Christian Conference Trust, be our guest


Welcome to the home of Christian hospitality

CCT is a charity that provides excellent conference and event solutions to Christian organisations as well as charities, educational groups and businesses.

Our values and Christian heritage are what sets 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.

Whichever one of our three fantastic venues you are staying at, you will find attentive staff and a safe space in which to meet, learn, worship, contemplate and pray. We are here to make your stay with us as happy and memorable as possible.

We operate three venues in stunning surroundings

At all of our venues you will find acres of landscaped gardens for quiet reflection and to explore. If you have the time to venture further and make the most of your stay, Belsey Bridge is a stone's throw away from the Norfolk broads, The Hayes sits at the foot of the Peak District and High Leigh is a mile away from the sprawling Lee Valley Park.

Spaces to relax and reflect

We pride ourselves on providing excellent levels of service in comfortable surroundings.

At all of our centres, you will find modern lounge areas, perfect to retreat to after your day. The lounges feature licensed bars stocking a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as snacks, Fairtrade tea, coffee and other hot drinks.

If you are attending as part of a residential event, you will love our great selection of bedrooms. With a high-standard of décor and furnishings, comfortable mattresses and quiet locations, you can be assured of a good night’s sleep after your event. Most of our rooms also feature modern en-suites and in room tea and coffee making facilities.

Our helpful staff are on hand to help you with anything you may need to ensure you have a great stay with us.


There is something for everyone with our wide range of activities

Our venues have a wide range of indoor and outdoor sport and leisure facilities available for you to use.

Relax in our games rooms where you can battle a friend at table football, pool or table tennis. Children are welcome to use them too!

The Hayes has a range of indoor sporting activities available to use. Five-a-side football, badminton and basketball are all available in the purpose built sports hall. All our Centres feature indoor sport activities such as table tennis.

If the weather is nice, outdoor games can be hired for free. Challenge a friend to a game of croquet, giant draughts or connect four. For the active types there are football pitches and tennis courts to bring out your competitive side, as well as a brand new Fitness Trail/Zone to train or play (at High Leigh).

Delicious food and drink

Our expert chefs and hospitality staff create fantastic food for you, with plenty of choice and variety. We strive to provide balanced and nutritious food that is also tasty. We cater for all dietary requirements such as vegetarian, gluten-free or low fat. If you need a particular meal, our chefs will be happy to create something great for you.

We care about where your food comes from. Where possible fresh food is sourced locally and food waste is kept to a minimum. All our tea and coffee is sourced from Fairtrade suppliers and provided free of charge.


Accessible for all

We are working hard to make our venues as accessible as possible for people with disabilities. We offer a variety of rooms specifically designed with adapted doors and space for wheelchair users, alarm pull-cords and specially designed showers and bathroom suites.

Induction loops are available in our larger conference rooms for the hard of hearing. Our conference halls also cater for wheelchair users.

If you do need any extra assistance on your visit, please let one of our staff know and we will be happy to help.


Our bursary fund ensures everyone is welcome

To help as many people as possible experience an event at a CCT venue, we have created a bursary fund for Christian groups and organisations.

Designed to provide funding to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend, the fund is an essential part of the service we offer and shows our commitment to our organisations and delegates.

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