Last year’s Conference was a huge success, with a record number of attendees from our churches, and this year’s event promises to be equally good – if not even better!
Our guest speaker for 2020 is the celebrated Rev Mark Greenwood, National Evangelist for Elim Pentecostal Churches, who work in the UK, Ireland and over 40 nations around the world.
Following his appointment in January 2017, Elim Pentecostal described Mark as: ‘Known as an evangelist who presents the gospel in a humorous and engaging way, he loves equipping Christians to share their faith, giving them resources to help. He is passionate about helping the local church to build an evangelism culture that works and loves changing the perception that those outside the church have about Christianity’.
Gary Gibbs, their REACH Director, added: ‘Mark Greenwood is a very funny man, but he is deadly serious about reaching people who are far from God. You would need to look long and hard to find a more gifted and fruitful evangelist.’
It looks like we could be in for a treat!
By popular demand, Barry Goodman and his barn dance team are also returning to the Conference in 2020, for an evening session of toe-tapping fun on Wednesday 15 April.
The Youth Conference will be running alongside the Conference with its own programme, but they will also be joining us on a number of occasions. Jess Beaumont, a Youth Worker at Ruwach Church in Haywards Heath, will be their guest speaker.
In addition there will be plenty of activities going on to amuse and inspire the younger children, run by Joanne Kennedy and Ellie Lake from Turners Hill Free Church.
A new introduction for this year is a planned crèche provision to enable more of our families with young children to attend. You will notice on the booking form that we are inviting a voluntary donation of £10 for our under 12s to help to cover the costs for the crèche. However, please be assured that we would not want this to deter people from attending, so if this might be prohibitive, please just let us know.

As always, we are offering an Early Bird discount for all bookings made by 22 February.
The event runs from Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16 April 2020. Please click on the links below for the Conference Booking Form and the Provisional Programme.
We look forward to seeing you there!
