“Seek First His Kingdom” (Matt 6:33 NIV)
This will be our 10th celebrate weekend and the team here in Bristol are very much looking forward to meeting you all - whether you are new, returning from last year or a seasoned veteran. We hope you will all find something to refresh you at this year’s Conference.
The conference is suitable for all ages and is open to individuals and families alike.
For our younger audience activities are split into age appropriate groups that we call streams. These are lead by experienced leaders, who will help develop the children’s relationship with the Lord through fun faith based activities - including thought provoking mime from Steve Murray.
Don’t worry if you can’t join the younger members. Through out the weekend there are various speakers, workshops and activities that you can attend. We are sure you will find these thought provoking and rewarding. Mass is offered twice over the weekend and there is also adoration and reconciliation.
We hope that the weekend will help you find inspiration and renewal in your faith in a relaxed and friendly environment.
