Wednesday 30th March: ACCelerate Volunteer Evening, 7 – 8.30pm at the Wickbourne Centre. Ben Young writes: This will be for anyone that helps out with any part of ACCelerate. We’ll take a look at what we do, why we’re doing it and how we’re doing it along with a few other things (safeguarding, values etc.). It’s a way of us bringing everyone together (with pizza!) so we are all ‘on the same page’ when working with children and young people. Hope you can make it!
Tuesday 12th April: The Bereavement Journey is a five week course exploring some of the issues surrounding grief in a safe environment.

21st – 24th April: Stew Smith is looking for men from ACC to embark on the 4M’s Xtreme Character Challenge in Scotland. “An XCC is a mind, body and soul adventure – an active and challenging endurance event for men, out in the wild. The culmination of the XCC is to lead men to the highest place on earth: the foot of the cross. Numerous men have become inspired and enthused after embarking on a spiritual adventure of a lifetime from ACC. Join over 150 others this spring.” For more info see Stew or click here.

We also need volunteers to help set up on Sunday 24th April after church from around 1 – 4pm, as well as some help required packing down on the Friday from 3pm.
