It’s hard to believe May is already here! This year seems to be flying by… Here are a few things that are happening locally this month for your diaries.

The Age of Creativity Festival is a national festival celebrating creativity. We are hosting 4 workshops at Goldthorpe Pentecostal Community Church, encouraging people to have a go at something creative they may not have tried before. All sessions are free and there’s no need to book – just turn up! All sessions are run by Christians from local churches who are very talented in these area.
