Our 2022 Conference
Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith (Philippians 1.25)
Following the cancellation of the 2021 Keswick in Devon Conference due to the COVID pandemic, the latest conference was held in Sidmouth from 7-11 March 2022. The theme of our conference was ‘joy’. Our hopes and prayers were to make this conference a source of encouragement and stimulus to all of us as we rise to the challenges and opportunities of a post-pandemic world. Marcus Honeysett and Amy Orr-Ewing were our keynote speakers. Videos of all the main sessions are available below.
Our morning keynote speaker was Marcus Honeysett (left). Marcus spoke from Paul’s letter to the Philippians on the theme of joy. After postgraduate studies in Postmodern Philosophy, Marcus worked for UCCF, including leading the work for the Greater London area. Today he is Director of Living Leadership, which provides training and ongoing pastoral nurture for leaders and spouses. His passion is training preachers and preaching about grace. Marcus is the elder for training and discipleship at Crofton Baptist Church in South London and is married to Ros.
Our evening keynote speaker was Amy Orr-Ewing. Amy was speaking on the theme of mission from the book of Jonah.
Dr Orr-Ewing is an international author, speaker and theologian who addresses the deep questions of our day with meaningful answers found in the Christian faith. She is the author of multiple books including ‘Where is God in All the Suffering?’ and bestselling, ‘Why Trust the Bible?’
Over the last twenty years, Amy has given talks and answered questions about the Christian faith on university campuses around the world. She has also addressed Parliamentarians at the UK Parliament and staffers on Capitol Hill, and at the West Wing of the White House. She regularly responds to invitations to speak in banks, businesses, and consultancy firms as well as churches and conferences. Amy is interested in the intersection of questions of meaning and faith with the marketplace, education and policymaking.
Amy holds a doctorate in Theology from the University of Oxford.
