Announcing our brand-new venue

February 2024


In a testament to our commitment to fostering church fellowship and community, we have announced the opening of Highgate House, a high-quality Christian conference centre in Northamptonshire, set to open this summer.

Exclusively for Christian groups

Highgate House is a former coaching inn dating from 1663 which today has been transformed into an exclusive space for Christian groups to experience residential ministry. With 81 en-suite bedrooms, the venue can accommodate up to 159 adults and 30 children, making it ideal for exclusive-use events.

Affordable Quality

As a proud member of the Christian Conference Trust family, Highgate House continues our legacy of providing quality facilities for Christian gatherings at great value. Equipped with large meeting halls, fully catered services and being centrally located, Highgate House will help meet the significant demand from Christian groups for affordable, quality conferencing.

Growing to meet the need

By launching a third centre, we will be offering 30% more space for Christian groups to benefit from rates that are on average half the price of commercial venues*. This affordability, combined with our warm and friendly Christian welcome synonymous with High Leigh and The Hayes, makes Highgate House a great quality option for those seeking a home-from-home for conferences and group retreats.

A message from our Chief Executive

John Heasman, our Chief Executive, speaks of his delight at being able to meet the growing demand from church groups.

"Having served over 8 million believers since 1910, we are thrilled to announce the opening of Highgate House, our third centre dedicated to serving the church in fellowship and growth. We exist to see Christian ministry flourish and believe this new addition will provide a unique and affordable space for groups to gather together and strengthen their faith.

Since reopening our centres in 2021 we’ve seen demand grow significantly and we’ve spent the last two years searching for the right place to meet that demand. Highgate House is a great location to serve as many Christian groups as possible and it’s our prayer that its spectacular 17th-century manor house and gardens will bless millions of believers throughout the next 100 years of our history."
