Illumination Trail

Our kids work team have been doing more creative thinking about what we could offer to our young families to bring them some light on what is often celebrated as the darkest night of the year.

On Saturday 31st October we would love anyone with children to join us for our Illuminate Trail around the Oakwood Centre. We have lots of glow in the dark fun and crafts planned as we look at what the Bible says about light.

Book your Illumination Trail time slot here.
