Bala Ministers Conference

Getting our bearings for pastoral ministry

It was so good to be able to meet together last June for our Bala Conference. It was a special time of encouragement, honesty and genuine brotherly love. So probably you are already wondering and looking forward to this June’s conference. You will see here that we have a number of really good sessions lined up and the opportunity to engage with these subjects and have fellowship is a great one. I know the June calendar is getting increasingly busy with conferences for pastors but, for those of us who minster in Wales, and those further afield but who know they will always be welcome, these few days together in Bala are not to be missed.

God bless

Phil Swann (on behalf of the organising team)

The Bala Conference is for pastors, missionaries and evangelists who love Christ and want to see the gospel at work in people’s lives, whether serving full-time or ‘tent-making.’

There are four main types of allocated time in the timetable:

Meetings – these are times when all are together in the main hall. Meetings typically last 90mins and include a devotional time to start, ministry and then a time to reflect, either through prayer or discussion.

Prayer groups – there are two sessions this year. All men choose a group and have a time of sharing, reflecting and praying together.

Prayer meetings – prayer is a vital part of the conference. The prayer meeting gives an opportunity for all to meet together and pray.

Free time and refreshments – these are times of fellowship (and great food). Some activities are also organised e.g., sports, which everyone is welcome to join.
