Come and join us!

DAC Conference 2024

The annual conference for DACs and others working professionally in church building advice and policy is in London, from 10 to 12 September. We shall stay centrally in Bloomsbury and include visits to several churches in the area and City of London. The annual dinner will be Wednesday evening at The Charterhouse, after evensong at St Bartholomew the Great.

We will welcome Simon Thurley, Chair of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to speak on Tuesday afternoon. The conference will have an emphasis on how we consider groups of churches – including learning from the Wren 300 project. We will also have time to visit a church that has moved to net-zero Carbon and reflect on monuments as cultural heritage.

Booking will open soon on Eventbrite.
 

Organ Advisers Conference 2024

The Organ Advisers Conference 2024 will be held in Norwich from 27 to 29 August.  We are looking forward to all the city has to offer, from the splendour of the cathedral and St Peter, Mancroft. Accommodation will be at the Travelodge in Norwich (NR1 1BT), and the Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning sessions will be held at the cathedral nearby. Our visit to ‘instruments of note’ on the Wednesday will take place in St Peter, Mancroft (which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Peter Collins organ) and St Helen, Bishopsgate, amongst others.

Cathedral Training

Cathedral chapters are responsible for the most important collection of historic buildings in the country.
