2017 KESWICK-IN-MOTHERWELL UPDATE
June already! Hard to believe how fast the year is going and so although it’s about three month’s until this year’s Keswick-in-Motherwell, no doubt it will be upon us before we know it.
Hopefully you are planning to be with us this year on Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September. We have a great programme lined up and we’re delighted to be having two excellent speakers with us: Paul Mallard, who will speak at each of the evening celebrations and David Gibb who will conduct two seminars on Friday and Saturday mornings.
Paul Mallard is a much loved and well known speaker at the main Keswick Convention as well as many of the local “Keswicks” throughout this country and also abroad. Since being called to the ministry in 1982, Paul has served as pastor of churches in Chippenham and Worcester. For four years he was part of a pastoral team in a church in Birmingham while being engaged in itinerant ministry throughout the UK. He has recently become the pastor of Widcombe Baptist Church in Bath. Paul is married to Edrie and they have four children and five grandchildren.
Canon David Gibb is pastor of St. Andrew’s Church in Leyland, Lancashire. An excellent Bible teacher who is known for his faithful exposition of God’s Word. A frequent conference speaker both home and abroad and one who has guided St Andrews’s into a thriving church that is a beacon to all in Lancashire and further afield. (Two of those who died in the recent Manchester terrorist attack lived in Leyland, in David’s parish.)
Our desire is that you will find the teaching at Keswick-in-Motherwell to be Spirit-filled, Christ exalting, Word centred and God glorifying so that you will be edified, equipped and transformed by the Spirit. We are confident the ministry of Paul and David will be invaluable in achieving the aforementioned.
The worship at each of the evening celebrations will be led by “Heath Robinson”, a duo who have been with us for the past few years and whose ministry has been greatly appreciated. “Heath Robinson comprise of Harold Heath and Chris Gaskell from the Greater Manchester area.
Each evening we will have special guests joining us, contributing to the overall impact of the celebrations.
DAY TRIP TO 2017 CONVENTION IN KESWICK
Every year we run a bus to the main Convention on Glasgow Fair Monday but this year, since Alistair Begg is so well known, we’ve decided to go on Monday 24th July. The bus leaves Calvary in Motherwell at 7.15am and that get us into Keswick for just after 9am. The main meeting is at 11.15 with Alistair Begg and you have the opportunity to go to the afternoon meeting as well. There is plenty of time to visit Lake Derwentwater or wander around the shops in this quaint and beautiful Lakeland town. We leave again around 6pm. Full details will be available in due course but it is advisable if you’re planning to come, to book as soon as possible. The return bus fare is £16. You can book by email or by phone.
