What do you need at the start of the year?

The Fresh Streams Conference offers spiritual refreshment through ministry, teaching, prayer and worship. What’s more, the food is great and the rooms are warm and comfortable!

Each January ministers, leaders, elders, deacons, worship leaders, youth leaders – whole church leadership teams – come to The Hayes and are inspired and invigorated.

You are invited to join them!

This year we are offering a “hybrid” conference and we shall be onsite and online for these 3 days in January. Information regarding booking in for the online experience of the conference will be available from the beginning of December. For now we are encouraging you to book and come along in person.

The theme will be Back to the Future 2 as we shall build on  the 2021 Conference theme and continue to use Jeremiah 6:16 as our key text
“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

The conference begins with registration on Monday 10 January at 2pm, first session 3.30pm, and ends with lunch on Wednesday 12 January.
We shall have BSL interpreters for the main sessions of our event and for some seminars.

We are delighted to be partnering with BMS World Mission in delivering this year’s Conference and we want to thank Baptist Insurance Company for their generous grant to Fresh Streams to help us plan and produce a hybrid conference for 2022

Alongside this role he dedicates his time to songwriting, coaching and leading worship across the UK and abroad.
