Jude McBean is Children's Pastor at City Church Aberdeen which meets in 7 campus locations around the city.  Their services feature the fun-and-action-packed adventure that is M.A.D. - their 'Making a Difference' children’s ministry!


The price for 'SIGNIFICANT' is £10 for the day.  We regret that we cannot offer part-day pricing.  You are invited to register your intention to come, using the registration form below - but then pay on the day at the door.


The conference is not for children, nor are there any plans to offer facilities for children to be able to attend on the day.

Our aim is to invest solely into the conference delegates, so that they are refreshed, equipped, connected, inspired and energised to go back to their ministry settings and keep on contributing to children the rest of the time!


Please bring a pack lunch with you to the conference.  Tea and coffee will be available from our cafe in the breaks; and bottled water will also be available to buy.
