CMA Envision Conference 2024

In Person

The Barnabas Church Centre, Longden Coleham, Shrewsbury, SY3 7DN

Registration is at 1:00pm on Friday 11th October. The conference will end at 4:00pm on Saturday 12th October.

Via Zoom

Online content will streamed from 1.45pm to 5.15pm on Friday 11th October, and 9.45am to 4:00pm on Saturday 12th October.


We are planning an exciting agenda including an address from CMA's Founder and CEO Heather Keates OBE, and a keynote speech from Bishop Mike Royal, the General Secretary of Churches Together in England. Mike is the former Co-CEO of The Cinnamon Network, helping churches with their community engagement, and former pioneer at award winning education charity Transforming Lives for Good.


This year the agenda will be focussed strongly on the work of Debt Advisers and Money Mentors; those who do the vital work with clients on the front line. There will be stage presentation; break-out groups; and discussion groups looking at the day to day experience of Advisers and Mentors working with clients: the challenges they face in this work, and how we can provide more guidance, support and training for them. 

The CMA Direction of Travel document gives you a heads-up regarding work we are now undertaking at CMA to play our part in enhancing our services to better support Advisers and Mentors. 

We hope you find this renewed focus on the 'coalface' an encouragement.

In Person conference bookings:

Whilst some elements of your booking will be nonrefundable with less than 4 weeks to the conference date, (eg overnight accommodation) we will always try to fill your place and therefore offer you at least a partial refund, however this is not guaranteed. No refunds can be given less than 7 days before the conference as our hotels, caterers and venue have be paid for your place, and they do not offer us a refund to pass onto you.
