Scripture Union Northern Training Conference

The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire
Friday 28 Feb - Sunday 2 March 2014

Our 2014 Northern Training Conference will have the theme 'Discipleship From Scratch' and we are delighted to welcome Rev Jen Middleton, North East Regional Director of Urban Saints, as our keynote speaker.

We will enjoy the extensive facilities of The Hayes Conference Centre from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon.


The cost is £130.00 which includes two nights en-suite accommodation and all meals and refreshments.

This conference is aimed at all those involved in children's, youth and family ministry. Scripture Union Holiday and Mission Leaders from the North of England are particularly encouraged to attend.

Over the course of the weekend we will focus on discipleship:

  • What does it look like?
  • What does this mean in practice?
As we face the second question we shall consider it in two ways:
  • For different age ranges
  • In different contexts, e.g. schools, family, church groups.

There will be lots of opportunities to meet and discuss the issues raised with other delegates working in similar contexts to your own, and to share ideas and resources.

To get an idea what it is like to attend the Scripture Union Northern Training Conference, you might like to read a report from one delegate at last year's conference, 'Inspiring A New Generation' which was based at Bawtry Hall near Doncaster. Rae Gaukroger, leader of Hexham Mission and one of the workshop leaders from the conference, has provided a brief report of how it went: Booking form for Swanwick 2014
