Brigade Conference 2019

The weekend's programme will take place at the Marriott Hotel in Swansea, a waterfront location just steps from the marina and ideally placed to explore the city. Find out more about the conference venue at

The weekend will feature a packed programme with workshops, worship, opportunities for fellowship, as well as the AGM. The Hotel has good transport connections by road with the M4 motorway close-by, direct trains from London Paddington and is 45 minutes from Cardiff Airport with flights in and out of Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin.

The conference is open to all leaders in the UK and ROI, and we would particularly encourage as many young leaders from across the Brigade family to attend.
