Fringe Events

Fringe events are a welcome enhancement of the Conference, offering representatives and members of the public opportunities to share information and ideas, explore topics of special interest and celebrate together. They are not a part of the formal proceedings of the Conference but are hosted by a variety of organisations within and outside the Methodist Church.
