Week Three

27th July – 2nd August 2024

Singing in the King’s Choir

Morning Bible Reader: Vaughan Roberts

Catch Up | Keswick Methodist Church
Monday-Friday | 11:30am-12:45pm | Main Tent
  • Monday – The Universal King: Psalm 1-2
Psalms 1 and 2 introduce us to the themes, message, and characters that dominate the whole book. God’s King, the Messiah, will one day rule over all nations, so wise people worship him.
  • Tuesday – The Suffering King: Psalm 13

God’s King experiences suffering and rejection before he receives the fullness of his Kingdom. His honest, trusting Psalms of lament provide models for the prayers of his people as we share in his sufferings.

  • Wednesday – The Absent King: Psalm 74

The Psalms are heart cries of the godly. In a time of exile, when God can feel very distant, the faithful experience real anguish and yet still cling to his promise that one day his King will be enthroned and all will be put right. Does my heart beat like this?

  • Thursday – The Divine King: Psalm 99

In difficult circumstances, we can still praise God, the just and merciful King, who rules over all the earth. So let us lift up our hearts and give thanks to the Lord.

  • Friday – The Coming King: Psalm 132 & 150

Our journey may be hard, but we can be sure that we are on the way home to the heavenly Jerusalem, where God’s King reigns supreme and all is well. So we ‘stagger onward rejoicing.’ Praise the Lord!

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!

For committee members or designated representatives of national and international Keswick Fellowship events to meet together for a time of encouragement and sharing.

Mission Personnel Reception

Tuesday | 3:00-5:00pm | PF 1.01

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. This event is for mission personnel to provide an opportunity to support, chat and connect with others who also serve God around the world.

Families of Mission Personnel Reception

Wednesday | 3:00-5:00pm | PF 1.01

This event is for family members of mission partners living overseas. This is a great opportunity for those whose children, grandchildren, brothers or sisters are living and working overseas to get together and share fellowship, experiences and ideas.

Please register at the convention reception. This event is for family members of mission partners to provide an opportunity to chat and connect with others who have loved ones serving God around the world.

Christians in the Workplace

Wednesday and Thursday | 1:15-2:15pm | PF 1.01

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!

Late Night: Sunday-Thursday | 9:15pm - 10:15pm | PF 1.01

Each evening, after the Evening Celebration, we’ll gather for 19-24s Late Night. Join us for an eclectic mixture of interviews, games, prayer, music, and general fun. A great way to end each day!

Prayer at Convention

Prayer is an important part of the Convention, both in bringing our thanksgiving and requests to God, and supporting those who would appreciate prayer with our team.

Morning Prayer Meetings

Monday-Friday | 8:45-9:15am | Base Camp

Join us each morning for a time of prayer as we bring thanksgiving and prayer requests to our gracious God.

Prayer Room

Monday-Friday | 8:30-10:30am & 13:00-16:00pm | PF G.08

A quiet space to pray throughout the week. Open when Kids & Youth programmes are not taking place.

Prayer Team

Our Prayer Team are available to pray with you after morning and evening meetings in the Main Tent. The Prayer Space is to the right of the stage.
