Jesmond Conference to Feature Revd David Holloway

Good Disagreement?

The Jesmond Conference is for Anglicans seeking to consider British society in the light of Biblical truth. It aims to stimulate discussion, prayer and action. Previous conferences have dealt with (amongst other things) British values, education, sexual ethics and the future of the Church of England. (These are available to watch at www.clayton.tv). The conference consists of 4 talks by David Holloway followed by round table discussion and prayer. In addition, there are 2 Bible readings by Jonathan Pryke and a closing Q&A panel. The conference usually takes place in Newcastle upon Tyne.  However, due to the current pandemic, the 2021 conference will take place online and will be free!  

The Jesmond Conference 2021 will take place on Zoom and will run from 13:00 to 17:00 on Monday 8 March and from 09:30 to 12:30 on Tuesday 9 March.  There is no charge for this year’s online conference.  However, you still need to book a place to be allocated to a discussion group.  Please click on the booking link above.  We ask for your postal address so we can send you a conference booklet ahead of the event.  Once you have booked your place, we will email you the Zoom link on or before Friday 5 March.  (If for any reason you do not receive this, please contact Alice Lane, Conference Secretary – contact details below).  For the conference timetable, click on the link below.
