OCM Conference Uk

4-7 April 2024

A time to be freshly envisioned and equipped

Our annual church weekend away is such an important time in the life of the church: a time to be with family, a time to be freshly envisioned, a time to be equipped, and a time that we should all prioritise. It is a wonderful time to celebrate the amazing covenant life we have in Christ, and God is always faithful to bring direction for the way forward together as a family.

As always, we come first to worship our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our hearts, to proclaim His goodness, and experience His wonderful presence. Year after year we have been privileged to have God speak to us, direct us, and inspire us in both the prophetic and preached word. We look forward to this time together with much anticipation!
