Workshops & Seminars
In The Big Tent
Aside from the Field Trips and fossil hunting, the main components of the convention are the daily workshops and seminars. The workshops will give you an opportunity to delve deeper into what we have seen out in the field, clean and project your fossils, and make the most of the convention. The seminars take place each night, and feature various speakers from Creation Research and other organisations.
Making the Most of the Convention
The Rocks Cry Out Convention will provide a full program of activities, designed to educate, inspire, and help to give an answer for the hope that is within you! (1 Pet 3:15)
Engaging with God’s World
The day will start out with a Bible Study and Devotions – led by Indiana Joe. Afterwards, there will be an overview session of the day – what to expect and what we’ll be looking at. What follows will be field trips to local fossil beaches, workshops to clean and prepare your fossils, and learn what we can from what we’ve found.
Each evening there will be 2 seminars, featuring Creation Research speakers and others, dealing with Biblical and scientific topics. There will be an opportunity to ask questions to the speakers after each session.
Seminar topics will include Noah’s Flood, Design, History, Creation Evangelism, Tower of Babel, and many more.
The Convention will feature fossil displays from the Creation Research UK Museums Project, along with life-sized dinosaurs, amazing archaeology, and much more!
