National Conference 2018

Online Registration

This year's annual National Conference will be from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October 2018. By restricting attendance at our events to Members, who have all agreed with our Basis and Code of Confidentiality, we ensure our events are safe for those attending to share in confidence.

Speakers

Our main speaker will be Simon Ponsonby, who will be teaching on the Saturday. For sessions on the Friday and Sunday, there will be additional teaching from Stuart Parker and Rob Wood.

We will put the session titles here as they become available:

  • Session 1 - Friday (Stuart/Rob) - ""
  • Session 2 - Saturday (Simon) - ""
  • Session 3 - Saturday (Simon) - ""
  • Session 4 - Sunday (Stuart/Rob) - ""

 

Seminar Options

We intend to offer two seminar options on the Saturday:

  • Ruth and Paul's seminar will be “Holiness through hardship - how life’s struggles can help us mature in Christ”
  • Jem's seminar will be "Not alone: finding family in the church” 

 

Saturday afternoon options

On the Saturday afternoon, there are three hours of free time to relax however you wish to. There are three activity options that you can opt into below. There will also be some slots to talk through personal matters with people from the prayer ministry team: you can sign up for one of these slots at the conference.

TBC with Frank to local site of interest. There will be a charge for this outing to cover the entry fee.   
Low Ropes course with Stuart. We'll be offering the Low Ropes activity once more in the woods on site, which is always a lot of fun practising balance, problem solving and working together as a team. This activity is free of charge. frisbee golf image
Walk with Tim. This will be our usual but spectacular circular walk from the site. Stout shoes are recommended as the walk can be muddy. This activity is free of charge. aqueduct

 

Discounts and bursary fund

For the second year running, we have managed to keep the costs unchanged. The cost of attending the whole weekend is £160 per person, with other options available for those only able to come for part of the time. Note that this year we are no longer offering the deposit option to secure your place, as this option doesn't work well with booking now being online. If you would prefer to pay in instalments, then please email alison@truefreedomtrust.co.uk and Alison will be happy to agree with you when you can make smaller payments.

We have two standard discounts available:

  • 10% off Early Bird for booking prior to 1 August 2018 (note that to qualify for this discount, you must pay for your place in full by 1 August 2018)
  • 25% off for unwaged/low-waged, full-time students and active TFT Voluntary Workers

We also have a bursary fund, contributed to by members, with the intention that no-one should be prevented from attending the event due to lack of money. If you are interested in applying for financial support, please email alison@truefreedomtrust.co.uk with your request, stating how much you can afford to pay. We ask that everyone makes some contribution to their fee, however small.
