A fine time was had by all at this year’s Connexion Conference!
The annual conference is not just a perfect opportunity for the Connexion community
to come together in friendship, it is also a time to learn, draw inspiration and share
ideas that can bring positive change and new developments to our group of 22 churches.
Mark Greenwood, our key speaker, brought encouragement, inspiration and food for thought
with his three talks based on his book Big Yes, Little Yes, Healthy Maybe – a must-read for
all Christians who are passionate about sharing their faith with others.
The children’s group also entertained and inspired guests with their take and insights on
the Parable of the Sower. Opening their presentation with a launch of paper aeroplanes,
to see which surface they might land on!
This year also marked the Conference’s 200th Year, which was celebrated with some
special cup cakes prepared by the children and two symbolic candles – far more economic
than providing 200!
The Trustees (pictured below) were delighted to welcome all of the delegates,
ministers and visitors to the Conference. David Lockett, Chair, extends huge
thanks to the organising team for their willingness to give both time and skills
to make every aspect of the event a success. Special thanks go to Elizabeth
and Joe Gregory, Simon Allaby and Ben Quant - as well as Bethany Green
for running the Youth Conference.
