Join us for Connect Conference 2023

Join Connect Volunteers and Project Leaders from across the UK to celebrate what God is doing through Operation Christmas Child! Through dynamic Bible teaching and powerful testimonies, you’ll discover how God is using your prayers and involvement to send the Gospel to the ends of the earth and build His Kingdom.

We are delighted that we will be joined by guest speaker Tiana Morel. Tiana is the Operation Christmas Child Regional Manager for Southern Africa and will be sharing about the impact of shoebox gifts and The Greatest Journey in this region.

Whether this was your first year packing shoeboxes, or you have volunteered for over 20 years, we warmly invite you to join us to hear about the amazing impact each shoebox has in the lives of children across the world. You will be inspired, energised and equipped to share Operation Christmas Child and the heart of the ministry with those in your community.

Our Connect Conference will be a fantastic opportunity to physically meet together and to forge and rekindle friendships with other volunteers and supporters from across the UK. There will be plenty of fun activities as we celebrate together and share lots of inspiring stories. With equipping sessions available for every role that is played within our family of Operation Christmas Child volunteers, there is something for everyone.  

To make our conference as accessible as possible we have trimmed back the programme to run from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening. We’re being hosted by our friends at All Nations Church Cardiff, so those of us who want to make a full weekend of it can also join their 10.30am Sunday service.   

Everyone is welcome, so why not invite your friends, family, church or group leader to come along too?
