Annual DAC Conference, Salisbury, 2018

Tuesday 25 - Thursday 27 September 2018 (Salisbury)

The Diocese of Salisbury hosted the DAC Conference in 2018, sharing with us their diocesan vision 'Renewing Hope'. The full conference programme is still available. Highlights included welcoming Loretta Mingella, The First Church Estate Commissioner as the after-dinner speaker on Wednesday evening. Wednesday afternoon also provided the first joint sessions with the Diocesan Environmental Officers who explored renewing hope in the environment.

Visits included the church of St Thomas, Salisbury, which was a national focus for renewed hope earlier in 2018.
