Prayer is central to the conference and we encourage attendees to come together to pray through the number of meetings every day.
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.
- Taketime (Younger adults) Taketime 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.
- Primetime (Older adults) Primetime takes a similar format to TimeOut , but is more reflective and aimed at those who are older.
The Mission Exhibition
We are pleased to host a Mission Exhibition again this year as it’s an important and valued part of the conference. Our desire is to bring awareness of the needs of various missions at home and worldwide, and to stimulate a concern for mission. During the conference we encourage all to visit the Mission Exhibition. Details of the Exhibition, along with a list of organisations involved, will be included in a conference guide which will be distributed to all attendees.
