The church network will hold two national summer conferences at its Shepton Mallet site next year, but hasn’t precluded the possibility of resurrecting the conference in the North East of England. ‘We’re seeing this not as a final end to the northern event, but a temporary break,’ New Wine north and east regional leader Ian Parkinson told Christianity. ‘A lot of the distinctive things we’ve been doing in the north will be integrated into the national events next summer.’ Numbers at the Newark conference have dropped from 7,000 two years ago to 6,800 this year, according to Parkinson, who says the Shepton Mallet conference is made more affordable by sharing production costs with Soul Survivor. CLAN Gathering, the New Wine conference in Scotland, was also cancelled this year. However, Soul Survivor attendance figures have remained strong and Momentum had its largest eventfor the 20s and 30s age group this year, with 6,600 delegates.
