Multiply is our annual conference bringing together everyone with a passion for planting new churches, new church sites, and new disciples of Jesus. The 2019 conference was held in Bedford from 4th-5th October and featured Mike Pilavachi, church planter and senior leader of Soul Survivor Watford, along with Simon Benham, leader of Kerith Community Church, Bracknell, a thriving multi-site church. Martin Tibbert, leader of Woodside Church in Bedford, which meets over two sites, hosted the event as well as speaking at one of the sessions.
