is a major Christian event planned for Norwich in June following on from last year’s successful Churches Community Action Fair.
It aims to be an expression of all aspects of the life of the local Christian community and will take the form of a series of events planned around mid June in Norwich city centre.
Celebrate development officer, John Betts, said: "The city centre will be buzzing with a whole raft of activities from serious debates to fun activities. The body of Christ together reaching out to the community without hiring an evangelist but using what we already have.” Jill Gower, who is leading the prayer team, said: "This will be a poignant time for our city."
