Brand New Christian Conference Centre Officially Opens

In a service of thanksgiving and dedication led by Bishop Mike Royal of Churches Together in England, Christian Conference Trust has officially opened Highgate House, a high-quality Christian residential centre in rural Northamptonshire.

As the newest member of the Christian Conference Trust family, which also runs well-known High Leigh in Hertfordshire and The Hayes in Derbyshire, Highgate House continues the Trust’s legacy of providing quality facilities for Christian gatherings at great value. Equipped with 16 conferencing spaces, fully catered services and 82 en-suite bedrooms, this new venue is meeting the growing demand from Christian groups for affordable, quality conferencing.

By opening a third centre, the Trust has added 30% more capacity for Christian groups to benefit from residential ministry. Highgate House will welcome over 25,000 Christians each year from groups of all denominations.

Speaking at the dedication service Bishop Mike Royal said:

‘Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain’ (Psalm 127). For over 100 years, Christian Conference Trust has been building houses for believers to come together to worship. Highgate House is a wonderful new space for Christians to be built up in their faith.”

John Heasman, Chief Executive of Christian Conference Trust, spoke of the charity’s delight at becoming custodians of Highgate House.

Today is the culmination of years of searching, planning and praying for an additional venue to cater for the growing demand for high-quality affordable Christian conferencing. We’re here to serve the Church and we pray the opening of Highgate House in the heart of England will benefit thousands of believers in invaluable residential ministry. This stunning country house dates back to the 17th century and it is an honour to be able to dedicate it exclusively for kingdom benefit as stewards.

Churches and Christian organisations are encouraged to contact the Trust through their website to arrange a tour of the new venue or to receive a tailored quotation.
