Coming to the Conference


The Conference this year will take place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, at the National Exhibition Centre, Pendigo Way, Birmingham B40 1PP.  The nearest railway station is Birmingham International, from where you can get to the Hilton by taxi or on foot, a walk of around 15 minutes.

As well as its 306 representatives and 24 associate members, the Methodist Conference welcomes interested visitors and anyone may attend the open conference sessions, visit the exhibition or attend fringe events. There are very few closed sessions and these are clearly indicated in the agenda.

Visitors do not need a ticket except for the Opening of the Conference on the afternoon of Saturday 24 June and Reception into Full Connexion and Sunday Worship on Sunday 25 June.  You will also need a ticket if you wish to attend one of the Ordination services.

Tickets are free and you will be able to book online on this website from Monday 27 March 2017.
