This year's ICS Chaplains and Families' Conference took place in Drongen, Belgium. Chaplains, outreach workers, interns and families gathered to enjoy teaching and fellowship time together.

Drongen’s location, a short train journey from Ghent and Bruges, gave great opportunities for exploring during a free afternoon. The grounds provided a wonderful opportunity for peaceful reflection and a walk by the river while catching up with friends and colleagues.

The Revd Dr Richard Briggs of Cranmer Hall, Durham taught on the Psalms, Jill Garrett gave talks on 'Leadership' and workshops gave time to dig deeper into various themes during the week.

This year’s conference was blessed with several families, enriching our children’s group with toddlers to teenagers. The exciting children's program was a great success. One highlight of the week was seeing the children share what they had learnt and pray for their friends.

Do have a look on our Facebook page for updates from the week, July’s issue of ICS News will feature an article about the conference and recordings of the talks will be available soon.
