Norfolk Christian conference centre relaunches

2009: BelseyBridgeHouseA Christian conference in South Norfolk has been renamed and relaunched as part of the well-known Christian Conference Trust (CCT), which already successfully operates two other Christian conference centres.
Belsey Bridge Conference Centre, previously known as St. Gabriel’s Conference Centre, was transferred to CCT from the Community of All Hallows on November 2. All existing bookings are being honoured and the existing staff have transferred with the Centre, ensuring continuity. 

To mark the occasion, a specially commissioned aerial photograph was presented by Michael Page (Chairman of CCT) to Mother Elizabeth (Community of All Hallows).
Belsey Bridge, 12 miles south of Norwich, at Ditchingham, offers residential and day conference facilities for up to 110 delegates. The Centre already boasts catering, a range of meeting rooms that have just been fitted with the latest audio-visual equipment and wireless internet newly installed across the site.
Forty-one bedrooms are en-suite (thirty-five of these being for single persons), with the rest of the bedrooms offering standard accommodation. The centre already offers good facilities at affordable prices and this is something CCT is keen to build upon according to Brian Cupples, General Manager of the Christian Conference Trust.

David Patey, Business Manager of the Community of All Hallows, said: “The Christian Conference Trust is a specialist provider of conference facilities with a strong reputation. We have been in discussion with the Trust over recent months and have benefitted from their help and advice in that time. The Conference Centre has an important regional role in supporting a wide range of church and community activities and I hope and believe that it will go from strength to strength as part of CCT.”

The CCT already runs The Hayes (Swanwick, Derbyshire) and High Leigh (Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire). To find out more about the CCT and the three conference centres, visit
