The school holidays and height of the visitor season is upon us, and it coincides as usual with the Keswick Convention – a gathering of Christians from all over the country and beyond which has met there annually for well over a century. Anyone is free to go along and listen to some internationally renowned speakers, and be led in worship by Stuart Townend among others. It is little more than half an hour’s drive away, and is a thoroughly recommended midweek visit.

The regular Sunday worship continues week by week at Holy Trinity, Langdale. The Lectionary directs us to St Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians over the next five weeks – a wonderfully inspiring little book with powerful themes of reconciliation, transformation, unity and spiritual self-defence. Do come along to the 10.30am Sunday Service to learn more. Very young children have activities at the back of the church, but the talk is designed to be accessible to a wide range of listener – including older children. Various parish walks are planned, but we don’t arrange these too far in advance because of the unreliability of the weather (I say that after 8 weeks of almost uninterrupted sunshine!, but it seems like we are beginning to experience a shift back to a more typical Langdale weather pattern!). On Sunday 19th August there will be an extra service in Little Langdale Chapel aimed at families – particularly those with Primary School-aged children – on the theme of Disciples of Jesus; this month we shall be looking at Martha and Mary. It is an informal service, with craft activities and games on the topic with refreshments and hot or cold drinks available and lasts for about an hour. Visitors will be warmly welcomed.
