The dates for Keswick Convention 2020 have been confirmed as:

  • Week 1: 11 - 17 July
  • Week 2: 18 - 24 July
  • Week 3: 25 - 31 July

The theme being worked on for the 2020 Convention is around the idea of gratitude - and plans are already being made for the three-week event next Summer.

In addition, the 2020 Convention’s main marquee will, pending planning permission, be on the charity’s Pencil Factory site for the first time.We purchased the old Derwent pencil factory site in 2015 with a view to holding its main event, the Keswick Convention, on one, integrated site.

David Sawday, of Keswick Ministries, said: “While we are in the midst of organising the 2019 Convention, some elements of our plans are already under way for 2020. We’re all very excited to be working on the various aspects of bringing together different programme elements of this historic event in one place, where children and adults can celebrate their faith together.”

However, for Christians, gratefulness is a key to our daily walk with Christ. So, we’d like to encourage Conventioners through a biblical outlook on their circumstances to give thanks to God for his love and provision whatever their situation. 2020 will be the 145th year of the Convention, an event which has blessed hundreds of thousands of Christians over the years. That alone, is reason to give thanks.”

More details will be revealed in coming months.
