Bible Study with Gareth Bell

Why come to conference?

Why come along?

Whether you’re a CEF volunteer, someone involved or interested in children’s ministry, or someone wanting to hear great Bible teaching, CEF Easter Conference has something for you! We have a great lineup of speakers, who will be teaching from the Bible, reporting on mission work and leading seminars on topics relevant to both children’s ministry and to living the Christian life. If you’re a youth or young adult, there are special ‘Meltdown’ events for you in the evenings.

You’ll also be able to browse the children’s ministry resource shop, The Good Book Company bookstall, meet CEF workers and make new friends over a cup of coffee.

Easter Conference is free, has a very relaxed atmosphere, and you’ll be made very welcome— we look forward to meeting you over the weekend!
