Our guest preacher for this year’s Harvest Service was Reverend Dafydd Taylor of Zion Free Church, Pembroke Dock. He preached on Psalm 67, speaking of our Gracious, Great and Giving God. We were reminded that we are blessed abundantly, we should count our blessings and also be a blessing to others. It was lovely to have fellowship with members from local churches and churches from further afield, including Cosheston, Bethesda Tenby Road, Clarbeston Road, Hill Park, Calvary Haverfordwest and Emmanuel Newport.
A warm welcome extended to all
It’s been a busy, blessed week at the Evangelical Movement of Wales (EMW) Aberystwyth Conference.
The two primary speakers were David Meredith and Paul David Tripp.
Every morning there were opportunities to attend prayer meetings. We chose to attend the 8.15 prayer meeting led by Rev. Chris Rees, Bethesda Chapel, Narbeth. These meetings were a great opportunity to meet others and pray for the conference, it was a very blessed hour and a great way to focus our mind on God.
Monday evenings sermon was preached by Phil Hill, a Pastoral Theologian at WEST, who attends Ebenezer Baptist Church in Swansea.
All week, the morning sermons were led by David Meredith with readings taken from Joshua. David has been the minister of Smithton-Culloden Free Church in Inverness for over 30 years.
Tuesday – Thursday Paul David Tripp spoke on Grace. He has also written many books about Christian living which are distributed worldwide. David is the President of Paul Tripp Ministries and a Professor of Pastoral Life and Care at Redeemer Seminary, in Dalas,Texas.
Friday evenings sermon was given by Paul Gambston, who has been the minister of South Craven Evangelical Church in Crosshills, North Yourkshire, since 2010.
Ian once again led the Jaber young people’s activities helped by Megan and Jeremy. During these sessions there was the opportunity for group discussions with young people, to discuss the true meaning of becoming a Christian.

This evening was the first service in celebrating our 193rd Chapel Anniversary services, this weekend. We had an inspiring message from Reverend Chris Rees of Narberth tonight, based on Joshua 10 verse 14. A reminder that God is always on our side no matter what adversity we face as born again Christians. With God, we can overcome all difficulties and challenges as He is for us and continues to look after us as His children.
Great fellowship with many friends from local churches, including Bethany Clarbeston Road, Calvary, Cosheston, Bethesda Tenby Road and Hill Park. We were blessed through this fellowship together and thoroughly enjoyed worshiping together. Hymns this evening included: ‘King of Kings majesty’, ‘What a wonderful change’, ‘I stand amazed’ and a favourite of many ‘And Can it Be’.
