KESWICK Ministries is launching a five-day online event this summer in place of its annual religious gathering.

Virtually Keswick Convention will instead be held and will feature teaching, sung worship and seminars for children, youth and adults online.

The virtual convention will run between Monday, 27th and Friday, 31st July, and will focus on the theme of hope.

It has been organised following the cancellation of the usual three-week Keswick Convention, due to the current worldwide coronavirus crisis.

James Robson, ministry director for Keswick Ministries, said: “While we can’t be in Keswick this year, we can meet together online. What an encouragement to be part of something bigger. We’re not alone or isolated, but together; all one in Christ Jesus. There will be something for adults, children and youth. It promises to be a great time to meet with God through his word, together.”

The Bible Reader will be Christopher Ash, writer in residence at Tyndale House, Cambridge, whose subject with be Hope in Jesus from the Psalms. Keswick Convention has been running since its formation in 1875.
