Spring Harvest 2019 was one of our best Easter breaks ever, but 2020 looks to be an even greater year as we look to engage with the stimulating theme of Unleashed: The Acts Church Today. All of our age groups from toddlers to teens we will be working through with the book of Acts as we together re-imagine what our churches will look like fully engaged and fully empowered by God to bring Good News to the world. Will you be joining us as an individual, a family… or even as a church for this great combination of worship, teaching and holiday break?
With this in mind, we are pleased to announce your adult meeting Bible teachers and worship leaders across each of our venues for Spring Harvest 2020.
