The Theme of the Conference will be “Lights from Antioch.”  We shall explore the lives and teachings of 5 saints of the Church of Antioch, ancient and modern and reflect on their significance for the life and mission of the Church today in these Isles.  The 5 saints will be:  St. Ignatios of Antioch, St. Ephraim the Syrian, St. John Chrysostom, St. John of Damascus and St. Raphael of Brooklyn.

Demand for spaces is likely to be high so please act now.  There are reduced rates for children, a £10 discount for early bookers and a bursary for those who may need a little financial help.
