Jump Conference 2018



The 4th annual Jump Conference is taking place on Saturday April 28th 2018, and we would love to see you there! This is a day for all those involved in raising children in faith, be it as church workers, volunteers, teachers, parents, or in some other way. Our theme this year is ‘God’s Story, Our Story, My Story’ and we will be exploring together how we can bring the Bible to life for our children and help them to understand their place in God’s Kingdom.

Our main speaker this year is acclaimed children’s author and performance storyteller Bob Hartman. Bob has written over sixty books for children, including the hugely popular Lion Storyteller books, the Telling the Bible series and the highly praised picture books The Wolf Who Cried Boy, Dinner in the Lions’ Den and The Three Billy Goats’ Stuff. During the conference this year Bob will be speaking in our main sessions and unpacking our theme for the day, as well as leading a practical storytelling workshop.

In addition to Bob’s workshop, we will have a wide selection of seminars on offer, and we trust that there truly will be something for everyone! We’ll also have a resource area featuring a variety of different organisations, we’ll provide refreshments and lunch during the breaks in the day, and during our main sessions we welcome back Ranan to lead our times of worship. We are so looking forward to what God has in store for us at this year’s conference and we do hope you are able to join us on the day.
