Strengthening the church
and making disciples in the COVID 'new normal'
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural conference when 220 people joined from all over the UK for an unforgettable weekend we are excited to introduce our 2021 Conference.
The current turn of events with the pandemic has created a lot of extra work and pressure for churches and leaders especially.
Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to delay this year's Connect Conference until Friday 25th June when hopefully things will be more settled, and churches will be more able to focus on the next season ahead and relish participating in the conference.
We recognise that this will be disappointing news to some but the last thing we wanted to do is to pile extra pressure on already exhausted church leaders and members.
The conference will be held via Zoom over Friday afternoon and evening.
In the meanwhile, if you have questions or would like support from the Counties team at this difficult time for everyone, do feel free to email or call us.
We would be honoured to support you in whatever way would help you best as we work together to make Jesus known across the UK.
Yours in Christ

Main Guest Speakers
Global Training and Prayer Mobilisation
We are delighted to have Shodankeh Johnson with us during the Connect Conference for our main teaching sessions. He is an inspirational leader and speaker who God has used greatly to impact the nation of Sierra Leone over the last couple of decades.
Shodankeh is the husband of Santa, and father of seven, and is the leader of New Harvest Ministries (NHM) in Sierra Leone. Through God’s favour, and a commitment to Disciple Making Movements, they have seen hundreds of simple churches planted, over 70 schools started, and many other access ministries initiated in Sierra Leone in the last 15 years. This includes churches among 15 Muslim people groups. They have also sent long-term workers to 14 countries in Africa, including 8 countries in the Sahel and Maghreb.
Shodankeh has led training and catalysing prayer and disciple-making movements in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States. He has served as the President of the Evangelical Association of Sierra Leone and the African Director of CityTeam International. He is currently responsible for global training and prayer mobilization for CityTeam International.
