A date for your diary – New Horizon 2018 – Saturday 4th to Friday 10th August 2018
The 30th annual New Horizon event is set to take place from 4th – 10th August 2018. Once again, the Ulster University Coleraine Campus will provide the venue for a week of world-class teaching and worship.
Looking forward to this year’s event, a spokesperson for New Horizon said:
“Our theme for NH2018 is: TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
The chief end of mankind is to glorify God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and enjoy Him forever. What does it mean to live before an audience of One? To be enamoured, consumed and awe-struck simply by the glory of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit? To know Him better? To enjoy Him more?
Our lives, our world, even our churches, are too often filled with distractions that obstruct and obscure our vision of God to the detriment of our souls.
As we celebrate our 30th anniversary at New Horizon, we can think of no better way to use the gift of the time He has given us than to glorify God and enjoy Him (this August and forever).
To gather to the praise of His glory.
To learn to the praise of His glory.
To worship to the praise of His glory
– the glory of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
New Horizon 2018 will, as always, have several outstanding speakers over the course of the week.
The Evening Celebration on Saturday and Sunday will be led by renowned American author, Philip Yancey. Fourteen million copies of his books have been sold worldwide, making him one of the best-selling evangelical Christian authors. Two of his books have won the ECPA’s Christian Book of the Year Award. The Jesus I Never Knew in 1996, and What’s So Amazing About Grace? in 1998.
The speaker for the Monday to Thursday Evening Celebrations will be Sam Allberry. Sam is a pastor based at St Mary’s Church in Maidenhead UK. He is a speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, an editor for The Gospel Coalition, and the author of Is God Anti-Gay?
Friday’s Evening Celebration will be taken by Bishop Ken Clarke. Ken has served in parishes in Northern Ireland, in Chile with the South American Mission Society (SAMS), and in Crinken, Dublin. Before becoming Bishop of Kilmore Elphin and Ardagh in 2001 he was Rector of Coleraine Parish for 15 years. He has led missions and preached at Conferences and Conventions in different parts of the world.
Professor Rikk Watts is looking forward to delivering the Morning Bible Teaching from Monday until Friday of NH2018 week. Rikk served as Regent College’s Professor of New Testament from 1996-2016. Along with his position as a Research Professor with Regent, he is currently the Dean of Theology at Alphacrucis College in Australia.
