2017 Family Conference



See below for registration details and deadlines!

We invite you to join us for the 17th annual Reformed Baptist Family Conference (sponsored by Berean Bible Church and Samford Baptist Church). It promises to be a weekend of spiritual blessing, through the preaching of God’s Word and fellowship of God’s people. We look forward to having among us Pastor Rob Harrod and Pastor Andrew Harrison to preach on the theme, ‘Reformation – In Scripture, In History and In Your Life’.
Classes and activities for children (4-12yrs) will run during the morning sessions on Saturday and a crèche (0-3yrs) will operate during each session. A variety of quality Christian books will be available to purchase.

The Reformation in the 16th century is one of the most significant events in church history. William Cunningham described it as “the greatest event, or series of events” since the New Testament. The professing church had been increasingly straying from the biblical pattern for a thousand years! Many at the time felt that true Christianity had disappeared and despaired of any possibility of a real return to the Scriptures. Then God stepped in!
Join with us in this 500th anniversary year to rehearse and rejoice in the great things that God did at that time, and to learn the many significant ongoing lessons for God-honouring discipleship, biblical church life, healthy doctrine and selfless mission for God’s people today and in every generation.
