What is Celebrate?

Charles WhiteheadCELEBRATE is a Holiday Conference for Christians of all ages, it runs during Easter week and is  organised by a team from Catholic Charismatic Renewal. Our vision is to offer you a spring event which combines good Christian teaching and celebration, with an opportunity to relax and enjoy a short break after the winter - in other words, refreshment for body, mind and spirit for all the family during the Easter Holidays. Watch our taster video.

Most of us are Catholics, but we are always delighted to welcome a good number from other Christian traditions, including some of our conference speakers. We have much to learn from each other and to share and celebrate during the week.

Alongside the CELEBRATE conference in Ilfracombe we also offer a number of CELEBRATE WEEKENDS around the UK and this year have a new location in the North East.

Sadly we are unable to run Celebrate Ilfracombe at Easter 2014 due to the national split in school holidays this year but we will be running in 2015 so keep the week free!

In the meantime, we look forward to the 2014 Weekends

It all promises to be an exciting time, and once again we’ve assembled teams of gifted people to challenge and inspire us with the Good News, and to entertain us with their wit, wisdom and God-given artistic talents in East Anglia, Cleethorpes, Wales, North West, Twickenham, Brighton, Southampton, Torquay, Bristol, North East and St. Albans. The organising teams work hard leading up to the Weekends, sensing God’s guidance along the way. We are immensely grateful to everyone involved in the Celebrate, and we thank God for all of you.

It isn’t boring to be a Christian today!

Hoping to see you at one of the 2014 weekends.

In the Peace and Joy of Christ,


Charles Whitehead
Conference Chairman
