Annual Conference

CISC 33rd Annual Conference

2-3 February 2023

Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel and Spa

Our annual Conference is the perfect opportunity for meaningful conversations – particularly in the wee small hours! – and we look forward to welcoming you to the 33rd CISC Conference at Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel and Spa. Our theme is:

‘Where are we now? Where are we going?’
‘Pausing with the Woman at the Well’
…whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst
(John 4:14)

As the title and scriptural adage suggests, the Conference will be our customary balance of challenge, discernment and friendship. The programme is firming up with the usual mix of keynote addresses, hosted conversations and workshops.
