2023 Convention: Human

Join us at Keswick Convention 2023 as we look at the theme of Human.

There will be a packed programme to encourage you in your walk with God and space in the afternoons to appreciate God’s creation and all that Keswick and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Keswick Convention takes place annually, bringing together thousands of like-minded Christians who want to hear God’s Word, become like God’s Son and serve God’s Mission.

We are thankful that through the generosity of our supporters we are able to make the Convention available to all, without the need to charge for any events.

There is no registration or booking needed to attend the adult programme. Registration is required for those attending the Kids and Youth programme. More information will be available in May 2023.

2023 Theme: Human

“What is a human being…?” (Psalm 8:3)

The theme of Keswick Convention 2023 is Human.

On the first page of the Bible, God declares, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). The Convention will explore what it means for humans to be in God’s image, how it is to be lived out, how it is challenged in contemporary debates, and how that sin-marred image is renewed in Christ, fully human and fully God.

But “Human” is not a subject to be discussed and examined at a distance. For one thing, as Calvin famously said, “It is certain that man never achieves a clear knowledge of himself unless he has first looked upon God’s face, and then descends from contemplating Him to scrutinize himself.” So we’ll gaze afresh on the God revealed supremely in Jesus Christ.

But Jesus is also fully human, so we’ll look to him, and delight in him, fully God and fully human.

And we’ll hear afresh the calling that God gives to humanity, to live out his new creation purposes in his world, as his image-bearers.

So, we pray at the 2023 Convention that the Lord will give us a fresh vision of himself, a fresh love for Jesus Christ, and will inspire and equip us with a new sense of vocation, to live as his image-bearers in his world.

Human - Ros Clarke

Made and remade in the image of God

Being human is complicated! Our bodies, intellects and emotions are all God-given gifts, but we so often find them in varying states of disorder. How then, can we become the full bearers of God’s image that we were made to be?

Ros Clarke covers various topics surrounding the 2023 Convention theme of Human. The book will be available to buy from the 10ofthose bookstall at Keswick Convention.

Ros Clarke will be hosting a four-part seminar series during Week 3 of Convention on Being Human.
