Celebrate Recovery Events

Celebrate Recovery UK Events are an important way of communicating our plans for training and developing the ministry across the UK. Typically we host a UK Conference, several Ministry Leaders meetings and other events throughout the year. This is the page to find the details of forthcoming events. If you have questions about anything relating to Celebrate Recovery Event planning in the UK please use our enquiry form.

Ministry Leaders Events

The Ministry Leaders Events run quarterly and are designed to equip Celebrate Recovery leaders with the tools they need to use Celebrate Recovery to it’s full potential. We also use these sessions to share information on what is taking place globally in the Celebrate Recovery ministry.

The Seven Keys of Celebrate Recovery: Key 1 – Worship

The large group worship time at Celebrate Recovery is the first Key or, as we see in the leader's guide, the first pillar of a strong and vibrant Celebrate Recovery group. Worship points us to JESUS and clearly sets us apart from other recovery groups. At its core,...

Amazing Grace Testimonies

Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,  That saved a wretch; like me!I once was lost, but now am found,  Was blind, but now I see. I love testimonies! I love hearing what a wonderful God we have – loving, seeking, forgiving, full of amazing grace. I...

A Round up of 2023

Dear all, Once again, Christmas celebrations are here and as 2023 ends it's good to look back to see all that we have achieved this year. As I have said many times, Christmas is one of my favourite times as it brings me back to the realisation of what Jesus did...

What is it that makes attending Celebrate Recovery events, in the US and in the UK,  worthwhile? I asked a couple of the guys who came to October’s Celebrate Recovery UK Conference what they felt they got out of the day. Pete is an Open Share Group leader. It was...

My Identity In Christ – A Poem

How do we use our mistakes to help others?

In Celebrate Recovery we have a saying that ‘God never wastes a hurt’ which, for those of us who have been in recovery for a while, we know is true, but how does this happen? One of my starkest recollections of my life before attending Celebrate Recovery was the...

What it means to be a UK Rep

Since coming to Celebrate Recovery in 2011 and having worked through a number of hurts, hangups and habits that were holding me back for many years, I still have to pinch myself when I see God using my messes to help others, and having the privilege of leading a...

Starting a New Group

I would like to offer some encouragement to Celebrate Recovery groups that are just starting out. So how did we start? We looked at various Christian recovery programmes. We chose Celebrate Recovery because it focused on our identity in Christ and the hope of recovery...
