Spiritual Formation Forum 2019


The Hayes, Swanwick, Derbyshire         12-14 November 2019

I would like to invite you to join myself and others who are interested in Spiritual Formation (the process by which we become like Christ) for a short 48 hour gathering which will be held this year at The Hayes Conference Centre near Swanwick in Derbyshire.

The Forum will start with registration at 4pm on Tuesday 12th November, and finish after lunch on Thursday 14th November. The cost for accommodation and meals will be £169, slightly more than last year due to the increase in the Swanwick fees. We are able to offer single rooms without additional cost (though if you are coming as a couple, or wish to share with a friend you may do so). All rooms are ensuite. We are able to offer a small bursary for anyone who made need a little help with the fees. Please ask us about this.

This year’s theme will be ‘Finding our resilience in God’ and I am delighted to be sharing the teaching with my good friend Dr Debbie Hawker. We have just co-written a book on this topic that will come out in March 2019, so we will be sharing the main insights of this through the talks, along with plenty of interaction and group work. Debbie is a clinical psychologist based in Long Eaton, and highly respected internationally within the Missions community for her work in member care. You can find out more about her at https://www.resilientexpat.co.uk/DrDebbieHawker.html As always, we aim to provide an opportunity to meet with like-minded people, to receive good input to encourage you in your ministry, and to have space and time to be refreshed yourself.

If you would to join please contact Susan Chalmers (smchalmers16@hotmail.com) who will send you a booking form.

Early registration will be of a great help to us in our planning and preparation. We have booked only 25 rooms, so cannot guarantee places once we reach this number.
