We are aware that our conference plans may change. Please book knowing that if we do have to cancel we will automatically send you your refund, and if we have to limit the amount of attendees we will do so on a first-booked first-served basis.
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.’

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.
