2017 Conference PosterThe UK Annual Conference - The Horizon of Christ - led by Fr Laurence Freeman will be held over the weekend of 16–18 June 2017.

We shall be returning to High Leigh Conference Centre where the successful ‘One and the Many’ conference was held in 2013. It promises to be a very special time, with talks from Fr Laurence and opportunities for questions and interaction interleaved with meditation. There will be workshops, discussion groups, time for browsing the bookshop, walking in the grounds and socialising. We will end with Sunday morning Eucharist and lunch.

In speaking on the horizon of Christ, the theme of this year’s conference, Fr Laurence said:
“The Christian contemplative experience is an ever-deeper discovery of the mystery of Christ into whose life we merge. Community happens among those who are growing in this new way of seeing and understanding life. Our heart and minds and the generosity of our spirits expand exponentially.
How does our daily meditation and our work of sharing the gift of meditation help us – amid all the troubles and neediness of our world – to bear witness in service to others while travelling towards the horizon that is Christ?”

Agenda & Workshops
Fr Laurence’s talks will be integrated into a rhythm of meditation, simple body awareness, opportunities for discussion and workshops exploring the essential spiritual practices. A full agenda will be sent to attendees before the conference but you may wish to note that registration is from 4pm on the first day and the conference ends after lunch on Sunday.
