Michelle Moran

Founder member of the Sion community in Essex, ex-president of International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services, and member of the Pontifical Council to the laity, Michelle Moran is an evangelist of 30 years and will be with us for the weekend. An incredible speaker and author, Michelle until very recently held office in the Vatican and will be fantastic at breaking down this year's theme.


David Wells

David Wells, is an extraordinary communicator, a great friend of Celebrate and has delighted Cardiff Archdiocese teachers and clergy in recent months. He is known for his ability to present deep truths of faith in a very human context. A leader of adult catechesis in Plymouth Diocese for 16 years, his current role is to assist schools in their contribution to the New Evangelisation. David is also the author of two books, The Reluctant Disciple and The Grateful Disciple.


Sue Whitehead

Sue, along with Charles her husband, is responsible for the inception of the Celebrate conference at Ilfracombe. She deals with all the administration of the Celebrate in Devon as well as using these talents for many other conferences such as the Harvesters Weekend at Woldingham and other interdenominational conferences. Her main task is the support she gives to her very busy husband.

Creative Liturgy, Worship and Drama


Worship at Celebrate Bristol is a fundamental part of our time together. We are fortunate to have locals Simon Gibbs and Emma McMillan with us again to lead us in Worship through the weekend.


We will also be energised and inspired by RISE theatre, a professional Christian theatre company with a passion for delivering exciting, original, transformative theatre. They work in schools, churches, events and festivals across the UK with the aim of inspiring people of all ages to realise their full potential in life.
