The Marketplace

Throughout the Forum there will be a marketplace where various organisations can display information and resources. To request a space at the Marketplace please complete the application form. There is no charge for this. Further information is available from Lorraine Shannon.

Who can take part?

  1. CTE's Bodies in Association, Intermediate Bodies and Member Churches are all eligible for a display table as long as the person responsible has made a residential booking for the Forum for the whole time.

    Different bodies have different links to the Forum booking form and they have received an e-mail from us inviting them to book. If you don’t know who has received the e-mail to your organisation, please contact Lorraine Shannon.

  2. Other organisations which fulfil our display criteria may also apply for a display table. Tables will be allocated at our discretion. Successful applicants will be required to make a full time residential booking. They will be able to participate fully in the Forum.

Marketplace stall-holders participate fully in the Forum.

Display criteria

Organisations apart from those in §1 above must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Christian and in good standing with CTE's Member Churches.
  • Values which resonate with the values of Churches Together in England.
  • Largely national coverage in England.
  • Established track record of working ecumenically.
  • Non-party political.

What must Marketplace stall-holders do?

You must set up your stall on Monday in the Butterley Hall before 4.30 pm. You can gain access from 12.30 pm onwards. (Apologies, we can't offer you lunch.)

When you arrive, your stall will be clearly marked. We shall put those who need an electric socket and, as far as possible, those with display stands or banners along the sides of the hall. The bookshop will be at one end. If you are unsure what you asked for, please complete the application form again, making it very clear that this is a duplicate application, not a new one.

While the Marketplace will run throughout Forum and it would be helpful if you are around to talk to people about your organisation, we also appreciate that you will be participating fully in Forum. However, we do ask that you ensure that your stall is staffed from 1.30 pm to 3.15 pm where there is dedicated time for the Marketplace on the programme.

You can include items for sale on your stall if you wish. It is up to you whether you put an 'honesty' box on the stall or whether you decide to sell only when the stall is staffed. We are not responsible for any items or money which may go missing.

Please do not dismantle your stall until Wednesday. We'd prefer you not to do that before the final session but if you need to leave earlier, it's not very likely that Forum participants will visit the Marketplace on Wednesday after 9.30 am. You can dismantle your stall during or after lunch if you prefer. Please ensure that you take all papers  and anything else home with you unless The Hayes provides a box for recycling paper.

Thank you very much for participating in the Marketplace.
