Aber Conference 2021
“Is there going to be an Aber Conference this year?” is a question I have been asked many times over the last few months. This is the time of year we all start planning our summer conference attendance as booking forms normally arrive in our inboxes or on our door mats. Much as we would all love to meet together in the Great Hall of Aberystwyth University this August, the reality is that, even with vaccinations gathering pace, it is very unlikely that large gatherings like ours will be allowed even in late Summer.
Reluctantly, we have concluded that it is not the Lord’s will for us to meet as we usually do, so there will be no residential conference in Aberystwyth University this year. However, there are promising signs that smaller gatherings will be allowed, and we do have our main speaker, Sinclair B. Ferguson, available to preach. So our plan is to bring him to Wales and arrange three preaching meetings during the Aber Week (9th -13th August 2021). These will be live streamed without charge so everyone has an opportunity to be a part of the conference and hear what the Lord is saying to us in Wales now. The size of the congregations will depend on the Welsh Government guidelines at the time, and more details will follow as soon as we have them, so keep checking your emails and the EMW website.
Thank you for your support for the conference over past years and please continue to pray that whatever we are able to organise for this year will glorify God and do us, his people, good.
