What is Flourish?

Journey together with friends across Yorkshire for an all-age weekend to discover how we can flourish in our faith, as a church for the future, and in being missional communities.
More than a Church Meet-up.
More than a Christian Conference.
More than a Worship Festival.

Part of Yorkshire North & East Methodist District’s vision for how we can fulfill ‘Our Calling’
and grow as Flourishing Missional Communities

What others have said

Blown away by this event. Thank you so much to all the team. Feel I've been fed for quite some time

The teaching was challenging & inspirational and the music & worship were very uplifting. We appreciated the great variety of workshops & worship experiences. We came away excited, encouraged and ready to pass on our experiences to others so that our whole church can truly flourish.

It was wonderful to see music like this live!!

Thank you to all the team behind the scenes for a fantastic weekend. The speakers were very inspiring and I came away with loads of ideas and as well as feeling refreshed in the holy spirit. My two children had a fabulous time

A most wonderful weekend providing much food for thought.

It was a truely refreshing and challenging experience. It was good to share with people of faith from different backgrounds and communities. I found the workshops helpful and imaginative and feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of something bigger.

Flourish 2019

We were just there for the day on Saturday but it was so good. The speakers, the workshops, the music and the fellowship.

Paul Kerensa was really good at Flourish last night. Funny & clever. So glad I was there. Brilliant time so far.

What a fabulous weekend of praise and worship, speakers and performers, with some thought provoking workshops. Plenty to take back to our circuits and churches. Inspiring.

Energising, enabling and simply brilliant from beginning to end! So many uplifting, and challenging, messages - lets get to work!

Everyone was very helpful; it was a very welcoming place to be, lots of folk happy to chat; it felt like family meeting together; the social media engagement before and during helped to raise a sense of expectation, connexion and excitement. Really, really great event!

It was a joy to be with you and have a sense of what the Spirit is doing among you. What a wonderful event – it seemed to have a freedom and togetherness...
