The ordination of new presbyteral and diaconal ministers has become a highlight of the Conference week.  Having been received into full Connexion at the service of Sunday Worship in the morning, presbyters, deacons, family and friends travel to local places of worship to be ordained. 

Services will take place on the afternoon of Sunday 25 June.  You will be able to apply for tickets from Monday 27 March, when we'll publish an application form on this website.  Tickets are free but are limited to four tickets per applicant for any one Conference service.
