Annual Celebrate Conference goes regional in 2008

 Every year, for the last 14 years around 1,500 people have attended the CELEBRATE Family Conference, during Easter Week, with young and old alike joining together in a vibrant and faith filled atmosphere to celebrate the Love of God. But .... its 15th year, 2008, will be different! There will be NO CELEBRATE in Devon, but there will be seven weekends, around the UK, the first in March and the last in November. The Cardinal has said about the weekends: "Since 1994, the annual Celebrate Family Conference, which I visited in 2003, has been a great encouragement to adults, young people, and children of all ages, with its emphasis on good, practical Christian teaching, celebration, services and fun". He added "I am delighted that the new Weekends will make the CELEBRATE experience available to many more people in the local parishes, and I join with you in praying for their success". The weekends will be running children's and young adults' streams, always an important feature of CELEBRATE and we intend it to be equally important and well run during the weekends. The weekends will be held in Guildford, Manchester, Southampton, Princethorpe, St Albans, Brighton and Bristol and are all non-residential.
