What is Celebrate?

Charles WhiteheadCelebrate is a family Catholic Charismatic Conference for all.

Our main holiday conference runs during Easter week in Devon and is organised by a team from Catholic Charismatic Renewal, it accommodates 1500 people. 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 REGIONAL WEEKENDS around the UK.

Sadly we are unable to run Celebrate Ilfracombe at Easter 2016 due to work being carried out at the college premises. However we look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 Regional 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 2016 weekends.

In the Peace and Joy of Christ,


Charles Whitehead
Conference Chairman
