Leaders are at the heart of our vision to see local churches changing nations. Leaders in ministry, in the workplace and in the community. Leaders who have a passion to see our communities and our culture renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Leaders who want to be part of something bigger. 

Holding our Leadership Conference at four locations across England allows us to better enable leaders to build the Kingdom of God together under a common regional identity within their local community. We encourage you and your teams to book on and join us for what promises to be a significant week in the life of the New Wine family. Together we will encounter God for ourselves, be challenged by both God’s word and impactful leadership principles, and spend time together with our teams and other leaders. 

Advance Information for delegates can be found here.
