About the Event

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 5.15pm
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!

The teams you can sign up to serve on are: Welcome / Stewarding / Serving Tea and Coffee / Helping with afternoon activities / BBQ / Setting up on Tuesday and Packing away on Sunday.

Please register to serve by buying a Volunteer Ticket – it requires a small contribution of £10 towards administration and to produce your Church In The Park 2019 T-Shirt.
You can do so through Eventbrite here!
