Being People of Peace in the Culture Wars: Tim Farron

In an age of polarisation and ‘culture war’, how can Christians engage politically whilst remaining faithful to the gospel? How do we run a different race – seeking to be loving and curious rather than fearful and hostile? How might our public square be transformed by people of faith living out the fruit of the Spirit? Let’s be encouraged: with God’s help, there is a better way.

Engage, Explore, Relax

We aim to keep afternoons clear during Convention so you can reflect and enjoy all the lake district has to offer. However, there is a concert each week and a few receptions for particular groups on site in the afternoon for those looking for something more.

There is also plenty of time in the afternoons to explore the beautiful surroundings of Keswick and the Lake District.

Visit the Enjoy Keswick Website to browse Food & Drink, Shopping, Outdoor Activities, Museums and more!

This event is for mission personnel who work overseas. Welcome! Come and chat, share, and pray together with other mission personnel, as well as listen to a short talk. A place to share honestly about the trials and joys in a room of people who understand the ebbs and flows, highs and lows all too well.

An opportunity for those working in similar environments to come together and discuss some of the encouragements and challenges you experience as Christians in your sector, as well as bring questions to a panel from the ‘Your Job, God’s Work’ stand.

There is a guide on which day sectors meet, but don’t feel restricted to these times:

Wednesday – Public Sector (healthcare,
education, social care, law enforcement, local council)

Thursday – Private Sector (trades, cleaning, agriculture, hospitality, retail, business, IT, the arts…)

Preaching the Word with Monday in Mind (Special Church Leaders Session)

Thursday | 2:30-3:30pm | PF 1.01

One of the primary ways that disciples of Jesus are empowered for fruitful living in their everyday contexts is through the preaching of the word. But research suggests that contemporary preaching is much more effective in empowering people for gathered church activities and personal devotion than for engagement in their Monday to Saturday contexts. Come join LICC’s Mark Greene and Sam Brown, and the EA’s Danny Webster, as they share the key lessons and insights gleaned from twenty years of working with hundreds of pastors to equip God’s people ‘for every good work’ through the word.

19-24s at Keswick

In light of our convention theme Resurrection, we’ll be exploring what difference Christ’s resurrection makes to our lives now, and into eternity. Each morning we’ll be meeting for our seminar track to get stuck into this topic.

Morning Gathering: Monday-Friday | 9.30am - 11am | PF 1.01

Monday – Assurance

We start the week by looking at the importance of the resurrection for our faith – it’s through the resurrection that we are assured of who Jesus is (Lord & God) and what he has done (gained forgiveness, justification and eternal life for us).

Tuesday – Bodies

For clues about what our resurrection bodies will be like we can look to Jesus after the resurrection. Still human, but better. 1 Corinthians 15 helps us to understand that our resurrection bodies are glorious, imperishable and godly, which means that all of the things we struggle with now (sin, decay and dissatisfaction) will be done away with.

Wednesday – Keswick Lecture (Main Tent)

We will join the Keswick Lecture in the Main Tent.

Thursday – Work

Thinking about our bodies being renewed also shapes the way that we think about work. Because Christ was raised, and because we’re raised with him, means that the stuff we do now has worth and value beyond today. Just as what we do to our bodies matters, so does what we do with our bodies. If God is going to renew our bodies and this creation, what makes us think we won’t do the same with our work?

Friday – Mission

The reality of the resurrection is that Jesus has been declared Lord and God, that he is on the throne, he will come to judge the world, and every knee will bow before him. The resurrection of Christ is the prequel to the resurrection of the world, and as people who know what that means, we have the responsibility and privilege of going to get people ready for it.

Afternoon Social: Monday-Friday

Whether you’ve come to Keswick as part of a group, or you’re here on your own, we’d love to help you create community this week! Socials will take place each weekday afternoon – check the Instagram @keswick_19-24s for more info!

The Bible is True!

We will be looking at 1 Corinthians 15:1-2 and 12-17. If we believe that the Bible is true, then we can believe everything written in it. We can believe and trust that Jesus was a real man, who lived a real life, who died a real death and was raised back to life in a real resurrection. 

Jesus’ Resurrection

We will be looking at Jesus’ death and resurrection: what happened, why did it happen, and what does it mean for us?

The Hope We Have!

We will compare Jesus’ resurrection (and therefore our future resurrection) with other resurrection stories in the Bible (Lazarus & Jairus’ daughter).

The Great Commission: Global Mission

While we wait for our resurrection, we are called to live out the mission Jesus gave us (Matthew 28:19-20). We will be looking at ‘famous’ missionaries and global missions.

The Great Commission: Local Mission

We will be looking at examples from the early church as they lived out the great commission locally. We want to encourage and equip our guests with practical ways in which they can live out the great commission in their own communities, families, and churches.

Afternoon Workshop

Tuesday | 2:30-4:00pm | PF G.02
We will be looking at some of the ‘unbelievable’ stories in the Bible through creative means (dance, drama, craft) – if we believe that the Bible is true, then what can we learn from some of these stories?

Count Everyone In Seminar

Thursday | 9:30-10:30am | PF G.02

This seminar is for individuals and churches thinking about responding to adults with learning disabilities. This session will inspire and inform about how mission and ministry for adults with learning disabilities can transform lives and churches.
