Church in The Park 2019 – A New Feel for all the Family


Following on from the adventure we had in 2017, we are keen to continue our partnership in the gospel and be actively sharing the good news of Jesus in the heart of our city by partnering again in a city mission next spring. As an SCN church, we would love your wholehearted involvement. The dates of the event are Wednesday May 29th – Sunday June 2nd 2019 (half term week).

The event is simply called ‘Church in the Park’. The concept is:

During the daytime the team will spend time in the neighbourhoods, streets, and parks of our city, and giving out invitations to come to ‘Church in the Park’. Three times a day, there will be a gathering in the large marquee in Houndwell park, where there will be short evangelistic talks, testimonies, live worship, and prayer for the sick. The aim of the evenings, especially, will be for Christians to invite their friends and family to see and hear the good news.

There are some changes we are making to ensure we have an event that is suitable for all the family during half term week. New initiatives include:

  • Family friendly meetings at 12pm and 4pm
  • Fun activities around the tent between 1pm and 4pm
  • A BBQ for everyone about 5pm
  • Magazine style 7.30pm gatherings, including performance pieces, amazing stories of lives changed by Jesus, a short gospel message and rounding off with praise, worship and ministry.We would love leaders to help us lead our churches into mission together

Can you help us? Here is what you can do:

PRAY - lease pray for the city, and for the team planning the event.
PLAN - Please let us know if you would like involvement at the planning stages.
PEOPLE - Please begin to think of who might have gifts and abilities that will serve the event (such as hospitality, children, evangelism, administration, sports).
POUNDS - Please plan to partner with us financially. If every church is generous, then we will be able to put on a wonderful event to the glory of God, and see many lives transformed. The budget for the whole event is just under £20,000, so please be super-generous!
