Keswick Convention alive, well

The inter-church Keswick Convention is up and running in Grand Cayman now.

This year’s speaker is the Rev Alistair Begg. He has been pastor for 22 years at Parkside Church in suburban Cleveland. He has also served at churches in his native Scotland for eight years, notably at Charlotte Chapel Edinburgh.

Mr. Begg is an international convention speaker and is known for his ministry of evangelism and bible teaching. He was at keynote speaker at the 2004 Keswick convention in England and has been a frequent speaker at other Bible conferences and major Christian events in North America and the UK. His teaching is heard daily in the United States on the Radio program ‘Truth for life’ which is one of, if not the, most popular program of its type. The ‘Truth for Life’ ministry is available online at http://www.truthforlife.

He has written a number of books all available through Moody publishers.

You can take a Scot out of Scotland but you cannot take Scotland out of a Scot. Alistair is Scottish to the core. He was born in Glasgow in 1952 to Christian parents who were instrumental in his coming to faith in Christ. At the end of high school, he will tell, his sights were set on a law degree and an American girl named Susan. Today he has a theology degree and the American girl. They were married following his graduation in 1975 from London Bible College and have three children.

Alistair was recently awarded an honorary doctorate from Cedarville University.

The Cayman Keswick conventions started in 1974 and have been held each year since, meeting in different churches. This year the host church for the evening services, which begin each night, Sunday to Thursday, at 7.30, will be First Baptist Church. Lunch time meetings will again be in the Elmslie Memorial Church Hall. A light lunch will be available from noon, and Alistair is speaking between 12.20 and 12.50.

For those who cannot make it to the meetings themselves, the meetings will once again be broadcasting the evenings live on Radio Cayman. The lunch time messages can also be heard on Heaven 97 at 2.30 each afternoon.

Keswick Week provides a good opportunity for members of the islands’ churches and others to come together and to hear an excellent, dynamic speaker with a special gift in explaining the Christian faith. The invitation is thus extended to everyone.
