Virtual Keswick


(Watch recordings from the Keswick Convention)

Monday 23rd – Friday 27th JULY 2018

You may never have been to Keswick in the Lake District but every year the Keswick Bible Convention takes place during three weeks in July and August.

As not everyone has the opportunity to attend, we are holding (as we did last year) a ‘Virtual Keswick’ in Top Chapel. The speaker will be recorded each day and in the evenings we will host whoever wishes to attend (tea and coffee available) and watch the videos. If you haven’t been before you’ll be warmly welcomed. In fact, you’ll be warmly welcomed even if you have been before!

This year, the Speaker we’ll be listening to is Chris Wright, the International Ministries Director of Langham Partnership (All Souls, London).

A collection will be taken each night for the work of Keswick Ministries.

The general theme of the Convention this year is ‘SENT’  (Serving God’s Mission).


We had a brilliant time at Charlesworth Carnival on Saturday 14th July. This year’s theme was ‘Jesus the Good Shepherd’. Our float was complete with live lambs that drew a lot of attention from the people lining the route. We shared a stall with Farming Christian Link. Our chapel supports this organisation and some of our members are involved in its work across the carnivals and county festivals and shows. The Gideons (who are renowned for gifting Bibles to all sorts of organisations, hotels, hospitals and so on) designed a special cover for the New Testaments specifically for their work alongside Farming Christian Link. More than 80 New Testaments were accepted by the lovely people attending the Carnival.

Here are some photos of our float:

Hi Just to let you know that the 10.30 am Service tomorrow will be held at the Junior site of Charlesworth School on Town Lane instead of the chapel, due to snow drifts. Click on the Facebook square on the Home Page for photos!

Keep taking care.



We hope you’re enjoying the snow in Charlesworth and Chisworth and the local area… but let us know if there’s anything we can do to help by phoning the Church Office.
