We welcome Chris Wright back to Keswick for Bible Readings on the book of Micah.

In the evening celebrations, we have a series on Paul the Missionary. We’re very glad that Rodgers Atwebembeire (from the Africa Centre for Apologetics Research in Uganda), Graham Daniels (from Christians in Sport), Matthew Skirton (from Operation Mobilisation) and Martin Salter, who helped to lead the youth work, can join us. Our morning seminars give varied opportunities to earth the Word in our lives so we can serve God’s mission. Rodgers Atwebembeire will look at how we can answer those who ask hard questions; Martin Salter will look at ‘mission in action’ in the Bible; Jonathan Lamb and Peter Maiden will help us be prepared for mission; and we have a series on being sent to different areas: Andrew and Joëlle Warren on work; Graham Daniels on sport; Mel Lacy on home. In the Keswick Lecture, Tim Chester asks “Is everything mission?”!

Sundays at Keswick

Please join us for our All Age Service at 10.30am in the Main Tent or visit one of the many local churches to hear one of our Convention speakers.
