Edwards for the Church

Per the official website:

Jonathan Edwards For the Church is a conference to encourage the church in the UK.  In a day of confusion, we pray it would be in the hands of Almighty God an instrument for reformation and revival.  The topic for 2016 is one that delighted and animated Jonathan Edwards throughout his fruitful life: the Glory of God.  Come join us; the speakers will have ministers or men training for ministry particularly in mind as they prepare, but all of God’s people are welcome.

A notable feature of the recovery of the Reformed faith in the United Kingdom was God’s use of American theologian Jonathan Edwards in the ministries and lives of the leaders. Thomas Chalmers, Charles Spurgeon, A. W. Pink, John Murray, and D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones all considered the discovery of Edwards’ writings as turning points in their ministries. Indeed, it is at least possible that the qualitative influence of Edwards has been greater here than it has been among the American church. Jonathan Edwards for the Church seeks to promote such usefulness in a new generation.
