Europe Conference


We welcome everyone to join us for an exciting weekend of events in Central London.

When we affirm, strengthen and inspire each other we can create a loving, inclusive community for all LGBTQIA+/SSA people, and those who love them,

You are needed here! Your voice, your story, your talents, your loving heart, and your healing hands are needed. We each have individual callings that we need each other to learn how to fulfill. This weekend you will meet people who will teach you and be taught by you. You will deepen old friendships, make new friends, and make connections. You will become aware of new ways to serve and make a difference.

We look forward to welcoming you to London in July 2018. Including Pride in London, on Saturday 7th July 2018!

Lunch and dinner will be provided over the conference weekend, we ask that you find your own accommodation. If you need assistance with this, please use the contact form below.
