Pastoral Refreshment Conferences

February 3 2025 - February 7 2025

Hearts at Rest in Jesus

In partnership with Living Leadership, these conferences are a place where church leaders and their spouses can come to receive from the Lord and be refreshed for their life in ministry. Set in the beautiful Lake District, there is a choice of two 3-day mini-breaks:

– Monday 3rd – Wednesday 5th February 2025
– Wednesday 5th – Friday 7th February 2025

The conferences are specially tailored to the needs of leaders, with refreshment and encouragement through Bible talks, discussion groups, prayer and space. With it’s 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 take a step back from daily ministry demands, share fellowship with others in similar contexts, be prayed for, and be refreshed for the seasons ahead.

The theme of 2025’s conference is Hearts at Rest; that we can only serve for the long-haul if we ourselves are settled and secure in our own rest in Jesus.

This year’s conferences will be held at the Newby Bridge Hotel in the Lake District.

"A beautiful location, wonderful worship, great teaching and authentic, vulnerable fellowship all combined to provide real refreshment for this thirsty soul!"
