Archdiocesan Conference 2017

The Annual Archdiocesan Conference met from 29th to 31st May (2017) in the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick in Derbyshire.  This year saw the highest attendance ever and the topic “Ordering the Church’s Worship” was of great benefit to us all.  We were greatly blessed by the presence of our Metropolitan.  Many old friendships were renewed but we also rejoiced in many new faces and friends.  Visitors came from as far afield as Sweden (Fr Mikael) and Cyprus (Fr Matthew and Presbytera Anka).  Next year Fr Gregory is subdividing his role as Conference Organiser with a Conference Director, Fr Alexander Tefft, who will be responsible with the bishop and the parishes for choosing next year’s theme.  Please do get in touch with Fr Alexander if you have any ideas for this.  Contact him at alexander.tefft1ATgmail.com.
