CRE 2024: Welcome!

CRE 2024 will take place at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes on 9-10 Oct 2024.

Join hundreds of local church leaders, officers and anyone involved in Christian work and ministry, in a day of discovery – of new ideas and resources, specialist advice and inspirational worship and teaching.

More than 150 exhibitors

More than 150 organisations will be waiting to meet you, offering everything from contactless card machines to customised keyboards, heating to seating, clergy clothing to communion wine. CRE provides you with a great context for networking and creative thinking. It really is your one-stop shop for church supplies, resources and ideas.

Talks programme

The exhibition also features a packed talks programme, with dozens of presentations by national experts offering practical advice on a range of subjects – from fundraising to faith-sharing, holiday clubs to homelessness.
