Dear Friends,

As you might be aware, we have been engaging with members of the town of Keswick on concerns raised around the dates of the Convention 2018. Over the last weeks we have worked together with the mayor of Keswick, town councillors and the KTA on finding a solution to the issues raised.

We have listened carefully to concerns raised and we have also surveyed families who attend. On the basis of this, we have now decided to change the dates. The Convention will now run from 14th July to 3rd August 2018.

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly or easily. Much prayer and reflection has gone into it. We want to be a good witness to the local community as well as look after our supporters. Striking this balance can, at times, prove difficult. We are aware that the decision will impact those of you who have already made plans with the original dates for the Convention in mind. We sincerely apologise for this and ask for your patience and understanding. We would really appreciate it, if possible, if you would be willing to come a week earlier, sticking to the same Convention week number. This would make it easier for those planning to come in the original week 3 to find accommodation. Please find our press release enclosed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have been praying for us and value your continued support.

Please note that we shall be glad to assist you with any questions you might have. Please feel free to contact us either by telephone at the office or via email at:

Note about speakers, We are still finalising details for the speakers. We are expecting Christopher Ash, Chris Wright and David Cook as our main bible readers, but cannot confirm in which week they will leading the morning bible readings.

Once again, thank you for your understanding in this matter. You can find further information on our website.

Every blessing,

James Robson Ministry Director
