Deanery Conference and Festival 2014

The Deanery Conference and Festival 2014 is now closed for applications.

If you have any queries, or for a possible late registration, please contact the organisers.

It is with great regret that we must inform you that Archbishop Job will not be able to attend the Conference/Festival 2014, even on the last evening and Monday, because he has been summoned to accompany the Patriarch to Jerusalem.
There will therefore be no Liturgy on Monday and some adjustment to the programme.

7 May 2014

The Conference/Festival will take place between Fri 23 and Mon 26 May 2014, at the High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Herts (map).

The theme of the conference is Freedom In Christ.

This year we introduce electronic online registration as well as payments by Paypal, Credit or Debit Card and Bank Transfer. These are now the preferred methods for applying.

Details of the 2013 Deanery Festival and Conference are now available.  


Over 120 participants gathered at the High Leigh Conference Centre in Hertfordshire on the weekend of 25th - 28th May 2012.

We were blessed by having Archbishop Gabriel with us for the whole of the conference, and by the wonderful summer sunshine. Although some were sorry to have to abandon our previous conference venue, High Leigh provided an excellent centre, with beautiful grounds and excellent catering.
