Opening Night

This session will hold a mix of activities in order to get to know each other better, introduce newcomers and receive some thought-provoking input. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy old friendships and start building new ones! And we’ll do our best to add some real Dutch treats to the programme!

Worship and Prayer

The worship and prayer is a special time and not to be missed. It’s when the most significant business of CEVMA is done, with God and each other. A time during which we ‘tank up on grace’, share our challenges, joys and blessings and receive mutual encouragement for the work we are called to to. But most importantly, it’s a time when we can celebrate God’s Love and experience our unique bond in Jesus Christ!

Bible Talks

The Bible Talks have always been a highlight of CEVMA and an important aspect of our conference. This year will be no different as together we seek to learn more about the One we serve, how we keep Him at the centre of our lives and work.

CEVMA Networking

This has become a regular feature of our conference, one looked forward to and much anticipated. It’s an opportunity to share news about your organisation, projects and objectives. Sign up for a slot (approximately 7 minutes) at registration and come prepared with a show reel, clip or PowerPoint presentation, if you so desire – the time is yours.

Plenary sessions

The plenary sessions offer valuable insights in the ever changing world of international media. Speakers will discuss all kinds of topics related to our conference theme and cater to our needs and challenges as media professionals. There are also plenty of opportunities to hear from colleagues. You’ll find inspiration and encouragement for the work God has given you.

Outing

This year’s outing features a cruise on the famous River Thames, from Runnymede to Windsor through a quintessential part of England. Runnymede is where King John came in 1215 to place his seal on the Magna Carta (one of the most significant events in history). Many of the world’s constitutions have been based on this historic document, including the US. The boat trip takes us through a typical English village, through Windsor Great Park and past the Castle.

It was Stephen’s grandfather Cyril who inspired in him a love for the piano and a subsequent career as an accomplished pianist. Having earned a First Class Degree at the prestigious Christ Church College in Canterbury, he went on to receive a scholarship in Music Composition at the National Film School in Beaconsfield.

Since then his music has been heard on countless films and television programmes – many of them for the BBC and ITV. But music is not his only forte – he loves acting, and performing comedy – which he often does at the keyboard. Stephen recently made the audience laugh so much at the world famous Edinburgh Festival that his show received a 4 stars review in the media.

As well as private piano tutoring, he has launched his own Production Music Library Company. Stephen’s musical skills combined with his passionate faith in Christ mean he is well prepared to lead our worship sessions and also make us laugh – but not at the same time.

nick-jones

Nick Jones

A Media Studies course at England’s second media city Bristol, established a young Nick Jones on a pathway into film making. A subsequent 3 year course in Media Practice at the Bristol based University of the West of England, honed that passion into a conviction of the power of film to tell stories.

In particular it was his work on a documentary about a Christian professional footballer ’s work with Roma children in Bulgaria which fired up his passion for film making. As confirmation of his ability and talent, the film won two prestigious awards.

Today this enterprising 29 year old is working flat out for the video production company he started called ‘Filma King’ – a name which neatly incorporates his own vision for Christian Film making as well as corporate work for an increasing number of clients.
