Faith in the Second Half

May 9 2023 | 3:00 pm - May 11 2023 | 2:00 pm

The Church: for me, you and everyone

Keswick Ministries and Faith in Later Life are partnering together again in 2023 to bring you a conference about faith in the second half of life.

Focusing on what it means to be church, we will have a range of talks and seminars that will help you. God’s design is that the church is open to all, but often we forget that. This conference will enable you to get started or to continue on that journey.

Taking part in the beautiful Keswick countryside, leading thinkers, speakers and practitioners will bring teaching and insight into a variety aspects of later life from death and dementia to creating opportunities for older and young people to come together.

This conference is for you; whether you are firmly in later life, have retired recently, or are reflecting on what life looks like now your children have left home.

Our passion is to inspire, equip and empower those in the second half of life to live for Christ.

“This is such an informative, helpful and encouraging resource for any Christian who is “getting on in years” and for any Christian who seeks to serve people who are finding their ageing a burden.”

– 2022 Delegate
