Celebrate Recovery UK Networking Day May 2017


It was great to see many of you on Saturday May 6th 2017 at the UK Network Day. Thank you for coming and bringing others from your groups. It was a key day for Celebrate Recovery in the UK and many have said how helpful and inspiring it was.

We heard three powerful testimonies – one from a Ministry Leader, another from a couple and a third one from a young woman. God is surely using Celebrate Recovery to change lives!

We shared news from the last year of how we have been working with you all to lay good foundations on which to build Celebrate Recovery in the UK.

We hope the seminars gave people inspiration and ideas for developing their Celebrate Recovery groups as well as taking their involvement in CR to the next level.


The Area Reps meet on 8th July to plan for the future so if you haven’t already shared your feedback and suggestions with us, please do!


UK Videos


It was great to launch our three new UK videos. These were produced to help introduce Celebrate Recovery to churches but I think everyone agrees that to have UK voices in Celebrate Recovery videos is very positive in helping people identify better with the programme. So if you can make use of the videos in your groups in any way, please do. You can watch and download them by clicking on these links:


The Eight Principles Of Celebrate Recovery

12 Steps with Bible Verses

Our Journey Through 8 Biblical Principles


As we said on Saturday, this is just the start of CR UK videos. We hope to produce more videos which could be helpfully used in your groups and on social media.


Next Newsletter


We’ll send the next Friends’ Newsletter out within the next month so please remember to pass me the email addresses of your CR team and others who would like to receive UK newsletters every three or four months. It’s great to be building connections and growing strong together.


Please remember that we are here to support you. Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.


With every blessing,


The UK Team
