Cool & Crazy Weekend at Calverley

Following on from the success of the Schools Noah's Ark Day project, Calverley have once again received a donation to enhance Christian Children's work in the area. So, in October, John Hardwick, author, songwriter and creative Christian communicator is coming to Calverley. He will lead a fun and lively weekend.

There will be a training workshop for those involved in Children's ministry and anyone who leads worship where youngers are present on the evening of Friday 14 October, and on Saturday 15 October a morning activity session for 5-11s and an All Age Cool and Crazy Praise Party on the Sunday morning. The training workshop and service are opento everyone; however, please book for the workshop.

For the events on Saturday, priority will be given to Calverley children, but if you contact our children's workshop northkids@bradfordnorth.org.uk before 26 September, places can be booked for youngsters across the circuit.

Calverley are really excited by this opportunity…
