Keswick Convention starts Sunday

This year’s speaker for the Keswick Convention is a man who has worked in Mongolia, Australia and Pakistan. Rev. Stephen Gaukroger will be in Cayman to speak at meetings that start on Sunday night and continue through Friday, 22 January.

This year’s speaker is the former senior minister of Gold Hill Baptist Church near London, one of the largest Baptist Churches in England, where he pastored for 12 years. Before that, he worked for a year with the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, and has also served as senior pastor with Stopsley Baptist Church, near London.

Rev. Gaukroger is the founder-director of Clarion Trust International. He has written more than 20 books and numerous articles during 26 years of pastoral ministry.

He will be speaking at the Church of God Chapel on Walkers Road for evening meetings and Elmslie Memorial Church Hall in down town George Town for lunch.

Evening services begin at 7.30pm and will be broadcast live by Radio Cayman. Organisers said child care will be available at the evening services for infants and children up to age 8.

For the daytime sessions, a light lunch will be available from noon, and Rev. Gaukroger will speak between 12.20 and 12.50.

Organisers of the Keswick Convention invite everyone to attend the inter-church event. They say it has become one of the premier opportunities to unite for worship, fellowship and to benefit from the teaching ministry of contemporary Christian preachers who are known for their gift of explaining the Bible.

Cayman Keswick takes its name from the original Keswick Convention, which has been held for over 130 years in the English town of Keswick.
