In-Person - ACC National Conference 2022 - Swanwick
@Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Alfreton, Derbyshire,
The theme of the conference is drawn from Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (NIV) As an ecumenical body, we want to celebrate the diversity amongst our membership and in the field of counselling and ministry of pastoral care; equally we want to celebrate the unity we have in Christ. We trust the conference will be a vehicle for it.
There is a full training programme.
