NEW WINE SUMMER EVENT: ‘UNITED’

Advance notice: This takes place over two separate weeks each summer. This year it has been moved to Peterborough Showground, which gives our church family a good opportunity to join with 10,000 others to worship, listen to inspiring talks, see resources and have fun. People can go for a whole week or a day. We are planning to take a group for the day on Thursday 8 August. The cost is likely to be around £35 per adult; tickets will be on sale in March. If you are interested, please let Katrina know as she is compiling a list: office@meridianbenefice.org. This will be a stimulating and faith building event so I encourage you to come along. If you would like to go but feel you can’t afford it, please let me know in confidence. Sheila
