Marcus Honeysett. The Pastoral Refreshment Conference is absolutely wonderful: https://www.facebook.com/events/1385664991652014/

  • GPD

    You missed New Wine, Soul Survivor and Momentum, Mobilize (I know that the latter ones are student and youth conferences – but you did mention Newday)

  • Ben Thorp

    You’re lucky Prestatyn got in there, or I might have had to suggest renaming the post “2014 English Christian Conferences”. You’ve included nothing north of the border (and not much north of Birmingham).

    In light of that – could I throw in a mention for CLAN Gathering 2014 (aka New Wine Scotland). Main national conference is 2-5th May in Edinburgh, and there is a special outreach event 19th-23rd July in Glasgow to coincide with the Commonwealth Games. See http://www.clangathering.org.uk/ for both events.

    Additionally, Forge Scotland is running it’s first national conference “Reactivating a Missionary Nation”, 27-29th March 2014 in Glasgow. Main sessions are with Alan and Debra Hirsch. See http://forgescotland.com/training/reactivating-a-missionary-nation.php for more details.
