Why choose us?


In this busy world we live in, it’s really important to take some time out, to build relationships, to have some fun and come together as one. Christian Conference Trust gives your group the space to shake off the dust of life and provides the perfect place to relax, recharge and reconnect.

Our large conference centres host a full range of events for Christian groups, from exclusive-use residential conferences for 400 delegates, to team meetings, church weekends away, youth group breaks, exhibitions and training events.


We're on average half the price of commercial venues*

Our quality conference centres are run ‘not-for-profit’ so that everyone can benefit, and we believe that no-one should be left behind. That’s why we offer discounted prices for churches and Christian charities & organisations.

Children aged 5 and under stay for free and those aged 6-16 enjoy a sizable reduction (terms apply). We’ve got special offers for church youth group breaks and midweek discounts so that everyone can afford to benefit from time spent together.


It’s all included

One simple, great value price includes everything you will need during your event. You’ll enjoy a fully catered experience which can be tailored to your group’s individual requirements or specific dietary needs.

There are no hidden charges for using our facilities. High quality audio and visual equipment, Wi-Fi, unlimited tea, coffee and hot chocolate are all included and unlike some other conference centres or hotels, our accommodation is charged per person, with no supplements for single occupancy.

Bursary fund available

To help as many people as possible to experience your event, we have created a bursary fund for Christian groups and organisations. We look to provide funding to delegates who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.

Often, the bursaries enable delegates to enjoy their first ever weekend away and allow them a break from their normal routine, their cares and their worries.

Space for your ministry

Our values and Christian heritage set us apart from many other conference venues throughout the UK. Since our inception over 100 years ago, we have been helping Christian organisations to promote the Christian faith by enabling people to gather together for conferences, retreats and meetings. We provide a safe space in which to meet, learn, worship, contemplate and pray.

You’ll be amongst friends who not only understand the Christian community, we are part of it! Should you need individual communion glasses, we have them; looking for an outdoor space to worship in the sunshine, we have it; or need a quiet place for an early morning prayer meeting, it’s yours.


Taking our responsibilities seriously

We take our environmental and social responsibilities very seriously. Our centres are blessed to be located in fantastic natural environments and we are determined to ensure that your stay with us is as ecologically responsible as possible. Take a look at some of the initiatives we have in place and some of the exciting new projects we have planned.
