Miracles at EasterFest!

St Mary’s joined Stronghold and other churches for EASTER FEST on Lakehouse field, 5 – 9th April .

It was brilliant!  The event included a Children’s club, circus skills, a Family Fun day with a bouncy castle, mega slide, assault course, Total Wipe Out and an egg hunt. There was live drama with actor Toby Bacare (Death in Paradise, etc.) on the first day and a fascinating Q & A afterwards, as well as drama,  music, games and stories of hope each evening.  Another highlight was a youth concert on Easter Saturday and the Easter Celebration on the Sunday, with Vicar Paul leading communion.

Speaker Jon Conrathe wrote:

“Wonderful things happening here as people are coming to Christ on the streets, in the tent, and miracles of healing taking place. A joy to pray with a lady yesterday who had experienced such horrendous abuse through her life, had been knifed on a number of occasions, just a story of intense sorrow. She was riddled with pain from arthritis, but was instantly healed as she forgave her abusers, gave her life to the Lord, and was baptised in The Spirit, speaking in other tongues… she left the tent with tears of joy ! Just one of many beautiful testimonies of Jesus’ saving grace changing lives here in Weaverham. Praise God!”
