This year’s Keswick Convention has got off to a strong start, according to Operations manager Simon Overend. 'We are greatly encouraged by the numbers attending and the positive spirit of all - despite the weather. Over two and a half thousand people have been attending the morning Bible Readings and Evening Celebrations, in the main Convention Tent at Skiddaw Street.
The live relay of the morning meetings to the Earthworks marquee at the Rawnsley site, introduced this year, has worked well and been welcomed by those making us of this facility.'
Evenings in Costa
This is the third year that Costa has thrown open its doors in the evening to some of the young adults, aged between 19-24, attending the Convention for the Abide track, and around one hundred have gathered there each evening. Chris Slater, who heads up this track, said it was ‘Great to see young people excited about their faith and getting into God’s word.’
With the schools in England still finishing off their terms, most of the children and young people attending the event are drawn from Scotland and Northern Ireland, and they too have been enjoying the Convention.
Warm Welcome from the Town
On the opening night, Roger Purkiss welcomed conventioners, encouraging them to visit the town’s attractions and shops. Other local dignatories attended, together with local clergy.
Keswick on the Radio
BBC Radio 4 are recording one of the evening Celebrations this week, and it will be broadcast on Sunday morning at 8am.
