Our next LYCIG conference is planned for 15-17 October 2021 at High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon
A diocesan residential conference to encourage and equip your church to grow – in numbers, in spirituality, in mission.

In previous years, the cost of attending this residential conference, including all conference sessions and resources, accommodation & meals, has been significantly subsidised by the Mission Department – in fact, by two thirds, reducing it to just £80 per person. It is hoped that this reduced cost can be offered again for our 2021 LYCIG Conference to encourage teams (max. 8 people) from a parish to attend together; the team should include at least one ordained person. Under 30’s go free!
Booking link for 2021 LYCIG will be open a year ahead of conference dates.

Hear from some of those who attended LYCIG in March 2019:
- “This course was really good for us because it gave time to think away from the pressures of everyday work – it would have been even better had we had more members of our team to join the conversation, ..” St Michael’s Church, St Albans (The Revd Kenneth Padley)
- ” … quick and easy way to describe the course is ‘inspirational'” …… “content is well thought out, well-rehearsed and delivered with passion” …. “what did we gain? – time to sit back and reflect …” “remember that we should be sharing all that we have in the love, hope and comfort of following Jesus” Bishop’s Hatfield Team – full testimonial here
