Just a reminder that if you take advantage of the Early Bird Discount there is a saving of £15 - simply book by 1st May
Should the conference be cancelled because of Covid-19, then your deposit will be returned. However, as has always been our policy, we strongly advise attendees to make sure that they have full insurance for travel and other eventualities.

I know that I don’t need to remind you of the situation that we all face in the UK at this time. The word ‘unprecedented’ is now very familiar to us all, but it is actually true, and as I commented to a colleague just the other day, it is a salient reminder of how fragile life actually is. To contemplate that a bat, in a back street market in China can bring nations to their knees, would have been unthinkable just a few months ago and yet it has happened. Being brought to our knees is the very best posture to adopt in these circumstances. Let’s continue to pray for those who have contracted the virus, for our wonderful NHS and frontline workers, for friends and family, and indeed for the leadership of our country that is having to make decisions that are good, right and true for us all at this time.
The Book of Chronicles (1 Chronicles 12:32) reminds us of the tribe of Issachar who were wonderfully respected and who had great wisdom. They were sought after by those needing to build strategy and make important decisions. We are told that ‘they understood the times and knew what should be done’. Do pray that Issachar thinking will pervade the hearts and minds of our decision makers and indeed for all of us as we consider our responsibilities at this time.
Our New Home
So this is where Flame is now based : Zoar Methodist Church in Lower Gornal, Dudley. Dave has had links with this fellowship since he was born, and on April 7th 1946, Billy Graham preached here at a Sunday evening ‘rally’.
Jackie is well established as you can see, and Calin helped with moving files and boxes. Dave was absent…maybe attending the classes shown on the posters at the front of the church?!
We are still utilising our PO Box address for mail, and our telephone number and email address are unchanged.
Established in 1992 by Dave Pope (right), Flame Trust is a registered charity with a distinct ethos.
