Mission

Mission has been at the very heart of the Keswick Convention for more than 100 years – and it still is! Join us at Keswick Convention 2021 to hear what God is doing around the world and how you can get involved.

This year we are working in partnership with All Nations Christians College. They will be joined by a host of volunteers to speak to about mission.

Look out for the missions exhibition display in the Packing Hall and the Service Station in Base Camp.
