Together in Faith - Lay Conference 2018

Together in Faith, the Diocese of Leeds Lay Conference, took place in Harrogate Convention Centre on Saturday 9th June 2018. Almost 1000 lay church members from across the diocese joined together for a day of encouragement, renewal and affirmation. They heard from a range of stimulating speakers and learned of the latest plans for the diocese to support and encourage lay people. They returned to their parishes ready to pass on what they had learned.
