How Much?

The full conference fee for a Monday–Thursday resident is £225*
We realise that many Ministers are on tight budgets and we do not want people to be unable to attend the conference due to the cost. If you are unable to afford the £225 fee, but could pay between £120 and £225, then please feel free to pay what you are able. In the event that you are not able to afford this, please contact John Rawlinson at the Edinburgh office to apply for financial assistance; we don’t want anyone to be unable to come due to financial constraints.

*(This represents a subsidy of about £45 per person from the Trust. If you are in a position where you are able to pay the unsubsidised cost, we would appreciate that.)
