Spring Harvest 2022
We've already introduced you to the 2022 Spring Harvest theme: Restore, Renew, Rebuild. But maybe you're wondering, what does that really mean? God loves taking the broken pieces of the universe and practising resurrection with them. That’s the nature of God, that's the character of God. He holds the fragile in His hands and He practises resurrection. Dare we invite God to take the dust and the dirt, the fragile and the broken and breathe new life into it? We’ll let the video explain more…



Join us in 2022 and let's Restore, Renew and Rebuild together. Book your place to join us on our brand new event site here: https://springharvestevent.org/
