Deeper EXTRA 2021

A Family Crisis, A Family Solution We’re really looking forward to Andy Castle coming to share some thoughts on how we engage with discipling the younger generations in our community as we slowly emerge from this pandemic. This is a message we ALL need to hear, digest and put into practice.

As always this event is free with donations welcome on the night.

What is Deeper?

DEEPER is an annual three-evening conference held in the spring each year. It aims to offer high quality evangelical preaching by inviting conference speakers who share our passion to ‘thoroughly equip’ God’s people today.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV)

Deeper is delighted to be a member of the Keswick Fellowship

Each year we invite a guest speaker to take us deeper into God’s Word, either by focusing on a topic, a doctrine or specific section of the Bible (see below for previous years). Click here for a list of previous speakers.

Running this event over three consecutive nights enables us to engage with the Bible in a slightly different way than our Sunday teaching allows. The longer time frame hopefully also helps bed deeper roots for all who hear, as we seek to grow as followers of Jesus.

what shape DOES THE event take?

Each evening starts at 7.30pm with a time of prayer and sung worship. This is followed by two sessions of teaching (30-40 mins each) with a short refreshment break in the middle — this hopefully gives you some time to process what you’ve heard and perhaps note down some questions for our speaker. Some speakers also provide notes you can download; recordings of the event are often available, subject to the speaker’s wishes. Click here to find recordings of previous years (select TOPICS).


  1. To help grow followers of Jesus: through in-depth Bible study and direction in how to apply that word today;
  2. To bless the local Christian community with a free, quality, discipleship event;
  3. To enable more people to gain access to God’s word by supporting the work of Bible translators.


As a free discipleship event, we also want to ensure we keep our focus on mission. Therefore, in recognising how blessed we are to have such easy access to God’s living word in so many translations, each evening we welcome donations to support the work of Wycliffe Bible Translators. If you can afford to give—that’s amazing! If not, don’t worry—still come along; we don’t want anyone to miss out on this opportunity to go deeper in their walk with Jesus.

If you work the words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter
who dug deep and laid the foundation of his house on bedrock.

Luke 6:48 (The Message)
