Celebration Weekend 2018

Saturday 20 October at St Sampson's Church, Cricklade

We have decided to move the Saturday of the Celebration weekend from 7th July to the 20th October because a lot of people who really wanted to come are unable to. The weekend clashed with the Twinning weekend and also a number of people are away seeing family or on holiday. We have also struggled to find people from other churches to do the children’s work. I am sorry for those who were looking forward to the Saturday, and also for some who may not now be able to make it on 20th October, but could have made it on 7th July. We will look at doing this again in May next year which has often proven to be a better time of year.

The event will be on Saturday 20 October, 10:30am – 4:30pm in St Sampson’s Church

Similar to previous Church Awaydays there will be live contemporary worship music, relevant and exciting talks, time for socialising, time to learn in groups, and most importantly, opportunities to connect with God through his Holy Spirit and take the next step in our journey of faith.

Our Guest Speaker is John McGinley, Vicar of Holy Trinity Leicester, whom many will know from our previous Awayday in 2016.

The Itinerary for Saturday is as follows:
10:30am Welcome
10:40am Sung Worship (children to Groups)
10:55am John McGinley pt. 1
11:45am Prayer (children to be picked up)

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PACKED LUCH AND COLD DRINKS (Tea / coffee will be available at the start of each session)

Lastly – we are inviting all churches from across North Wiltshire to join us for the Saturday sessions to help inspire them and energise us together in the power of the Holy Spirit. Please make them feel welcome.
