sacred-grove-april-2020-conference

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites people around the world to participate in general conference twice a year. In these meetings, the First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and other General Authorities and General Officers of the Church deliver messages of inspiration and guidance.

The conference meetings are as follows:

Saturday, April 4, 2020

  • Saturday Morning Session (10:00 a.m.) for everyone
  • Saturday Afternoon Session (2:00 p.m.) for everyone
  • General Session (6:00 p.m.) for everyone

Sunday, April 5, 2020

  • Sunday Morning Session (10:00 a.m.) for everyone
  • Sunday Afternoon Session (2:00 p.m.) for everyone

Because of the restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus, for this conference, each session will be broadcast from a small auditorium on Temple Square. The First Presidency will preside and conduct those sessions, and only those who have been invited to speak or pray will attend. The music for the conference has been prerecorded.

All sessions will be streamed live on the home page of ChurchofJesusChrist.org. They are also available via the Church satellite system, Latter-day Saints Channel, radio, television, satellite, and other digital channels. See Viewing Times and Options for more details. For specific times, languages, and rebroadcast information, refer to the Church broadcast schedule.
