Swanwick Residential Weekend 2018
The keynote speaker and leader for the weekend will be Rachel Lampard MBE,
Vice-President of Methodist Conference 2016–2017

Oceans of Justice, Rivers of Fairness
Speaking to the Conference gathered in London in 2016, Rachel Lampard said: “We live in a world where we need ‘oceans of justice’, where in the UK more than 1 in 4 children live in poverty, and where two million people die each year because of a lack of safe water or sanitation.”
Rachel is Team Leader of the Joint Public Issues Team and has worked for the Methodist Church as Secretary for Parliamentary and Political Affairs since 2000 with responsibility for the Church’s engagement with political issues in a range of areas.
As well as Rachel’s keynote sessions, there will be bible study and worship; a variety of workshops; time to make or renew friendships; time to relax together or find quiet space; time to share in conversation and to visit the Market Place.
The cost for the weekend (full board and conference fee) is £170. There are bursaries available (see downloadable form), and remember, your District may have training or other funds available to help with the cost.
