The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites all to participate in this year’s annual general conference, which will take place on April 6 and 7.

This will be the 194th Annual General Conference, a global broadcast held every six months where the church’s leadership speaks to its members.

“All are welcome and invited to hear messages about the hope, peace and eternal life made possible because of Jesus Christ,” the church website states. “General conference provides an opportunity to receive personal revelation as general church leaders give counsel and direction.”

When is April 2024 general conference?

The conference consists of five sessions held over two days. Sessions will be held at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, and at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 7.

Messages focus on a variety of spiritual topics. Speakers are expected to include President Russell M. Nelson, the prophet and leader of the church; his counselors in the First Presidency; members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles; and other general officers and leaders of the church. Music for each session is provided by The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and other invited church choirs, and the congregation is occasionally asked to join in to sing hymns.

All five sessions of the 194th Annual General Conference are open to all individuals and families.
