When the prophet Habakkuk was alive matters were similar to what is happening today. It was a time of spiritual and international crisis. He was puzzled - why was God not doing something about the apostacy of his people, their injustice and their cruelty?
God answered: 'I am doing something about it.' But it was not the answer the prophet wanted to hear.
God said he was raising up a cruel nation who would teach them a sobering lesson.
To Habakkuk, that was even worse! The Empire of Babylon was notorious - so why let them do it?
But good would result, and Habakkuk realised he had to live by faith in his faithful God.
Does it sound familiar?
That was the subject of the 2021 Convention.
Your support will help to maintain and improve the work pf the Convention. Thank you.
The main event is an annual 3-day conference in early August. It is funded by donations, so there is no charge for taking part. You can come to as many or as few meetings as you wish.
People come from many parts of the country as well as the local area.
The day begins with a time of prayer, followed by a break.
The morning and evening meetings major on explaining a passage of the Bible and applying it to our lives. In the afternoons various Christian organisations tell about their work - from helping the persecuted, through Bible translation, to caring for families.
The mix of activities includes stalls, book reviews, and the opportunity to explore ideas with the speakers, and mingle with everyone taking part.
