Conferences & Retreats

Ladies Conference 2020

MAY 29-31 OR JUNE 5-7

A weekend of personal retreat, refreshment and renewal is in store for you during 2020

Life these days seems to move at a hectic pace. The list of demands and ‘to-do’s’ grows daily leaving us longing for a reset, a pause, a chance to catch our breath. A weekend away has been designed for you to do just that: retreat, refresh and renew. The Staff Ladies at Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre invite you to come and spend focused time in God’s Word, be quiet in Christ’s presence and enjoy being a little spoiled too.

Conference Speaker

Sue Gilmore

We are thrilled to have Sue Gilmore join us to open the Word during these weekends. Sue brings her infectious love of the Lord Jesus and her British humour and charm to the teaching series.  Sue has recently retired from Capernwray Hall in England where she served as Bible School Registrar and Women’s Pastoral Adviser.

Her loves include walking the Lake District Hills or by the sea in Morecambe, reading a good book or taking in a film. Sharing Christ’s Life over a pot of tea with friends or neighbours is also one of her many joys.

Conference Topic:

Finding Adventure in Unexpected Places

 Studies in the Book of Jeremiah

The book of Jeremiah is full of treasures for those who want to know how to live life to the full.

God chose to speak to His people through Jeremiah when they refused to listen.

The adventures God chose for Jeremiah were not easy and included locales such as the Throne Room, the House of the Potter, the Heart of every Woman and the Promises that sustain through the Pain.  Take up the challenge of ‘running with the horses’ and find adventure in the most unexpected place.
