Looking forward to the annual conference, and 30th anniversary of
At this time of the year we are always looking forward to our annual
This year the conference will be very special. It will be held at
‘The Hayes’ in Swanwick from January 11th - 16th, 2019. It will be
special because it is a good conference, and also because it will
mark the beginning of our 30th anniversary year. Christians Aware
was registered as a charity in the Autumn of 1989.
We are hopeful that many members and friends will come to the
conference, to mark such a special year, but also because the
issues we will be looking at are vital for the future of our planet.
We will offer excellent resources and talks on work for
sustainability, for the environment, for farming and for healthy
food. We have chosen this focus because we know that there is
an urgency for farming and the environment to move together
towards a sustainable future. Good food production must go
together with good management of the environment and with care
for animal welfare. None of this can be taken for granted.
The opening speaker on Friday evening of the conference is
Professor John Wibberley from the Royal Agricultural University in
Cirencester. Adam Boulter, priest and artist, will lead the bible
study. Claudine McCready and Barbara Woods will challenge
participants to work for ‘Abundant Gifts. Abundant Life,’ for every
person. Saturday evening will be presented by David Buckland,
the director of Cape Farewell who is also an artist. Ellen Teague,
who is a journalist working with the Columbans, will give the final
talk, summing up and also looking ahead. Geoff Weaver will lead
the music during the weekend and there will be a children’s
programme and excellent seminars.
