Morning Bible readings
Join David Jones as he expounds God’s Word from Tuesday to Friday morning.
Evening preaching meetings
Each evening from Monday to Friday, we seek to be refreshed by the Word, as we come together to worship God.
- Monday – James Muldoon
- Tuesday – Sam Allberry
- Wednesday – Bill James
- Thursday – Gary Brady
- Friday – Matt Bownds
We hold two services on Sunday: 10.30 a.m. is a Family Service suitable for all ages; 7 p.m. we meet for an evening service. Monday morning and afternoon are kept relatively free, so if you prefer to worship in your own church, you can travel up on Monday and not miss out.
- Morning – Sammy Davies (Family Service)
- Evening – Trystan Hallam
From Tuesday to Friday, each morning begins with a number of prayer meetings.
From everyday issues to theology to church history, we tackle a range of topics throughout the week. Details will be posted closer to the conference.
Fellowship is vital to our faith, but how can we connect meaningfully with others at a large conference? At Aber, there are four fellowship groups where young people and adults meet to discuss what God has been saying while enjoying one another’s company. There’s even free tea and coffee for everyone.
- EXTRATIME (16–21 YEAR-OLDS) With a full programme of morning and afternoon seminars, plus ExtraTime Late, there’s plenty to feed your mind, heart and soul. And that’s not to mention the quiz night and the BBQ.
- TAKE TIME (YOUNGER ADULTS) Take Time centres around morning seminars and a late evening meeting where there’s plenty of chat and discussion on the issues of the day, and how they affect life at home, work and church.
- TIMEOUT (THOSE AROUND MIDDLE-AGE) Each evening there’s a chance to engage with other Christians about the challenges of work or family life. Special guests will open up these topics for discussion.
- PRIME TIME (OLDER ADULTS)Prime Time takes a similar format to TimeOut , but is more reflective and aimed at those who are older.
Children and families
At Aber, there’s plenty for families with children of all ages, throughout the week. From pre-schoolers to teenagers, there’s tailored meetings and activities, not forgetting the special family ticket. Follow the link for more information.
This year the trip will visit Garth in the morning where we will have access to the church in which John Wesley conducted the wedding of his brother, Charles, to Sarah Gwynne. Sarah’s father, Marmaduke, was the local squire and initially a fierce opponent of the Methodists. However, he was converted under Howell Harris’ preaching and became a great patron of the Methodists! His house, to which many of the Methodists, including the Wesleys and George Whitefield, were invited, is nearby.
After eating our packed lunches in Garth Village Hall we will make our way to nearby Llangamarch Wells which is closely associated with the Welsh Puritan John Penry. He pleaded with the government in Elizabeth I’s time to cater for the spiritual needs of Wales but was martyred at the tender age of 30. We’ll see the plaque set up in his memory and I will speak in the parish church on his life and significance for us.
The History trip costs £20 per adult or £10 per child under 16, and place on Monday.
