The Forge Gathering

Back to events and training

The Forge Gathering from Parenting for Faith is a residential retreat for local children’s, youth and families’ leaders (both paid and voluntary) hosted by the Parenting for Faith team.


What is The Forge Gathering for?

The goals of The Forge and are to provide time to:

  • worship and reflect
  • hear about new developments in children’s, youth and families work
  • learn from each other
  • have fun together!

It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet others working in the same field as you, and you’ll leave with loads of contacts and some great new friends.

When is it?

We will have two Forge gatherings in 2024.

Forge West is 17 – 19 April at Hebron Hall in Wales.

Forge East is 12 – 14 November at Letton Hall in Norfolk.

What does it cost?

£200 (earlybird price) or £225 which covers everything including food, accommodation and activities.

Places are limited and will be first come, first served.

How can I book?
