Dear Deacons,

Last year we had to postpone our deacons’ national conference because of the pandemic.  When we rebooked it for this year, we never dreamed that we would still be in the grip of the pandemic, and still unable to meet face to face.  So we have had to cancel the face-to-face conference:  but undeterred, we deacons powered through and  we can bring you really good news!

First, if you’ve booked, full refunds will automatically be made to you, and should appear in your account over the next few days.

The best news is that our conference will now take place online on Zoom instead, and for half a day rather than a full day.

Same date: Saturday April 17th 2021

Same keynote speaker:  Bishop Martin Seeley

Same inspiration: ‘Towards a flourishing diaconate’

Same start time 9.30am …but different finishing time 12.45pm

…. so shorter journey time: just settle down in your favourite chair and power up your pc/laptop/tablet!

A programme will be posted on Eventbrite once it has been finalised.

The Virtual ‘Deacons on the Move 2021’ event will be held on zoom and will be free of charge.

HOWEVER you must register for this event via Eventbrite to book your place and receive the zoom link. Please go to to register.

We very much hope you will be able to join us on Saturday April 17th via Zoom, and we look forward to meeting up in person in the not-too-distant future, once it is safe for everyone to do so.

In the meantime, if you have any questions please email the organisers at

Every blessing,

‘VIRTUAL Deacons on the Move 2021’ organising group
