DVDs of Summer Convention and Congress 2010 – these recordings are finally available as a complete set of the lectures at each event from CPC for £15.00 and £5.00 (+p&p) respectively. Many apologies for the delay in their production. However thanks to our new skills and equipment the DVDs from the ‘Celebrating the King James Bible’ day 4th June 2011, are also available at £2.00 (+p&p) for two lectures. The recordings from this year’s Summer Convention are in production now.
This was a very enjoyable time of renewed friendships and fellowship as usual though many regular members were greatly missed. There were presentations to Miss Carol Cream and Mrs May Browning at the Welcome Meeting in acknowledgement of their years of work and support. Also to John & Sheila Battersby and Michael & Muriel Jarvis in their absence – they will receive their gifts as soon as possible. Watch out for photos and a full report in the next Newsletter.
The highlight of the week was the first showing of the new film The Mystery of the Lost Tribes of Israel which was received very positively by everyone. With careful research and beautiful scenes filmed on location in Palestine, Europe and the United Kingdom the story of our forebears’ migrations is presented in a very inspiring way. All the DVDs of it were sold out in a very short time.
Hothorpe Hall once again provided a very comfortable venue with excellent facilities and food. We look forward to returning there next year and seeing you all again – keep the dates 23rd -28th July 2012.
Ulster Area Rally – in Belfast on Saturday, 17th September in the usual venue. The film The Mystery of the Lost Tribes of Israel will be shown.

92nd Annual Congress – in Ashbourne near Derby, Friday, 7th October – Monday 10th October. Theme “As Lively Stones in a Spiritual House” – come along to enjoy this weekend of fellowship and teaching.
Our Cultural Heritage – another visit to the British Museum on Saturday, 22nd October, this time to look at the Greek, Trojan and Spartan exhibits.
Celebrating the King James Bible – this was held at HQ in Low Etherley and was a very interesting and enjoyable day. The President, Michael Clark opened the proceedings and then Rev Barrie Williams gave a fascinating lecture on the origins of this translation of the Bible. After a substantial buffet lunch, David Aimer took us through the different editions down the centuries finishing with the very latest technology for accessing the King James Bible. Martin Lightfoot chaired a panel for a light-hearted ‘Q.I.’ on the Bible to complete the day which was closed by Michael Clark.
