  1. This is a tall ask but is there any chance this could be moved? There are already a few key conferences in the near future (Younger Ministers, EMA, etc) that to get time off for this might be tricky! OR another suggestion - could you have one up here North West?

  2. Hi Kip. The short answer is, "No" because we had to pick a date time and place for an experimental venture - and there will always be some people it won't suit.

    But why not set one up which is more accessible in your area? Have a word with eg Justin Mote, keep in touch with myself and go for it! I'd travel if available.

  3. Sounds like it will be a great conference. Any chance the audio will be available later on?

  4. I'd love to have one in the North and/or have the audio available if that's possible?

  5. It's not really a conference aimed at delivering 'landmark' talks - rather at cementing together those who actually attend and encouraging them to take things forward in their own areas - so Mike, if you want one, run one! We'll give you all the help we can.
