Aber Conference 2024

From the children’s groups during the morning Bible Readings to the afternoon activities – there’s plenty for all the family right throughout the day!

Morning Children’s Groups (held during the service)

Tiny Tots (6 months to 4 years) – Our team of happy helpers are looking forward to welcoming your little ones. They will be playing, singing, painting, and have a well-earned drink and biscuit ‘pitstop’ before you collect them.

Mini Marvels (4 to 7 years)- This group is sure to be exciting with the aim to present the wonder of being a friend of Jesus through Bible truth, energetic songs, wacky games and creative crafts. There will be plenty of prizes to be won and friends to be made!

Holiday Heroes (7 to 11 years) – Your child will love Holiday Heroes. Whether it’s their first time or they’ve been coming for several years there will be new friends to be made, and they’ll get to know more about the Bible with fun activities, cool games and quizzes. .

JAber (11 to 15 years)  – JAber challenges you to get stuck into God’s Word and find out what it really means to live for Him. Our leaders will help you do this with awesome Bible teaching, small group discussions and thrilling challenges.

If you prefer, children are welcome to attend the conference meetings with you, and if you want space for younger children to roam then the overflow has a video relay for all the meetings in the Great Hall. Live audio and video from all the meetings in the Great Hall will also be streamed at (WiFi is free for guests in University accommodation).

What else is happening?

Our family activities are organised by James & Martha Sercombe. Full details will be available closer to the conference, but here’s a taster of what to expect this year:

  • Family Service (Sunday),
  • Family picnic (Monday),
  • Family Games afternoon (Wednesday),
  • After hours for young people (Tuesday – Thursday)
  • Family Thanksgiving Service (Friday)
