Worship

There will be an opportunity to try out lots of different forms of worship, in our large marquee in the centre of the site. There will be informal sung worship, a school style communion and more! At 2pm  we will all join together in worship for a service of celebration and explore the themes emerging from The Rural Commission.

Give it a go!

Throughout the day there will be a chance to give something new a go! Maybe try bell ringing for the first time, with a large mobile ring on site. Or spend some time prayerfully in God’s creation, experiencing ‘Walks of Wonder’ or even brave a ‘Barefoot Wander’

Family Fun

Messy Church will run all day, using hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, to reflect a God of creativity and to give people a chance to play together. There will also be an opportunity to learn more and experience Open the book, Godly Play and Explore Together.

Relax

There will be lots of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Brooksby Hall. Bounce on the bouncy castle, enjoy lawn games like Giant Jenga, tuck in to some lunch from the BBQ, meet the farm animals and spend time in the 24/7 prayer room.

Come along! Vivien will be going and has seats in her car. Ring her if you'd like to go 01530 270354, or go under your own steam,.
