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.
Richard is one of the founders of GBS Comms, a leading communications consultancy, and has been running these workshops for more than ten years at Oak Hill College and other contexts, including Keswick and at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
James has had extensive experience over nearly 20 years, training preachers and leaders, teaching students Old Testament and Hebrew at Oak Hill College and at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford.
Laura is the co-founder of Prisca and serves the wider church as a Bible teacher and preacher, speaking at conferences, evangelistic events, local church theology initiatives, and speaker training.
Sharon is the co-founder of Prisca and works at Langham Preaching on the Europe & Caribbean Team and is also completing further theological study at Union School of Theology.
There are three parts to this workshop and delegates must attend all sessions:
1. A one-hour online Introduction to Resources led by Prisca facilitators on either:

– Tuesday 12thSeptember at 7:30pm – 8:30pm
2. A one-hour online Exegesis session, week beginning 18th September. Delegates will have prepared in advance a passage they are intending to preach on and in pairs they will be given detailed feedback and sharpening of exegesis.
3. A 3-day workshop in Keswick, Tuesday 26 September 9:00am – Thursday 28 September 5:00pm.When delegates arrive in Keswick they will work closely with Richard Garnett who will give instruction and training in all that is necessary to move from accurate exegesis to an engaging sermon, delivered with no notes. The workshop format will be dynamic, interactive and demanding. It brings out and develops everyone’s gifting, rather than giving a formulaic grid.
