The Keswick Convention or Keswick Week was a series of meetings which surrounded the Spiritual Revivals of 1904 in Wales. God used the young evangelist, Evan Roberts, (pictured right) as an instrument of preaching and teaching. It is said that, as a result of the Welsh Revivals, many of the local taverns shut down and crime dramatically decreased. The Keswick Convention met yearly from 1870-current.
Early on, the convention would set an order for the meetings that would endure for generations. The series would run in succession.
1) Sin, its nature, man’s helplessness, man’s trespasses, man’s wickedness, the Christian’s sin and man’s incredible need.
2) Christ’s provision, His person and work, the exchange from Adam’s life to that of Christ.
3) Repentance, Consecration and Holiness, Abandonment to Christ, Sanctification by faith.
4) The Spirit filled life, Christ within the believer, His power and presence.
5) Evangelism and Missions as a Mandate.
