The Alive festival office is buzzing! Work is well underway to bring you Alive 2014 – Grace Unpacked which takes place on Saturday 24th – Monday 26th May 2014. Top national, regional and local speakers have been contacted and their remit is to share how God’s grace has worked in their lives and to encourage us to unpack God’s gift of grace for ourselves.
‘For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ Eph 2:8-10
We look forward to seeing you in May, for a great weekend.
