New Chief Executive unveiled by Christian Conference Trust

May 2019


John Heasman CEO of CCT

We are pleased to announce the appointment of John Heasman as new Chief Executive.

John Heasman takes over from John Harrison, who provided executive lead to CCT since 2010, overseeing a period of sustained growth, significant investment in facilities and greatly enhanced service provision.

John (pictured above in the Norfolk Hall at Belsey Bridge) joins us from Christian charity Rock UK Adventure Centres where he has been Chief Executive for the past six years and previously acted as Commercial Director. He brings a wealth of experience from these roles and from previous senior appointments in the retail and banking industries.

He said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve the Christian conference scene at this time. CCT has a great track record of responding to changes in guests’ needs and continuous improvement in our conference experience.

“Christian residential ministry is where my heart is and I am committed to taking Christian conferencing to the next level at CCT; providing space where Christians can worship God, learn, discuss, encourage and hang out together as His children in beautiful surroundings with first-class facilities.”

John will take up his post as chief executive at CCT in late June.

Michael Page, Chair of Trustees, said: “The trustees believe that John’s experience will be extremely useful as we develop our work in the coming years. CCT is in a strong position and well placed to enhance our conference experience further in the years ahead, responding to our guests’ changing needs and expectations.

“At CCT we welcome tens of thousands of guests each year and are a leader in Christian residential ministry in the UK. The appointment of John demonstrates our commitment to remain at the forefront of this important ministry as we strive to serve and support churches and Christian organisations.”
