The Multiply Conference is for anyone involved, or looking to get involved, in site and church planting. The Multiply team are passionate about building a community of Gods people supporting each other in extending the reach of His church. The conference is one of the resources we make available to equip you in this mission. This year the event has moved online & is free to join!

Andy is a passionate church planter and author based at Reading Family church. Martin Tibbert will be hosting the conference, plus we have a range of speakers and experienced practitioners who will be leading sessions during the day. There is no such thing as "one-size fits all" when it comes to breaking new ground through church and site planting, so we plan to cover many topics during our time together with seminars and main sessions exploring different ways to break new ground.
