July 2016

Summer is here! What a busy few weeks it has been - we have hosted prayer activities for families and children as part of the 'Thy Kingdom Come' events, worked with the Life Exhibition with schools in Stockton, enjoyed the training day on 'Nurturing Tiny Disciples', attended the Messy Church International Conference also hosted our Year Six Prayer Space and Leavers Services in Durham Cathedral! I think I may need a holiday soon! You can find out more about these via the links below:

The Messy Church International Conference was amazing! With over 200 delegates from all over the world attending it was a time of meeting new friends, sharing stories and learning new things.
