College of Evangelists Events
St. Gregory’s Church, Dorset, will be hosting a free ‘Growing Faith with Children and Families’ event with speaker Lucy Moore at 12 pm. As the current Head of the ‘Growing Faith Foundation’, and founder of Messy Church seventeen years ago.
St John’s, Pewsey, are putting on their own creative workshop “for those locals interested in sharing and growing faith with busy active families”. This runs from 10 am - 2 pm, and will be led by Tom Price from the Archbishop's College of Evangelists. There will be provision for children to be looked after, but this event is focused on adults interested in sharing and growing their own faith.
In his mission-led weekend, the Archbishop will also spend time with members of the armed forces at Lyneham in Wiltshire, with school children in Dorset, members of the Gypsy and Traveller community in Poole and Prisoners at Erlestoke.
In the words of Archbishop Justin: “Please do everything you can to get involved. But above all, pray, pray, pray.” Join in by using our Rhythm of Prayer weekly booklets.
