In August 1964, nearly one hundred brethren and sisters met for a week-long Bible Conference in Lincoln College, Oxford University. It was from this initial venue that the name ‘The Oxford Conference’ arose and it was kept for many years, even though the venue often changed. More recently it has become ‘The Christadelphian Conference’ but the objectives of the gathering have remained unchanged – to provide an occasion for brethren and sisters to share in worship, prayer and study at a tranquil location, away from the distractions of daily life.
2023 sees the start of a new venue – Moor Hall Conference Centre, Cookham, which is a 19th century Manor House, set within 9 acres of landscaped grounds and can accommodate up to 80 attendees. Because of the small size of the Conference, it has a family atmosphere making it easy to get to know everyone and to “belong”.
The Conference begins at 4pm with a cup of tea in the lounge and and concludes at 1pm Saturday after a Breaking of Bread or Devotional followed by lunch.
