For thousands of years God’s Word has radically impacted lives, communities and even societies.

In 2017 we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, when Martin Luther asserted that his conscience was ‘captive’ to that Word. At Keswick 2017 we’ll see how this powerful Word brings life, reveals Christ and motivates mission. By God’s Spirit it will captivate our hearts and minds, and transform our lives, families and churches.

All three weeks have at their heart the theme of Captivated: Hearing God’s Word. In hearing the written word, we meet the living word, Jesus Christ.

In week 2, we are thrilled to be able to welcome Alistair Begg back to Keswick for Bible Readings on the Psalms. In the evening celebrations, we have a series on Luke’s gospel, Encountering the Living Word, Jesus Christ. We’re very glad that Jim Turrent and Steve Midgley can join us, and that Martin Salter, who helps lead our Youth Work, will also be speaking. In the afternoon, for the Word@2:30, we will be looking at the reformations of Hezekiah and Josiah at the end of 2 Chronicles.

Our morning seminars give varied opportunities to earth the Word in our lives in different ways. Steve Midgley will helps us think and act biblically as we face pastoral issues; Paul Keeys will Walk us Through the Bible; Pete Williams will tackle four of the thorniest moral objections to the Scriptures; Tricia Marnham will help us to feed on the Word personally and in the home; Clare Heath-Whyte will look at two great examples from history of godly women. And we’ll also have the chance to have our eyes opened so we can see and join with those looking to make God’s word known to, in and from the UK.
