Conferences and Reteats UK

I’ve been having a trawl around to try and find what’s out there for the next year in terms of retreats and conferences for Christian youthwork and can find surprisingly little? (especially given the number of Church and Para Church employed youth workers). If you can add to the list then please do so. Also, anybody in the know as to whether there will be a Matrix conference in 2009?

  1. There was a meeting in Decemeber about the future of the Matrix conference which I didn’t get to and as yet not heard what came out of it…
