        11.00am Pastor Norman Roe will conduct Ebenezer Chapel morning worship as normal.
Conference goers are welcome to attend and we hope many will avail themselves of the opportunity to join the Lord’s people in worship.

In previous years these gatherings have been a great opportunity for believers in free grace to congregate from different parts of the country and meet like-minded friends. Part of the purpose of hosting the meetings in different venues is to make it more accessible for those who feel reluctant to make that initial journey, however, we hope that as well as new visitors, those who have benefitted from the preaching and fellowship in past years will join together again.
Visitors travelling from distance probably need to consider obtaining accommodation for both Friday and Saturday nights. Ossett town is very close to the M1 and situated between Dewsbury and Wakefield. This means there are plenty of hotels within a few miles of the church. In recent years a number of those attending have used Premier Inn and found them good value. Here are a few possible options:
Premier Inn Wakefield South - M1, Jct39 – tel: 0871 527 9118
Denby Dale Road | Calder Park, Wakefield WF4 3BB
Premier Inn Wakefield City North
Paragon Business Park, Herriot Way, Wakefield WF1 2UJ  – tel: 0871 527 9116
Premier Inn Wakefield Central
Denby Dale Road | Thornes Park, Wakefield WF2 8DY – tel: 0871 527 9114
Holiday Inn Wakefield M1, Jct. 40
Queens Drive, Ossett, Wakefield WF5 – tel: 0871 423 4876
BEST WESTERN Hotel St Pierre
733 Barnsley Road | Newmillerdam, Wakefield WF2 6QG – tel: 0345 025 4358

There are numerous small private hotels and B&Bs in the area, too. Prices begin at around £40 for a double room per night. 
Do consider coming to meet with together and being a part of this year’s event. There is no charge for the conference and meals will be provided. An opportunity will be available for those who are able to help defray costs.
We particularly recommend those attending to take advantage of one of the finest selections of new and secondhand reformed books in the country today. Ossett Christian Bookshop next door to Ebenezer Chapel will be open for browsing & buying on Friday and Saturday of the conference weekend.
