UK Mum Heart Conference - Edinburgh

  • Carrubbers Christian Centre (map)


Sally Clarkson has faithfully championed the mission and ministry of biblical motherhood for over two decades. You will be inspired, encouraged, and renewed by her talks. The UK Mum Heart Conference is a personal time of heartfelt messages, rich fellowship, worship, a luncheon together and more. This conference promises to deliver the opportunity to hear Jesus' message of grace and hope to women and mothers and can transform your life.

From working on college campuses, to sharing the Gospel behind the Iron Curtain as a missionary, traveling around the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia to speak on discipleship, Sally Clarkson has tenaciously sought after God's kingdom, and has used her ministry to encourage others to do the same. From her best-selling books such as Own Your LifeThe Lifegiving Home, Different co-authored with son Nathan, and her latest release The Lifegiving Table, Sally has shared from her heart and home about the value of motherhood and the potential for home to cultivate life, love, and faith.

Registration Restrictions

Mobility: Carrubbers Christian Centre is an old building dating back to 1883. The building is laid out over 5 floors and we have no lift access and no chair or platform lifts, consequently there is no suitable access for wheelchair users for this conference. There are 2 small steps into the church foyer, and then 7 steps into the main auditorium. The toilets are on the lower ground floor which is 20 steps down from the church foyer. The luncheon will be served in the Oak Hall on the floor above the main auditorium and this is accessed by a staircase with 23 shallow steps and has a small landing half way up. If you have any questions regarding access please contact the organisers.

ChildrenWe are not able to provide a Creche or Children’s programme for this event. We welcome nursing infants (babes in arms) in the main church for the conference. However we ask that mobile (crawling, toddling) children are not brought to the conference for safety reasons, for courtesy to the other guests and so that you are fully able to engage in the event and be refreshed.

Nursing Mothers: Mothers with nursing infants are welcome and we will provide reserved seating with more space for Nursing Mothers in the church auditorium, or a quieter area upstairs in the Oak Hall with a live audio feed should you need either of these facilities.

DaughtersDaughters are always welcome. However, the recommended minimum registration age is 14. Because there will be discussions throughout the day, please be sensitive to the maturity of your child around other adults if you wish to register a daughter.






We are so looking forward to having you with us and look forward to seeing you there!
