This year, our speakers will cover a range of themes that will help us to live practical and biblically-informed Christian lives. Our excursion into the past will lead us to reflect on the life and work of the Puritan minister John Flavel (c.1630–1691), and why we should continue to learn from his ministry in the twenty-first century.

I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. Psalm 57:2

‘The greatness of God is a glorious and unsearchable mystery. “For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great king over all the earth” (Psa. 47:2). The condescension of the most high God to men is also a profound mystery. “Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly” (Psa. 138:6). But when both these meet together, as they do in this Scripture, they make up a matchless mystery. Here we find the most high God performing all things for a poor distressed creature. It is the great support and solace of the saints in all the distresses that befall them here, that there is a wise Spirit sitting in all the wheels of motion, and governing the most eccentric creatures and their most pernicious designs to blessed and happy issues. And, indeed, it were not worth while to live in a world devoid of God and Providence.’

Who attends?

The Conference is intended for young people over the age of 16. It is an opportunity to find out why the Christian’s is the most serious, but also the happiest life, and to have the opportunity of meeting many young people who hold that belief, from churches across the UK and beyond. Every year, many newcomers find a friendly welcome and feel quickly at ease.

What does it cost?

Fri dinner to Sun dinner – £95 (Twin room £55)*
Fri dinner to Mon breakfast – £110 (Twin room £70)*

Those wishing to attend for just one day or part of a day should contact us at the Edinburgh office.

*Attendees wishing to share a twin room should book at the same time as one another. Some rooms will contain a regular bed and a ‘Z’ bed. Please note that there are a limited number of twin rooms, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Where is it located?

Situated in the village of Yarnfield in Staffordshire, and easily accessible from the M6, Yarnfield Park is a purpose-built conference centre and is well-equipped with modern facilities, has an excellent standard of catering, super-fast internet, and an on-site Costa coffee shop. Attendees will also have access to the nearby sports centre.

As in previous years, a fully-stocked Banner book room will be open throughout the conference.


Arrival should not be before 4.30pm on the Friday. If not arriving by 6.25pm, please advise us when booking. Free car parking is available adjacent to the conference venue.

NB. If approaching Yarnfield Park from the south, on leaving the M6 J14 your SatNav may direct you up the A5013/Eccleshall Road. However, the quickest way is to take the A34 north towards Stone and enter Yarnfield Lane at the Wayfarer public house on the left.
