Annual Conference

There is no Annual Conference scheduled for 2018. Instead there will be a Group Work Conference in April 2018.

Details of Annual Conferences in the future will appear here.

General Conference details


The conference normally begins on a Monday, with the BPF AGM at 2.30pm. For conference 'first-timers' there is also a short introductory session at 3.30pm. The conference finishes with lunch on Friday.

The work of the conference takes place within evening plenary sessions at which our guest speaker will give an address, daily small personal growth groups, afternoon workshops, morning and evening worship and social occasions. More details


The conference is open to all, whether members of BPF or not, clergy or lay, professionals working in the 'talking' professions or those engaged in pastoral visiting within their local church or community, or those simply seeking space for reflection and personal growth in an ethos of Christian spirituality.

Although the conference has a Christian basis, those of other faiths (or none) are also valued.


A certificate of attendance denoting hours and broad content is provided for CPD purposes.
