College Conference

College Conference is both the name given to the association of former students of the College and an actual day conference which is held each year on the second Thursday in June.

College Conference takes place this year on Thursday 8th June 2017.

This year the theme is :

Ordinary Saints: A celebration of everyday lives

 In a society where the cult of celebrity undermines the value of the ordinary, and arguably seeps into the church, this conference will look at various aspects of what it means to live out lives  which may never make the headlines, but are of incredible value in the hands of an extraordinary God

The incoming President, Jeannie Kendall, will lead with conributions and personal reflections from former Spurgeon's students.
