We are delighted that Rev Susan Myatt will be our Keynote speaker,

Susan holds a number of ministerial roles; Minister at Open Hands Signing Church which is part of Rising Brook, wider outreach for Heart of England Baptist Association (HEBA) and Lichfield Diocese church advisor to the Deaf.
Susan is joining us to help us explore journeying with one another, and embracing diversity within the church. If you wish to know a little bit more about Susan and her ministry you can watch this short video.
