This conference is for all leaders or staff members in FIEC churches, as well as leaders from churches that are considering FIEC affiliation.

Leading a church takes more than one man. Even in a church with a lone pastor, other members of the congregation need leadership skills for the church to function; that includes elders and deacons, but also anyone who has a responsibility in the church.

Our annual conference in November 2019 will help you to grow leaders at every level of church life. We’ll especially be thinking about raising-up and training elders and deacons, alongside how we can equip leaders for different ministries across the church.

To guide our thinking, we are delighted to have Mark Dever and Colin Smith to speak in our main sessions. In the coming weeks we will be revealing a host of seminars and sessions to help us to think through our main theme.

But we’re opening bookings for the conference now to offer you and your church the best possible price:

  • Book on or before 30 September: £190
  • Book on or after 1 October: £225

Click here for full terms and conditions which you will need to agree to when you book. Don’t forget, your conference pass includes all the plenary and seminar sessions at the conference as well as your lunch and evening meals. You will need to book your own accommodation and travel.

You can book selected hotels via our dedicated webpage.

There are other hotels and options that can be secured independently. For example, some church teams choose to share self-catering accommodation.

You can fly to Exeter from a variety of UK airports and there are discounted train tickets available from GWR. Simply select “Torquay Conference” as the destination on the GWR journey planning page. The tickets will be available around three months from the start of the conference.

If you are attending the conference then you can join the Leaders’ Conference group on Facebook to arrange sharing lifts, coordinate meet-ups at the conference, or make other practical arrangements. Find it at
