Diocesan Scripture Festival Day
The Bishops have asked that we celebrate 2020 as the Year of the Word, with the beautiful title of The God Who Speaks. As part of our diocesan celebrations we are organising a Scripture Festival Day for families, catechists, readers, people who know a lot about the Bible, and people who don’t know anything at all, but wish they did!
With fantastic speakers, CJM music, Rise Theatre, a multitude of workshops, youth and children’s streams, the National Scripture Tour and a sky dancing St Jerome, book your place now and join us for a proper diocesan festival day.
Prices include tea, coffee and a sandwich lunch, and there are free places for those who volunteer to be part of our team.
We have special provision for children and young people which we want to be every bit as good as what’s going on for the adults. They are going to have the best time! Rise Theatre and the Cafod Schools Team will be going into the streams. We will also have the fabulous John Hardwick, Christian puppeteer for the children’s stream.
Our children and youth streams run from Reception to Yr 6, and Yr 7 to Yr13. All adult leaders will hold a diocesan DBS check. All children/young people must have a designated fee-paying adult present at the festival. Parents are responsible for their children/young people when not attending streams.
