And bring as many other folk from your church as you can, because you really will be encouraged, you will be equipped and you’ll go back with a fresh passion and zeal to reach people with the gospel.”

When you sign up for one of the dedicated network streams at the conference, you’ll attend three sessions to help equip you in your church or community where you are sharing the gospel. And the network will go on beyond the conference – as a support and mentor group. You’ll get the opportunity to journey with a group of people who are interested and passionate about the same area of ministry as yourself.
“The EQUIP conference offers affordable and ongoing training to volunteers, workers, teachers and pastors in Wales. Our church volunteers left the event empowered, excited and more confident in the Gospel.”
“The most valuable part of the conference was the time in network streams, as they were really relevant to everyday life and helped to shine the gospel into people’s difficult lives and problems.”
“EQUIP is more than just a conference! Don’t miss two packed days of teaching, networking and encouragement to support you in your local church ministry.”
“The [EQUIP 2017] conference had a fantastic impact on all those who attended from our Diocese and everyone came away inspired and…equipped(!) to continue God’s work in their individual callings and to contribute to our work as a Diocese more fully too.”
“These Forums are enormously important for the future of Christianity in Europe.”
“The discipleship seminar covered how we as believers can play a part to ensure that we are encouraging and enabling Christians (including ourselves) to be true followers and disciples of Christ, in word and deed.”
