Perennial Truths in a Time of Change


Thornycroft Conferences seek to support Catholic Faith and culture across the north of England, exploring how they can have a practical impact in the heart of civil society. 

The formal proceedings of each conference are followed by a sit down, served meal which provides an informal opportunity to meet and talk to conference participants and to continue discussion of the subject of the conference.
