The ordination of new presbyteral and diaconal ministers has become a highlight of the Conference week.  Having been received into full Connexion at the service of Sunday Worship in the morning, presbyters, deacons, family and friends travel to local places of worship to be ordained. 

Services will take place on the afternoon of Sunday 25 June. A ticket is required to attend these. Online ticket booking is now closed, but if you missed your chance to book tickets please write to us using this contact form, stating which event or service you would like tickets for, and how many you require.
