EVENTS
Tearfund wants you! They’re looking for volunteers to help at Christian festivals in 2016. There are lots of ways to be involved, and you get free entry, provision for catering and accommodation and time out for you to enjoy the event.

Have you booked for DEVOTED? I’ll be there on the Saturday for the live UCB broadcast. Join me!
