Messy Church

Poster logo yellow backgroundIf your Superhero has enough whizz! and pow! left in them after the Superhero party, why don’t you stay put in the marquee for an activity session with  Christian Story Teller Alexa Tewkesbury, hosted by Messy Church?

Brochures Away!

Tom and brochuresThe brochures have been printed; we’ve collected them; stuffed the flyers in them (thanks, team); and Tom has loaded them into his car. In fact, the first few are being delivered as I type. (If you hear something coming through your letterbox as you read this, it could well be your copy.)

And if you prefer your information electronically, you can find a link to the full brochure on the Summer Festival page.

We’re On Our Way

Leaflet v1

The competition to design the cover for this year’s Chudfest brochure is now closed. Many thanks to everyone who entered; we will be announcing the winner very shortly. The brochure is currently being prepared and will be with you towards the end of next month.

And in the meantime, the Save the Date leaflet is being delivered to all the houses in town over the next few days. This is your chance to see what’s on the programme and get the key dates in your diaries. We’ve got some exciting new events coming up, plus a whole load of old favourites (and I don’t just mean the Committee Members!).

It may not seem like it, especially when we’re being battered by wind and rain, but summer’s just around the corner. You are going to hear a lot more from us over the next three months. Here’s to another great Summer Festival.

These lists will appear at appropriate events and here on the website after 13th July.
