Jesus walks with us:

I am excited that By Design Theatre, Rise Theatre and the team from Stay Awake, amongst others are coming together to run a conference for young people aged from 10 – 16. The young people will have the chance to explore the Emmaus walk piece of scripture through the arts. There will be a number of workshops on offer including Art, Craft, Drama and Dance. Those attending will have the opportunity to attend more than one workshop during the day. We are asking for £10 contribution to cover the costs of speakers and the lunch provided.
