Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference

In a time of constantly moving goal-posts, pastoral uncertainty and doctrinal shifts, it is vital for us to know who and what we are truly committed to in our ministry. This year’s JAEC will focus on our commitments to Christ, to his truth and his people, and in that context, our commitment to the Church of England.

The seminars are designed to help us consider more of the practical implications of these issues:
• Oaths and ordinations
• Selection and training
• Ministry and marriage
• Women in the church
• Sabbaths and sabbaticals

JAEC 2024 will take place from 27th to 29th August at High Leigh Conference Centre.

A slight change to the programme on the first day of the conference will give us opportunity to consider the current situation in the Church of England as it affects delegates at different stages of training, selection and ministry. GETTING THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM will be a time to air your concerns and questions, so that we ensure the rest of the conference is used most effectively for those who are there, as well as clearly outlining the parameters of the present circumstances, the knowns and the unknowns.

Resources from previous conferences

Established by John Richardson in 2011, Church Society has hosted this conference since 2014. It is specifically for those who are ‘junior’, that is anyone considering ministry in the Church of England, lay or ordained, through training, curacy and the first few years of incumbency or the equivalent. The conference aims to help anyone in that category be more effective as an Anglican Evangelical, making the most of every opportunity to reach the lost for Jesus, build up the church through his word, and send workers into God’s harvest field. JAEC is usually held in the last week of August.
