Us Annual Conference 2013: Brave Steps

Us Annual Conference 2013:
Brave Steps

Monday 24 – Wednesday 26 June 2013

Venue: High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Herts
You are invited to attend our annual conference, which will be the first since we changed our name from USPG to Us, in November last year.

Starts 4pm on Monday 24 June; ends lunchtime on Wednesday 26. Or come for our special Day Conference on Tuesday 25 June.
This year’s conference is a chance to meet people whose lives have been changed through an encounter with Us, with workshops, activities and ideas to take back to your parish.

The conference is ‘Brave Steps’. In 2 Cor 5, Paul says ‘for we walk by faith, not by sight’. At conference we will be looking at the challenges and the blessings that come from walking by faith. We will hear first-hand how our partners are stepping forward into the fullness of life that Jesus promises us.


  • Cost for three-day conference (24–26 June, teatime Monday 24 to lunchtime Wednesday 26) is £140 (not sharing), £70 (sharing)
  • Cost for Tuesday Day Conference is £25 (includes lunch)
  • FREE for those in training for ordained ministry

Guest speakers

  • Floyd P Llawet, Provincial Secretary of the Episcopal Church of the Philippines (ECP): Floyd was formerly the head of ECP's development office and will share experiences from his church's staunch commitment to human rights and social justice.
  • The Revd Fedis Nyagah, Church and Community Mobilisation Process Facilitator, working throughout Africa and with Us in Zimbabwe: Fedis is spearheading a faith-based approach to community empowerment that radically challenges the idea that poor people need to be dependent on aid to end poverty.
