ECG — Equipping, Calling, Going Scarborough 18th- 23rd April
Head north to Scarborough on the Tuesday after Easter for ECG — a five day Christian Conference of worship, fellowship, prayer, teaching and fun.
It caters for all ages providing celebrations, all age worship, bible studies, seminars, entertainments and mission activities.
This year ECG will be 10 years old so there will be a special birthday celebration on the final Sunday morning.
Many of the speakers and delegates are from a Methodist background but speakers from other denominations are also invited thus providing a varied and interesting family-friendly programme.
It is a time to reinvigorate one's spiritual life, spend time with God and hopefully be equipped to make a difference on returning home.
This year's theme is 'Infusion- Jesus in the blood stream'.
