Preaching Workshop 2023

26th September 2023 - 28th September 2023


This year Keswick Ministries is excited to be partnering with Prisca to bring an intensive preaching workshop for church leaders to build on their skills for sharing sermons.

Those who attend the course will receive in-depth personal training, from exegesis right through to a finished engaging sermon.

There will be a particular focus on communication, looking at how sermons are delivered in an engaging way. There will also be an opportunity to present your sermon to the group.

Prisca is a hub-based movement bringing together preachers, Bible teachers and speakers, to be encouraged, inspired, equipped and developed. To find out more click here.

We settle into habits that we don’t realise we have. It is good to unpick those habits so that we can open up God’s Word and ourselves more effectively.
