Feedback and Comments

Everyone enjoyed the weekend:

  • All sessions were appreciated
  • A date of 21 February – 24 February 2020 was suggested
  • The Willow room was preferred
  • The balance between Sessions and free time was about right
  • Compline should be at 21:30 and and Morning Prayer at 07:30
  • For the Conference in 2020:
    • A spiritual stream about the holy Spirit was proposed
    • From the New Testament the dynamic of the Spirit’s testimony
    • For Greek it was suggested that we revisit old uncompleted work
