We alone create our religion and our faith

SOF 2019: The Forum

The forums sessions during the conference will each be a mixture of workshops, seminars, and discussion groups. Further details will be published here during the next few months. A complete list and a booking form will be available two weeks before the conference.

Attendees will be able to book places in advance, and, with a choice of at least five in each session, there should be something for everybody. Subjects will be mostly, but not exclusively, on the theme of the conference.

Some workshop and other events are already planned*, but if you have any ideas for either please let us know in the space on the back of your booking form and we will get in touch. Suggesting a subject for a workshop doesn't commit you to running it, but if you haven't run a workshop before and would like to try, there's plenty of help on hand if you need it.
