Updated Monday 8th June 2020.

Given the continued uncertainty around COVID-19 and the reality that social distancing is likely to be with us for many months to come, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Leaders’ Conference.

This was not our desire and, in fact, we had planned the whole programme and approached a variety of seminar speakers before the mid-March lockdown.

If conferences are permitted in the autumn, they are likely to be much smaller affairs with no catering. Given that such an important part of our Leaders’ Conference is the opportunity to meet others in ministry and enjoy table-fellowship together, we don’t see any attraction in a small conference with no food.

We recognise that this will be a disappointment to many of our leaders, especially those who had already booked accommodation with their favourite hotels or B&Bs from previous years. That said, in the current circumstances we don’t think there was a better option.

There are no plans to move the conference online, but we are considering a half-day video meeting to include some preaching and the FIEC AGM.

We hope that taking this decision now, rather than delaying in the hope that circumstances will change in the summer, will give you clarity and certainty and help you to plan for the Autumn.

Our prayer is that the Leaders’ Conference will return in 2021, taking place from Monday 8 – Wednesday 10 November.
