Brigade Conference 2020
The theme of this year's Brigade Conference, to take place on 5th September 2020 in Birmingham, England, will be "2020 & Beyond" as we celebrate our current work and think ahead to the future.
The focus of the day will be the launch of a new five-year strategic plan which has been shaped by the strategic review carried out in 2019. The day will include the AGM, a session focussing on the quality of our work led by Graeme Reekie (author of the strategic review), updates from the staff team and a chance to worship together and share in fellowship and discussion.
The conference will be held at Carrs Lane Conference Centre in Birmingham and is deliberately being styled as a day event commencing at 10.00am and finishing by 5.00pm. The venue has excellent transport links and is located at the heart of the city centre. The cost for the day including lunch will be £30.
The Brigade is at an exciting and important moment in its history, and we hope the conference will provide the opportunity for us to inspire and encourage one another for the journey ahead.
We hope you will be motivated to attend, and to encourage others to come along too.
