Held at Queens Hotel in Leeds, 17 - 18 September 2018.

The Apostle Paul considers it a key to gospel advance that members of the Philippian church ‘strive side by side for the faith of the gospel’.  The active engagement of every member of our churches in the great work of gospel proclamation is essential for the healthy advance of God's saving truth in this nation.

I am delighted that the theme of this year’s ReNew Conference is ‘Mobilise! Every Member Ministry’.  The aim is to strengthen us in our work of leading healthy local Anglican churches where all members see themselves as partners both in holding out and holding onto the glorious saving gospel of the Lord Jesus.

It will be an ideal conference to which to bring senior lay leaders and team members as we continue to work towards our goal of a nation of healthy, local Anglican churches.  I very much look forward to seeing you there.
