Hayes Christian Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire, DE55 1AU.

The Hayes Centre is an excellent conference centre providing very comfortable well equipped bedrooms and delicious food and drink. The cost of attending covers all meals and non-alcoholic drinks. A warm Teams welcome awaits you, particularly if you have never been to a Gathering before.
Please note that the deadline date for registering is 1 April 2023.
Its theme “New Wine, Fresh Skins!” blends diverse inspirations and aspirations under 4 R’s:
To convene the first significant in-person Teams conference across any of the 3 GB Regions since the Teams GB 60th Anniversary celebration of November 2019 (before Covid lockdown).
To relax and reflect in pleasant surroundings, reconnecting with old friends and making new friends.
To tap into Mary’s spiritual joy that coloured her whole outlook, stirring her to exclaim “My soul magnifies the Lord!” and to feel compassionately about those fraught and overwrought around her “They have no wine”.
To sketch a way forward from Covid wilderness toward the future of Teams GB, tackling organisational vulnerabilities, and shaping as a vibrant pastoral offering within a synodal Church.
Solidarity is a way of financially supporting Teams people who would otherwise struggle to attend Teams events.
