We now have a fixed date and a provisional retreat centre booking for the 1st UK Methodist Bloggers Conference.
Put 4th and 5th January 2008 in your diaries.
This is a very simple location for people driving as it is approx 2 miles from M5 junction 4. The instructions for trains and buses also look simple.
Price should be £60 per person. That includes accommodation, meals (Friday lunch & dinner, Saturday breakfast), wifi Internet access and the conference itself.
Friday 4th January
Noon: Welcome & Worship followed by Lunch
Evening worship followed by Dinner
Evening session followed by Night Prayer
Saturday 5th January
Morning Prayer followed by Breakfast
Holy Communion, finishing by noon.
- The conference centre is no longer available for our alternative date of 11/12th, hence the decision to go for the earlier dates.
- The programme is not going to be all technical but relationship building and reflections on how we can work and relate to each other will be key elements. We are looking for Session Leaders and specific topics (as well as some chill time).
- There will be some opportunities for specific technical advice and help but these may be done in smaller groups.
- Volunteers to lead the various times of worship are welcomed so that we can represent some of the variety within Methodism. However, I would like us to consider some consistency/progression in scripture/theme so provide a coherent conference.
Questions/Bookings etc all welcome by email or comments below.
