Conference of the CDFB – Sat 8th Oct 2022 – Thornbury


For in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

The Main Event

Thornbury Baptist Church, Gillingstool, Thornbury, Bristol. BS35 2EG.

9.45 (for 10am start) to 4.45pm – Saturday 8th October.

Choose two from three main workshops:

  • Louise Ryrie - dance & creative movement - Louise’s workshop will explore separation and the darkness of a life alone, compared with the everlasting light, love and promise of life with God. An energetic, uplifting, soul-searching, praise-filled dance and creative movement workshop with a cool-down taster of Prayerful Pilates.
  • Helen Fletcher – Psalms & Stretches – In this gentle chair-assisted session, we will reflect on being more than conquerors as we combine movement and exercise with meditation on scripture from the Psalms and Romans 8. The session will include opportunity for prayer and contemplation on the Word as well as ministering to our physical bodies.
  • Rosie Smith & Team – Familiar faces in the Sh’ma Kingdom Dancers, founded by CDFB’s good friend Ginnie White, Rosie and her team will be leading us in prophetic worship and dance - Messianic style!

And choose one from four taster workshops:

  • Debby - a gentle prophetic movement workshop exploring shape, pattern and motion in small groups.
  • Paul - adapting the use of flags for the available space, including being seated in a chair or pew. This is a fully inclusive workshop, for which appropriate flags will be provided.
  • Jackie - a prayer-focused workshop utilising arts and crafts while journeying deeper into the theme text.
  • Debbie - this lively jazz style workshop taken from the musical Sister Act is a ‘Joyful Joyful’ celebration that nothing can separate us from the love of God.

Based on the theme bible passage from Romans 8:37-39, the workshops will be aiming to take nuggets from these verses to explore through dance and movement how we can be more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Conference Website

At times in their busy lives, the Lord took His disciples aside for them just to be with Him. Do you long to spend a week dancing to Jesus with others from around the world? With joy and expectation, we invite you to the International Christian Dance Fellowship Conference in Sweden the first week of August, 2022!

"Our hope and prayer is that many would find that times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord as we meet with one another and with Jesus who came to give life with joy and abundance." (Acts 3:20a ESV, John 10:10b The Voice)

The venue is Gullbrannagården, a vacation camping-site and conference facility beautifully located on the south-western coast of Sweden, close to the city of Halmstad. The programme is rich and varied and there will be a special track for children.

Warmly welcome!
