5 – 14 October - CHELTENHAM CHURCHES PARTNERING WITH THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVALS

Bishop Rachel, alongside the Revd Nick Davies and others has developed a new partnership with Cheltenham Festivals to run a brand new family space.

This will be a colourful, informal and fun place where children and families can gather to get creative with ideas and words.

This is a great opportunity for the churches in Cheltenham to engage and be in conversation with the thousands of families who attend the Festival every year.

To run the family tent we are seeking volunteers who will help us take care of the families, help with making arts and crafts and be happy to chat with lots of people!

For more information and to register your interest, please contact Kerry Pateman on kpateman@glosdioc.org.uk or 01452 835512.
