‘JOY – the surprise of the Gospel’ is the result of an initiative from the Scripture Working Group of the Bishops’ Conference, developed by a group of Catholic Dioceses in the north of England.

  The intention behind the Scripture Festival, ‘JOY – the surprise of the Gospel’, is to give opportunities for people to engage with the Good News in different, enjoyable and fun ways.  The hope is that fresh approaches may bring us all closer to Jesus Christ in our times and places.  We also hope that we will all learn something more that will help us grow towards the Father.

  Everyone is invited to this joyful and informative day which is open to all who want to know more about the Bible, and to encounter God’s Word in new and dynamic ways. Through talks, workshops, exhibitions, and worship, Festival-goers will see the Holy Scriptures in a whole new light!

Tickets are only £5 and booking is available online at http://www.scripturefestival.org/
