Pastoral Refreshment Conference

9th February 2021 | 3:00 pm - 11th February 2021 | 1:00 pm

Registration details coming soon!

***Coronavirus update: We are planning to run this event as normal and are excited about this, but obviously this depends on government guidelines.

In partnership with Living Leadership, this conference is a place where church leaders and their spouses can receive from the Lord for the refreshment of their life and ministry.

The theme of this conference is Power Perfected in Weakness. It will be a three-day mini-break, at Newby Bridge, specially tailored to the needs of leaders, with refreshment and encouragement through Bible talks, seminars, prayer and space.

With its deep emphasis on experiencing God’s grace, the annual Pastoral Refreshment Conference is regularly described as an essential oasis where church leaders and their spouses can receive from the Lord for the refreshment of life and ministry.

You’ll find a place to receive input, to be prayed for and to be encouraged in ways specially tailored to the needs of leaders. Come once and you will want to become a regular.


“Beautiful surroundings away from our context is refreshing in and of itself and raises my eyes to the Lord. But this is continued with gentle, loving Bible teaching, pastoral care and prayer and worship – which is all extremely rare and helpful for creating the conditions for me to receive from the Lord personally.” – 2019 Delegate
